It seems that every day another new company appears and has begun cold calling timeshare owners claiming they can get them “compensation”. Today Inside Timeshare has received two emails from anxious owners who have been contacted by a company based in Tenerife called Demi-Guni SL. Once again the pitch is to scare the timeshare owners into signing up with them immediately. Although Inside Timeshare usually waits to complete our research, due to receiving emails within hours of each other we are publishing our preliminary findings in order to warn our readers.
Demi-Guni SL or as their website is called Consult Demi-Guni SL is a company registered in Spain. Although this does not mean that they are legitimate.
The company was registered around 9 years ago and according to their company record, their field of business is “Team Leasing”, whatever that means. The Registered director is Alfons Nicolas Jose Dekeijer and he is the sole partner.
Was only registered on 13 May 2020 and is due to expire on 13 May 2021, so again a “claims” company registered for only 1 year, so alarm bells are ringing.
According to their website under “Our Lawyer” they work with Ruben Perez, the website we have found is
According to the text about Rubén Perez on the Demi-Guni website:
“The lawyer we are partnered with, Rubén Padron, is a respected member of the law community in the Canary Islands and Spain. He is the founder and owner of Servicios Juridicos Especializados and specialises in pursuing civil cases which involve companies which have declared insolvency.”
As you can see they claim he is the founder and owner of Servicios Juridicos Especializados, on searching this we have found one, this is a firm in Mexico and is a leading law firm in Monterrey and not in Tenerife. So again alarm bells are ringing.
We have made a search for a lawyer going by this name, and so far nothing has come up apart from one called Ruben Padron Perez. The other point is the one we have found has a different address and telephone number to the ones on the website, so we can assume that it is not the same one.
The “lawyers” website when checking the details does not give any information on the date of registration or who registered it. In fact, using whois.com this is what appears:
“It appears to be an invalid or unsupported domain extension.”
Again not very confidence building!
Both our readers have told the same story, the caller explaining that there are “deadlines” to get a case in court. Obviously this is to pressure the timeshare owner to sign up immediately, do you remember this technique when you first purchased, “this offer is only available today and today only”?
The addresses and telephone numbers for Demi-Guni SL and Rubén Perez are:
Telephone: 0034 658 155 811 a Spanish mobile number
Email: [email protected]
The email for Perez is [email protected] which is a free Gmail account and not linked to the website which you would expect. Again this leads us to believe that this is yet another “fake” lawyer or possibly a case of stolen identity.
Once again this is a very good example that you must do extensive checks before engaging with any “claims” company or “law firm” that contacts you regarding getting out of your timeshare and getting any money back.
If you have been contacted by Demi-Guni SL or any other company and you would like to check if they are genuine or not, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will help you to investigate them.
REMEMBER, DOING YOUR HOMEWORK WILL SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE END!
