Welcome to the start of another week with Inside Timeshare, just for a change, this weekend has been rather quiet with very few emails being received and no new “dubious” law firms or claims companies coming to light. Once again the emails we have received feature the same old names we have been publishing over the past few weeks such as Torcaz Abogados, JSD Group and Morales and Maxwell. All with the same wonderful news that the client has a substantial amount of money waiting for them in the courts, but as usual you must pay them first to release the money. You can see all the articles on JSD, Morales and Torcaz on the links below.
Having a look around the internet this morning at some of the other websites and forums, we could not help but notice the mindtimeshare website. They have still not published any new blog since 14 November 2019, this is highly unusual for mindtimeshare.
We do know that once Alberto Garcia was removed and they lost their funding from the RDO things have not gone well for them and they apparently reverted to using their own data to pass clients to other companies in order to survive. We just wonder if this is a sign that we may just have heard the last of mindtimeshare?
This case once again involved illegal contracts containing a duration of more than 50 years and was using the “floating weeks” system. The companies were also fined for the illegal taking of deposits within the statutory 14 days cooling-off period.
The original purchase price was around 70,000€ with the penalty payments this has been increased to 103,793.51€, that is almost 34,000€ more than what they originally paid. The court also awarded legal interest and declared the contract null and void.
The case was brought on behalf of the client by Canarian Legal Alliance with the original consultant being Lotta Nielsen and the two lawyers conducting the case being Eva Gutiérrez and Oscar Ojeda Suárez.
So we have one very happy ex-Anfi timeshare owner and a very happy successful legal team. Congratulations to you all.
