Today is just a short update on the new “claims” company and JSD Group and the ongoing saga of Anfi and the movement of funds to avoid paying court awarded costs to clients. Yesterday we published the story of yet another “fake” law firm which is part of the long-running fraud we have dubbed Litigious Abogados Family. Inside Timeshare has already received several emails from readers Who have already been contacted by Paloma Abogados, thank goodness we published, one reader was about to transfer around 1000€, when for some reason they decided to search the internet. According to the email it was within half an hour of publishing, this does show how important it is not believing what you are being told over the phone and to do extensive checks first.
We have again heard from several readers who are ex-Club Class members that are being contacted by JSD Group. This time the story is rather different, these readers ended their membership years ago with one reader ending it almost 20 years ago.
It appears now that they are insisting that even though the membership has ended and Club Class is no longer around, that does not stop JSD from making a claim. The question is how is this claim going to be made?
According to the caller that is not a problem, the claim will be made against the bank the money was paid through. They then email a form which the “client” must tick “the box” to allow them to start the process of the claim. Our reader has not and will not be doing so.
At this point no money is asked for, so when does the “sting” appear?
We suspect that JSD will then end up asking for a “processing” fee or some kind of “tax” in order to release the funds. As if that is really going to happen.
To recap on previous articles which can be found on the links below, JSD Group was only registered as a company on 10 March 2020 with the website being registered on 15 March 2020. The director is James Scott Deakin.
As you will see from the links this is a company where we have uncovered some very dubious links, even though the name of James Scott Deakin does not appear connected with any other timeshare scam. But as usual, the people behind these scam operations tend to stick front men as directors to act as stooges. Unfortunately for James Scott Deakin (if that is his real name) as the registered director, he is the one who will go to jail when the authorities finally catch up with them. Somehow, I and our readers don’t really care!
We now move on to Anfi, on 2 July 2020 Inside Timeshare published the article “Uncovered: Anfi Attempts to Avoid Embargoed Accounts”, see link below The story explains how Anfi is using different bank accounts including foreign accounts to hide money from the courts. This has been the subject of many articles and has also been picked up by the Spanish press and television news.
It has also been brought to the attention of the Provincial State Prosecutors Office, who have launched a very thorough investigation. This may also lead to criminal charges being brought.
The story has now been picked up and published by El Diario a prominent Spanish Daily, no doubt it will be picked up by many more and by television news.
