3 Easy Steps, cold calling appointment maker for Contract Claims Consultancy

New cold calling companies are brought to our attention every single day. Some last 2 or 3 calls and you never hear anything about them and others seem to last for years.

3 Easy Steps is one of those companies that were already brought to our attention months ago. But now it seems they have started more actively.

3 Easy Steps cold calls timeshare owners and offers a consultation to evaluate a claim against their timeshare resort.

3 Easy Steps have a website – www.3easysteps.co.uk– where they explain how “simple” this procedure is.

This Website was registered on the 19th of November 2017 but apart from a telephone number 01923 889115 and email address timeshare@3easysteps.co.uk they don’t provide any company information, registration or an address.

All they do actually is explain that they work with “other” companies they call partners, supposed specialists in Timeshare Terminations and Timeshare Claims who can assist with termination and claims.

So 3 Easy Steps is not the claims specialist, they are not legal professionals, and as per their own explanations, they will pass the Consumer to “other specialist companies”.

Surprising though is that consumers who were approached by 3 Easy Steps were not really referred to legal professionals, but yet again to an “intermediate” company.

The company is Contract Claims ConsultancyCCC

The website and Companies House registration from CCC is from November 2017, but they display testimonial son their web from apparent happy customers with dates far before November 2017.

Contract Claims Consultancy or CCC explains on their website www.contractclaimsconsultancy.comthat they are a team of “highly trained assessors to advise on all owners of miss sold timeshare” but they insist that they are NOT solicitors and they will not give any legal advice.

So how many people does one need to speak to before you get to the solicitor who than finally can give you an opinion based on the legislation?

Does this make sense at all?

If you have been approached by a cold calling company wanting to make appointments for meetings or home visits in order to discuss a possible claim, please let us know.

Have you received a call from the resale company Grupo Marcia?

A new resale company has been reported under the name Grupo Marcia supposedly installed in Madrid.

Grupo Marcia contacts the Timeshare Members by phone and tells them that a company is interested in acquiring their weeks and the price offered is well above the current market price.

According to the testimony received from some Members, the buyer who allegedly would be interested in buying their weeks, is an important international company, Huazhu Hotel Group Limited, China, and Grupo Marcia even provides Members with a contract that seems to confirm that.

As usual with this type of business, Grupo Marcia asks the Member to pay fees in advance, and again, we ask ourselves how is it possible that these people are not aware of the European Timeshare Directive which clearly confirms that Pre-paid fee requests are not allowed when it comes to reselling timeshare weeks.

This is similar to the actions of all the other resale companies that are constantly forming and disappearing, and we strongly advise against paying money to this kind of company.


Company Details:

Grupo Marcia

Arquitecto Gaudi 11, Madrid, Spain

Telephone:0034 919 01 02 70

Legal representative is Mrs. Rebeca Garcia and Customer services employee is called Cecile Leroy.

Her email is c.leroy@grupomarcia.es

If Grupo Marciacontacted you from +34 919010270 with this offer or a similar offer, please let us know.

You can send us an email at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or leave your comments here on our blog. In both cases, we will answer you with more information.

Avez-vous reçu un appel de la société de revente, Grupo Marcia?

Une nouvelle société de revente a été reportée sous le nom Grupo Marcia soi-disant installé à Madrid.

Grupo Marcia contacte les Membres de multipropriété par téléphone et leur raconte qu’une société est intéressée par l’acquisition de leurs semaines et le prix offert est bien au-dessus du prix du marché actuel. 

Selon les témoignages reçus de certains Membres, l’acheteur qui soi-disant serait intéressé par le rachat de leurs semaines, est une entreprise importante internationale, Huazhu Hotel Group Limited, China et Grupo Marcia fournit même aux Membres un contrat qui semble confirmer cela.

Comme à l’accoutumé avec ce genre d’affaires, Grupo Marcia demande au Membre to payer des frais à l’avance, et encore une fois, nous nous posons la question de savoir comment est-il possible que ces personnes ne soient pas au courant de la Directive Européenne en matière de multipropriété qui confirme clairement que les demandes de frais à l’avance ne sont pas permises lorsqu’il s’agit de revente de semaines en temps partagé.

Cela ressemble aux agissements de toutes les autres compagnies de revente qui se créent et disparaissent continuellement, et nous déconseillons vivement de payer de l’argent à ce genre de société.


Détails de la société:

Grupo Marcia

Arquitecto Gaudi 11, Madrid, Espagne

Tel. 0034 919 01 02 70

Représentant légal Madame Rebeca Garcia et Conseillère clientèle Madame Cecile Leroy.

Leur email: c.leroy@grupomarcia.es

Si vous avez été contactés par Grupo Marcia avec cette offre ou une offre similaire, merci de nous le faire savoir.

Vous pouvez nous envoyer un email à customercare@mindtimeshare.com ou laisser vos commentaires ici sur notre blog. Dans les deux cas, nous vous répondrons avec davantage d’informations.

The strange case of the cheque lost in the post…

We can never warn enough times about the group of fake lawyers active in Tenerife.

These lawyers contact every single day consumers, and a range of names and companies used makes it quiet complicated to keep up the warnings.

But we certainly give it a good go!

One of the lawyers whom we warned about some time ago is AG Abogados.

This company might not be cold calling any longer under this name, but it seems that the consumers who actually fell for this scam in the first place, are now reaching other stages of the scam.

Initially AG Abogados offered the No win No fee claim, but suddenly procurators became involved and the consumer needed paying, a “reclaimable” tax (21%).

This tax payment was needed in order to release the funds.

Once the taxes were paid, the consumers were assured that a cheque was posted to them with the awarded money, great news!

But the good news doesn’t last long and now they are at the stage where indeed the cheque was released and posted but it turns out the cheque has been intercepted and stolen from the envelope.

The supposed investigations from AG Abogados show a company owned by “3 Ukrainians” cashed the cheque the same day.

The bank involved has now changed to La Caixa and the lawyers appointed by the court to sort things out are now Elias Elisa SA.

Please note that the whole story of the claim, the procurators, the taxes, the cheque, the 3 Ukrainians and now this office Elias Elisa SA is all FAKE!

There is no money and there never was.

If you are sad enough somewhere at a stage of the above mentioned story, than please STOP PAYING and contact us for more information.

New cold calling “Claims Company” by the name of Claim Traders

Claims companies seem to be very popular at the moment, everybody offers claims, everybody has had already many successful claims and almost everybody needs you to travel to a meeting place or want to visit you at home.

This time we have Claim Traders, and they are not different from all the others in this matter and surprisingly identical to a company called Claim Tracers about whom we posted a blog article in November 2017.

The website from Claim Traderswww.claimtraders.co.uk  –was registered at the end of April 2018, which means not even a month ago at the time of writing this blog article.

That seems a very short time for a company telling consumers they had many successful claims already…

Contact details are: info@claimtraders.co.ukas per the website, which apart from this email does not offer any telephone number.

Neither are there any further company details on the web such as Companies House registration or at leas tan office address.

Their offer from Claim Traders is compensation claim on a no win no fee basis. 30% if the action is successful including all taxes and VAT.

Funny enough, the person who cold calls, who certainly is not a legal professional of any kind, can already tell the consumer how much the claim will be and insists decisions have to be made quickly as the “claim date” is closing soon.

In order to join one of their many successful claims, the consumer will have to receive a “ senior claims advisor” at home who will complete the “EVI”.

EVI is an extended verification of identity, and all titleholders of the timeshare should be present at the meeting with their Passports to identify themselves correctly.

They state the claim will be based on mis selling. So even before actually knowing the consumer’s story or having seen the paperwork, they already know what the claim will be about and how much he can claim. Interesting!

(Especially taking in mind that in all this process no qualified lawyer or solicitor has been involved so far.)

In spite of what is confirmed by Claim Traders in their email and on the phone, the small print on the website mentions that Claim Traders are a web based service, introducing you specialist companies and their services within the timeshare and holiday club claims sector.

So how can the person calling from Claim Traders make statements about amounts to claim and how the claim will be done, if they are a purely intermediary?

When submitting your details to Claim Traders with how many companies will they share your contact details? How many companies will be calling you as from there onwards?

If you have been approached by Claim Traders from telephone 03332 127 055

Please send us a message through the Contact Us form or place a comment on the blog.

Avez-vous affaire avec le notaire Eva Maria Boluda Lopez pour une revente de multipropriété?

Nous avons déjà informé via le blog d’une fausse société de revente appelée Verbon Services (https://wp.me/p1kmoi-2lh) qui proposait des reventes supposées de multipropriété.

Cette entreprise de cold calling propose une revente pour des montants aussi élevés que 15.000 € +

Une fois que le consommateur a montré son intérêt, la vente a été censément traitée par un bureau de notaire appelé Pedro Morles-Riva

Après avoir placé cet avertissement, il semble que Verbon Services continue ses fausses offres de revente, mais ils ont changé le nom et les détails du «notaire».

Les consommateurs qui ont été appelés à froid et sont intéressés à vendre leur temps partagé, sont maintenant contactés par le bureau de notaire d’Eva-Maria Boluda Lopez.

Boluda Lopez se met rapidement au travail et commence à demander des paiements d’impôts supposés. Et comme les (faux) acheteurs de la multipropriété sont basés au Portugal, la taxe doit être payée sur un compte dans une banque portugaise.

Les coordonnées de ce faux notaire Eva-Maria Boluda Lopez sont:

Calle Sacramento 3, 28005 Madrid

Téléphone: 00 34 615 020 096

Email: boludalopez.notarial@gmail.com

S’il vous plaît noter qu’il n’y a pas une telle revente de temps partagé, et certainement pas de tels frais.

Si vous avez parlé à Verbon Services ou au bureau de notaire d’Eva Maria Boluda Lopez, s’il vous plaît laissez-nous savoir.

Are you dealing with the notary Eva Maria Boluda Lopez for a timeshare resale?

We already notified through the blog about a fake resale company called Verbon Services (https://wp.me/p1kmoi-2lh) who was offering supposed timeshare resales.

This cold calling company would offer a resale for amounts as high as €15.000+

Once the consumer showed his interest, the sale was supposedly handled by a notary office called Pedro Morles-Riva

After placing this warning, it seems that Verbon Services continues their fake resale offers, but they have changed the name and details of the “notary”.

Consumers who have been cold called and are interested in selling their timeshare, are now contacted by the Notary office from Eva-Maria Boluda Lopez.

Boluda Lopez quickly gets down to business and starts to request supposed tax payments. And as the (fake) buyers of the timeshare are based in Portugal, the tax needs to be paid into an account in a Portuguese bank.

Contact details for this fake notary Eva-Maria Boluda Lopez are:

Calle Sacramento 3, 28005 Madrid

Telephone 00 34 615 020 096

Email boludalopez.notarial@gmail.com

Please note that there is no such timeshare resale, and certainly no such charges.

If you have been speaking to Verbon Services or to the notary office from Eva Maria Boluda Lopez, please do let us know.
