Over the past few months Inside Timeshare has been following the various “fake” law firms operating out of Malaga and targeting former clients of Eze Group. All have the same story, there are substantial funds being held by the Malaga courts seized from a recent trial of Eze Group. For a fee which ranges from 600€ to 2,400€, they can have this money released to your own account. First, we bring you an update on another “fake” firm JSD Group.
Inside Timeshare first reported about this “company” on 10 June and again on 17 June, it does not make good reading. It becomes very apparent that this company has been set up with the sole purpose of depriving unsuspecting timeshare owners of thousands.
The latest email from one lucky reader shows how careful you must be, they received a cold call from someone representing JSD Group informing them they could get a full “refund” for their timeshare. The cost is only 600€.
Our reader informed them they had not owned the timeshare since 2000, that is 20 years ago! Not to worry about that, said the caller, you can still claim the refund.
So who is going to pay the money?
It is also a fact that the purchase of the timeshare was well before the current timeshare laws were put into place on 5 January 1999, so the contracts are not illegal as they do not come under the new laws so could not have even been taken to court.

We now move to the latest “fake” law firm to come to our attention, Morales Maxwell, located at:
We have located a website for a Morales Maxwell:
The website was registered on 25 November 2019 and is due to expire on 25 November 2020, so once again we have a website for a “law” firm registered for only 1 year!
The website itself shows no company details such as company registration numbers, lawyers names or bar association registrations. Our searches have not revealed any company records either in Spain or the UK.
Once again the story is the same as the others, the courts in Malaga have seized assets (vast sums of money) after a recent trial of Eze Group. Morales Maxwell has been charged by the courts to contact Eze Group clients to facilitate the return of in this case over £20,000!
Of course, this is not done for free, in order to get the funds released by the court the client has to pay £2,400 first!
As for the supposed trial, Inside Timeshare is not aware of any trial being held in Spain especially in Malaga against Eze Group. We do know that there was a trial held at Birmingham Crown Court where the O’Reilly’s were convicted. We also know that no money was seized by the cour but an investigation under the Proceeds of Crime Act was launched, As far as we know that is still ongoing.
Have you been contacted by either of these companies or any company with a similar story, if so please use our contact page and let Inside Timeshare know? It is your information that will help others to be aware of the potential scams that are emerging.
