Today Inside Timeshare brings you news on more “bogus law firms, exit & claims” companies being identified, we also bring you a further update on the name of a genuine law firm whose name is being used by fraudsters. As usual, timeshare owners are being targeted with bogus information designed to scare them into paying huge amounts to these scammers.
We begin with an update on Scudamore Law, a genuine law firm with offices in London, Madrid and Almeria. This law firm is operated by a genuine lawyer Jeremy Scudamore, who is also a registered Barrister in the UK.
The FAKE firm, uses the name Scudamore Law Services, with the email addresses:
They have however now added a slight change to the email address:
It is still a free Gmail account and not linked to any website, they also do not show any telephone numbers.
The email begins with the introduction using a new name:
My Name is Karen Pontin
I work for “Scudamore Law Services” we are a highly respected claims management company.
We specialise in Spanish law and our advice is delivered in English.
We were established in 1997 and for more than 20 years we have been dedicated to offering the highest quality representation and advice. Our mission is to provide high-quality, cost-effective services delivered to British standards of professionalism, with excellent client communication.
As before they are targeting those who purchased from Eze Group, as with the previous email, there is a sense of urgency attached to lure you the unsuspecting “victim” into their trap.
There happens to be a cutoff date to get your claim lodged and processed, that date is 29 April 2021 which happens to be today!
As with the previous emails received by our readers they state in bold block capitals and in red:
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT HERE TO CHEAT ANYONE OR ARE WE ASSOCIATED WITH ANYONE RIPPING PEOPLE OFF…WE CHARGE A FAIR PRICE MOST PROBABLY THE BEST YOU WILL FIND*
Well, they are not there to cheat anyone, it does not look like that is a true statement to Inside Timeshare and it is very doubtful that a genuine law firm would use that paragraph in any letter or email. It is also a fact that a genuine law firm would not be sending out unsolicited emails or letters touting for business, that is not only against General Data Protection Regulations it is also illegal for any law firm or lawyer to tout for business in this way.
Once again, Inside Timeshare has been in contact with Jeremey Scudamore with the latest information. Jeremy has informed Inside Timeshare that he has already filed a denuncia (official report) with the authorities and will add the latest information.
The genuine law firms contact details and website are:
Email: [email protected]
Telephone UK: +44 207 097 5550
Telephone Spain: +34 915 939 126
Address: Plaza de Castilla 3 – 15º E2 28046 Madrid
If you receive any correspondence from a firm purporting to be Scudamore Law Services, please use our contact page and let us know, we also ask that you contact the genuine law firm Scudamore Law on the details above.

We now move to another “firm” contacting timeshare owners with offers of “terminating” their contract and claiming “compensation”.
This firm is J & A Resolutions and there is some rather interesting information on them.
They have a website:
Which was registered on 1 March 2020 and is due to expire on 1 March 2022, again the registrant’s name is not available.
They are using the email addresses:
And the telephone number: 01202 025286
The company was registered on 10 January 2020, but the most interesting fact is that a “Compulsory order to strike them off” has been issued.
So it is blatantly obvious that this is a scam.

We have not yet identified any website for this company but we have found them in Spanish company records. The details are as follows:
Registered on: 28 June 2018
With the address: C/ Acero 6 29100 – (Coin) – Málaga
The registered Administrator is named Mariella Gomez Kantuta.
This company is also linked to several other including one which has been heard of in the past, Victoria Legal Services SL with the same director, The company details are:
Registered on 7 February 2018 with the address:
Both of these companies are registered as Real Estate or Similar, so nothing to do with law or timeshare claims.

So again it is very important for all timeshare owners to be very wary of cold calls, unsolicited emails and post, as not all callers are genuine. If you have received any communication from any company regarding timeshare or timeshare related firms you have dealt with in the past and would like to know if they are genuine or just scammers, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.
REMEMBER, DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE ENGAGING WITH ANY FIRM THAT CONTACTS YOU OR YOU FIND ON THE INTERNET.
