For some time now Inside Timeshare has been publishing readers information on Iconel Administration SL, CIF B93705606, a supposed law firm based in Málaga and registered as a company on 8 August 2019. As for the website, so far we have not been able to trace who registered it, when it was registered and when it is due to expire. The links to other dubious “fake law firms” past and present is another area for concern, but it is what they are telling potential clients that is very disturbing.
Inside Timeshare has received a recording of a call being made by Judith Saunders from “Iconel Lawyers” to one of our readers. This reader is very sceptical as they have lost considerable sums in the past to various scams including losing thousands to ABC Lawyers and Mark Rowe, which is the subject of the call.
Our reader did ask some very important questions regarding how they are going to get the money back considering that the company is “bankrupt” according to Judith Saunders. Her reply comes after some hesitation, obviously, she was not expecting to be asked such a direct and important question. Her reply after a long hesitation was, to say the least, plausible but still untrue.
According to Judith Saunders, it is “only one company that has gone bankrupt”, it would not mean anything to our reader as his money has been moved around the various Mark Rowe companies and it is those that Iconel are taking to court.
She even has a slight pop at the UK Police investigating Mark Rowe, claiming they have no idea about Spanish law or have any jurisdiction as they are all Spanish companies. In a sense that is true, many of the companies are registered as Spanish entities but in Tenerife, which would have jurisdiction, not Málaga. It is also a fact that many other branches of Rowes companies are registered in the UK which would then have jurisdiction.
It is also a fact that the Regional Organised Crime Unit of Somerset and Avon Police are working closely with the Tenerife authorities in their investigations into Mark Rowe and his companies. It is also a fact that Mark Rowe is on police bail in the UK.
Another disturbing part of the recording was how Judith Saunders blames the police for allowing Rowe to continue operating despite being under investigation. According to Judith Saunders, Mark Rowe then had time to establish the ABC legal group of companies and more disturbingly ECC, (European Consumer Claims). This is a total fabrication on behalf of Iconel Administration and Judith Saunders.
ECC has nothing to do with Mark Rowe, it is a completely different entity and works alongside and very closely with M1 Legal, which is another of the very few leading and genuine law firms in the field of timeshare law.
Once again, untruths and blatant lies are being used to convince clients to part with substantial sums of money for non-existent court cases and “compensation” which is not even there!
