Breaking News! Eze group directors sentenced to 46 months for timeshare ‘leisure credit’ scam!

How many victims of Eze group have been waiting for this news!

Following an investigation by the National Trading Standards Regional Investigation Team Central England, Dominic O’Reilly (55) of Costa Adeje, Tenerife was sentenced to a total of 28 months imprisonment and his step-daughter, Stephanie O’Reilly (30) of Dickens Heath, Solihull was sentenced to a total of 18 months imprisonment, suspended for 2 years, for their part in a timeshare ‘leisure credit’ scam.

Both were also banned from becoming company directors for nine and six years respectively.

Last November, Dominic O’Reilly and Stephanie O’Reilly had pleaded guilty to offences under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 relating to misrepresentation regarding the selling of “Leisure Credits” or ‘Concierge Services”, a so-called holiday and lifestyle product, as well as connected purported legal assistance to timeshare owners.

The court heard evidence relating to 36 victims who had paid out nearly £205,000 to Eze on contracts valued at over £422,000. However, within the paperwork seized by Trading Standards were files relating to over 100 further complainants who had been sold contract worth approximately £1.3m and papers indicated that there were many thousands of consumers in total who had signed up to the Eze Group.

In sentencing the defendants, HHJ Creed said that the pair had used ‘oppressive, aggressive and highly manipulative sales practices’ and that the victims had been ‘bullied and frightened’ causing them ‘enormous distress and anxiety’. He further stated that the pair had gone to ‘considerable efforts to circumvent regulations designed to protect consumers’ and that there were many consumers affected over and above those on the indictment. Of real concern to the court was the fact that the practices had continued after Trading Standards had got involved and interviewed Stephanie O’Reilly.

EZE has a history of issuing threats and commencing defamation actions against those that have published information suggesting they have breached Consumer Protection Regulations, using law firm Pinder Reaux which in our case resulted in a default judgement as there was simply no money to defend ourselves in the UK courts.

PLEASE BE AWARE that there seems to be different dubious cold calling companies who are right now targeting Eze members, offering them a compensation claim based on this sentence. Eze consumers receive a call from different companies informing them that they can get the money back that they lost to Eze Group. The consumer is then asked for an upfront payment of around £1,000 for ‘legal fees’ or ‘taxes’.

Please note that this is just another scam, and you should not fall for this!

If you paid to Eze group in the past 6 years, using a credit card, you are still on time to do a consumer act claim and we can help you with clear guidelines on how to do such claim.

If you have been contacted about recovering the money or you have any other questions, please let us know.

Timeshare Cold Callers March 2019

Dear Timeshare Consumers,

The latest cold caller list for March 2019 is ready and we have counted a total of 56 cold calling companies.

Among the 56 cold callers we included the 11 new company names that were brought to our attention throughout the month.

For the complete list of cold callers, please click on the following link:

Cold Callers March 2019

The 11 names of the new companies are;

  • Egerton Advisory
  • Litiga La & Lo Group S.A.
  • Legal Asset
  • LitigaLa Grupo LO S.A
  • O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions S
  • Procuradores Imdenise – Alberto Imdenise
  • Queens Vac Ltd
  • Refunds Direct
  • SASL European Services
  • Sovereign and Partners
  • TLS Consultancy and Litigation

More and more we see cold calls from companies who are (mis) using the name of genuine companies in order to mislead consumers when they are trying to do research.

Please stick to your common sense and remember that cold calls are not trustworthy, your private and personal details are not open to the public, and using your personal details for cold calls is illegal.

There are no court claims running where you can just “join in”, there are no monies awarded at Spanish courts and by paying the legal fees or procurator fees the money will be deposited in your bank account…

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

When you are cold called, for as reasonable they may sound, take note of their number, the name of the company, their details and ask for information by email.

Let us know about the call and we can give you more information or do research on the company in case it is a new one.

Thanks as always for all the information and emails we received throughout the month from consumers who were alert on the cold calls and provided us with valuable information so we could warn others!

Beware of FAKE procurators called Alberto Imdenise or Procuradores Imdenise.

It’s that time of the month again where the group of fake and fraudulent lawyers come up with the new names in order to avoid bad publicity for the company names used so far.

This time they seem to be sticking to LitigaLa or Litigalo for the initial contact but the name of the procurator has changed and latest one is Imdenise Procuradores.

Well procurator…. the name is for the bank account holder and to disguise this is an individual, they give this person the role of procurator.

So this time an Alberto Imdenise is providing his account number and getting involved in this scam.

The website set up for this purpose is www.procuradores-imdenise.com

Registered on the 13th of March 2019

Contact details as per web:

Email: procuradores-imdenise@europe.com

Address: Calle Dorazno 11, Edificio Corala, Oficina 231C, 38002, Santa Cruz, Tenerife.

No telephone number as usual.

The procurator is introduced to the potential victims of this fraudulent set up after assuring them there is a court claim going through a Tenerife courthouse, and money will be awarded.

The claim is on a NO WIN NO FEE basis but once the money has been awarded in the court there is a procurator fee to be paid.

Strange enough this cannot be deducted from the awarded amount and needs to be paid upfront.

What can we say that we haven’t explained already?

Have a look at the range of blog warnings we have so far: https://mindtimeshare.me/category/tenerife/fake-lawyers-tenerife/

Please make sure you don’t fall into this trap.

If you received any phone call about a court claim please let us know. Cold callers do not announce Court claims!

You can fill in the CONTACT form or send a direct email to customercare@mindtimeshare.com

European Consumer Claims, a new company or not that new?

This week we have started to receive inquiries about a company called European Consumers Claims.

First it looked like people got the name wrong, then we thought it was a new company and then we realized that no, they are not that new at all.

The company European Consumers Claims is certainly not new, and it is just a matter of changing words as up till now they used to call themselves European Claims Centre or European Claims Chamber.

The fact that yet again they are changing their name seems to be a very strange development.

It doesn’t really seem to be logical that a company, who supposedly work hard to get their brand name out there and  build up a good reputation, then changes their name to start all over again.

Unless the reputation is not that good and feedback online is negative.

You certainly don’t want your new and potential customers to read this…

European Claims Centre changed their name into European Consumers Claims with the Companies House last year April. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10243428/officers

It only has been recently though when they have started to use this name with the actual consumers.

The director mentioned is Mr. Andrew Charles Cooper, who was also director of many other companies mentioned on this blog such as Bridge View Consultants, Club Class Concierge, etc.

Years ago the company ECC was actually called ITRA (International Timeshare Refund Action). http://wp.me/p1kmoi-em

Recently the High court in the UK has wound up ITRA. (https://wp.me/p1kmoi-3nu)

ITRA hit the British press many times before the wound up and in the following article you can read how they were working: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/trapped-timeshare-owners-unwanted-weeks-13431301

On the picture in this article you can see Mr. Andy Cooper, who is the same person mentioned as director of European Consumers Claims at Companies House.

For as much as the company ECC wants to appear “independent” from all the above mentioned names, and the staff telling consumers they haven’t got anything to do with ITRA or Club Class Group, the records of company house registration do not lie.

If you are speaking to ECC about a possible claim against your resort, ask yourself why a company who claims to be reputable and successful doesn’t stop changing names.

For as knowledgeable the staff may sound at their meeting, keep in mind you are not talking to their lawyers

Even after sitting through a meeting of hours and hours, no lawyer has seen a glimpse of your paperwork when they start asking you for money.

If you are interested in a possible claim against your resort, remember that only a genuine Lawyer can assess your claim, and you don’t need to exit the timeshare before claiming.

Do your homework, get the facts right, get a professional assessment, and then you decide if you want to go ahead…and up till that moment, don’t pay a penny!

Have you received a call from O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions?

A new and very active cold caller has been brought to our attention by the name of O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions.

The agent “David” and “Amber” from O1C Solutions seem to be targeting for the moment all consumers who previously purchased a Club Class Membership.

The Consumer is informed by O1C Solutions that they are still a member from Club Class and unpaid membership fees, which have built up to a substantial amount.

This debt has to be paid now, or the consumer faces legal recovery proceedings in a Spanish court.

Luckily O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions can help out as they are offering legal services.

Cold callers are never a good starting point, but when they also offer legal services it seems rather strange.

So we did a bit of research on this new company.

Their website www.o1csolutions.com was set up in January 2019.

The web is only available in English and they only have an English contact number.

They point out that the company is registered at the Spanish companies house, which indeed they are, and which indicates they company address is in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol.

Company registration was done at the end of February 2019, which means that right now they have been active for 3 weeks. (http://www.infocif.es/ficha-empresa/o1c-leisure-and-legal-solutions-sl)

Not the 30 years of experience they claim to have on their website!

Unless they had a different company name…

Contact details for O1C Leisure and Legal Solution are:

Telephone number: +(44) 2039185945

Email:info@o1csolutions.com

If O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions have contacted you as well about your Club Class membership or any other matter from the past, please do let us know.

You can CONTACT US through the web or send us an email to customercare@mindtimeshare.com

LitigaLa Grupo LO S.A, the latest version of Litigalo or LitigaLaw

They are either running out of creativity or names, but the latest creation of the Fake and Fraudulent Lawyers in Tenerife is called LitigaLa Grupo LO S.A

Different name, same scam, same fraudsters.

LitigaLa Grupo LO S.A is using still the same contact details as Litigalo:

Names mentioned of the supposed staff taking care of the preparation of the documents for the upcoming hearings are a Mr. Daniel Bames and Manuel Olbas Vinillos.

Follow up email is signed by María Álvarez Fernández.

Sad enough there are still consumers falling for this scam, and a lot of people are actually quiet taken in by the callers from this fake set up.

Often the question arises about “what is the catch? It is a no win no fee?”

Well it isn’t and anyway, they are NOT lawyers, there is no claim, there is nothing!

Once they have the consumer’s confidence, they announce the court claim has been heard, money has been awarded and all you need to do is pay the procurator fee.

And from there on the requests for money won’t stop until the consumer realizes it is a scam, after having paid substantial amounts over and over again.

DO NOT PAY THEM!
