Global Timeshare Legal Experts

Another company and website have come to the attention of Inside Timeshare, Global Timeshare Legal Experts, which are based in Dubai. Once again the claims made by this website do not appear credible at all just due to the fact of how long the website has been operating.

The website

was only registered on 8 May 2019 so is only just about 8 months old and is also due to expire on 8 May 2020. The owner of the website is also hidden through the use of a privacy protection company. As we often say these two factors should always sound the alarm bells.

The company itself is in Dubai with the address:

Suite 1901 Level 19 Boulevard Plaza Tower 1 Downtown Dubai UAE

The company has not shown on any company registration either in Dubai or elsewhere.

Telephone: +971 52 877 6964 (This is a Dubai mobile number)

Email: i[email protected]

According to the website they have won 600 cases and 120 Supreme Court rulings, they also claim that they have 16 specialists working for them, yet no mention of who they are. Well, all we can say to this is very impressive for a company that appears to be less than a year old and we know for a fact that Supreme Court cases are never going to happen that quick. We also know that there is only one firm law firm that has achieved any Supreme Court victories with 130 to date.

While checking over their website the Latest News section shows several cases against Anfi, Club la Costa and Silverpoint, which they are claiming to be their own clients. The problem is these are the very same news items that have appeared on the Canarian Legal Alliance website and have been confirmed to belong to cases brought on behalf of clients of Canarian Legal Alliance. Obviously just a cut and paste job.

The other point to their claim that these are their clients are the dates, for example in the link below the date given for this case is 1 February 2018, over one year before the company or website appears! Inside Timeshare leaves you to draw your own conclusions on that.

We have already identified one name associated with this company, Robert Saric, according to part of the contract (German Client) produced below he is based in Gran Canaria.

So Robert Saric with his company and website is attempting to entice timeshare owners to sign up for cases on the back of false claims in their news section which have basically been cut & pasted from another company. This is certainly a case of deception which timeshare owners do need to be aware of.

Robert Saric

Another name that has come to our attention is a gentleman called Herr Jansen, we have been informed that Jansen is working with Saric who apparently is his boss, but we also know that Jansen is taking on clients for legal action against their timeshare resorts.

From other information we have received he claims that he is overseeing the claims and working with Canarian Legal Alliance, having checked with CLA they have denied any knowledge of this person either working with them or passing on clients.

We have also been informed that Jansen has been in contact with a client of CLA and quoted 15,000€ for the legal fees when the cost of his case through CLA is only 6,500€!

We have also been informed that Jansen is also using CLA cases as his own.

According to emails received by our readers, Jansen is working with a company called Businex which according to their website and web registration details belongs to a company called Heidital Consultancy Ltd.

Businex is an internet marketing outsourcing company, so the question is why is Jansen using their address and email as they do not show any sign of being involved in timeshare litigation or claims?

Address on Jansens Email:

48 Burj Gate Sofitel Hotel Downtown Business Tower 7th Floor P.O. Box 8867 Dubai United Arab Emirates

The email also shows the same telephone number as the Businex website which is a UK number with a Northampton code: +441604300037

Email: [email protected]

The bank details which Jansen has sent for clients to pay which is the Noor Islamic Bank are:

FIRMENNAMEN: SOCIAL BUSINESS AND CONSULTING FZE

BANK: NOOR BANK

BANKADRESSE: DUBAI MALL BRANCH

IBAN: AE39 0520 0015 10770240037

SWIFT: NISLAEAD

One thing that is very certain both of these look extremely dodgy to us at Inside Timeshare, we have been in contact with CLA and they have asked that we publish the following statement.

If you have been contacted, signed up and paid any money to either of these companies or individuals to contact CLA, they will review your case against them and represent you free of charge in retrieving your money.

You can contact CLA via the contact page on their website or

Start the Week

December is now upon us and the courts will be having a last flurry of cases before the Christmas break. It is also the time of year when maintenance bills are being received and with this, there will be an increase in calls offering termination of your contracts. It is also the time when those who paid for these services will find that their timeshare has not been terminated and they are still liable for the maintenance fees. Inside Timeshare has been receiving many more enquiries regarding this and one of the main complaints is about ABC Legal.

As we published last week the story of two of our readers who are now being chased by a debt collection agency hired by ABC Legal and Mark Rowe, CCI Credit Management Ltd. We have since heard from another reader who is also being chased by them for payment of the fees to terminate their timeshare.

The timeshares have not been terminated by the timeshare company despite the protestations of ABC Legal that they have been. Our reader has demanded written official proof from ABC Legal to show that they did engage with the timeshare company and terminate the contract legally and formerly. Nothing has been forthcoming.

In each case, the letters demanding the clients pay ABC Legal Ltd, Abc Lawyers Ltd (both of these are in liquidation) or Advanced Business Consultants SL for the termination services has the following paragraph:

b) receipt by you of a letter from us stating that we consider that, in all of the circumstances, including the legal context and any legal notices served, that the Resort Owner is likely to treat the Timeshare Contract in effect as if it had been terminated (though in fact it has not been formally terminated) and that in our opinion the Resort Owner is unlikely to take any legal action against you. 

This paragraph is very contradictory, on the one hand they say the client will receive a letter from ABC that they consider the contract terminated, then they actually state in brackets that “though in fact it has not been formally terminated”. So the question is if it is not formally terminated how can it be terminated?

Surely the timeshare company would write to the member on official company letters that the timeshare is terminated and that the member should return all membership certificates?

The next telling part to show that ABC (Mark Rowe) does not, in fact, terminate contracts but rather tells the client to just stop paying the maintenance, that the timeshare company is “Unlikely in their opinion (ABC) to take legal action for any arrears”.

Well, we do know for the most part that this is untrue, many timeshare companies will chase for arrears in maintenance, most will not deal with companies such as these for termination. They will, however, deal direct with the member.

To us, at Inside Timeshare, this is blatant bullying by a company and owner who is well known for fleecing unsuspecting timeshare owners of their hard-earned cash. If you have dealt with any company such as this then please contact Inside Timeshare and we will point you in the right direction.

News also came in late on Friday that a German client of Canarian Legal Alliance has now received a payout from Anfi into their account. They have now received 27,753.96€ plus legal fees and legal interest, their contract was also declared null and void, so another happy ex-Anfi owner.

Did you purchase your timeshare after 5 January 1999, did you pay any deposit within the 14 days cooling-off period, is the contract for a duration in excess of 50 years, does it contain floating weeks or points or is a fractional or company participation scheme?

If you can say yes to one or more of these, then you may have an illegal contract and have the right to make a claim, then please use our contact page for more information on this or any other timeshare matter.

What a Cheek: ABC Legal Sends in Debt Collectors to Clients

Well, we thought we had seen everything until now, it appears that the “scammers” are now sending in the debt collectors to clients who wanted to cancel and refuse to pay or have not paid because they do not believe their timeshare contracts have been terminated. ABC Legal is the company involved and yes, it is the “crook” Mark Rowe who is once again behind it. Also, remember that Mark Rowe and several of his other companies are under criminal investigation in the UK and Spain.

Over the past few weeks Inside Timeshare has been receiving many emails on this subject. The first few were all clients who decided they wanted to cancel the services to terminate their timeshare because they felt pressured into signing and subsequently found some very disturbing news on the internet. Yet now they are being bullied into paying with threats of legal action and County Court Judgements.

Mark Rowe

The latest involves two clients who had taken on the services of ABC Legal or one of the other Mark Rowe companies, Advanced Business Consultants Legal SL and ABC Lawyers Ltd.

Both were sent letters on ABC Legalheaded paper telling them that their timeshare contracts had been terminated, both asked for proof as they had not heard anything from their respective resorts. Plus they are receiving demands for past maintenance fees and for next year.

ABC Legal refused to send any written evidence that the contracts had been formerly terminated. All they have done is refer the clients to this clause in their contract:

To clarify, by “Exit” we mean one of two things:

a) an agreement with the Resort Owner under which your Timeshare Contract is terminated on terms you approve in advance; OR 

b) receipt by you of a letter from us stating that we consider that, in all of the circumstances, including the legal context and any legal notices served, that the Resort Owner is likely to treat the Timeshare Contract in effect as if it had been terminated (though in fact it has not been formally terminated) and that in our opinion the Resort Owner is unlikely to take any legal action against you. 

Both (Name of Resort) and (Name of Resort) have failed to engage or respond to the legal notices served.

Now there is a very telling point in the second clause:

(though in fact, it has not been formally terminated) and that in our opinion the Resort Owner is unlikely to take any legal action against you.

They actually admit that the contract has not been “formerlly terminated”, that the resorts failed to engage or respond to legal notices served.

The question is what “Legal Notices”?

As we have pointed out on many occasions, most timeshare companies will not engage with or recognise these third party terminations, they will deal directly with the member only. It is also a fact that timeshare companies will pursue owners/members for arrears in maintenance fees. Many of these companies will use the services of Daniels Silverman based in Liverpool, this is the prefered choice of Diamond.

The debt collection agency employed by ABC Legal is CCI Credit Management Ltd, The CCICM Centre Snowdonia Business Park Portmadog.

It is also a fact that ABC Legal and ABC lawyers are in liquidation, with ABC Legal filling on 8 February 2019 and ABC Lawyers also on 8 February 2019.

So another question has to be asked, how can companies in liquidation employ a debt collection agency to recover unpaid invoices for them?

If anyone out there knows a good answer I would love to hear it.

So there we have it, the “Scammers” are still at it but trying to use legal means. One thing we can say to Mark Rowe, you certainly know how to rip people off.

We all hope that you end up getting your just deserts and are thrown into prison for a substantial time just for all the misery that you have heaped on the unsuspecting.

If you have been contacted by CCI Credit Management Ltd or have had dealings with any of these companies and are still receiving your maintenance bills, then please use our contact page and get in touch.
