Start the Week: Catching Up with the News

Welcome to the start of another week with Inside Timeshare, after a week away we have unfortunately missed some very important news. Today we have a quick look at the latest developments, we also issue yet another warning of a scam operation targeting Eze Group clients using the name of another genuine law firm. The using of the names of genuine law firms is causing not only the consumers themselves problems, it also has a very detrimental effect on the genuine law firm.

We begin with the latest scam using the name of a genuine law firm, Scudamore Law who have offices in the London, Madrid and Almeria. Their website is:

https://www.scudamorelaw.com/

This morning Inside Timeshare contacted Jeremy Scudamore at his Madrid office with the information so far received, he informed Inside Timeshare that this is not the first time his company name has been used in this type of scam. His law firm has been operating for many years and has a good reputation, they have no involvement with any claims regarding timeshare or working on behalf of the courts in this area.

All information we have so far has been passed to Scudamore Law.

The email received by our reader was an unsolicited email, which is illegal under Data Protection Regulations, they use 2 email addresses:

[email protected]

[email protected]

As you can see, the email address is a free gmail service that is not used by the genuine law firm Scudamore Law.

The email itself which is signed by Georgina Bailey, contains the usual information that they are working on behalf of the Courts in Madrid from lists of Eze Group clients being held by the court. As we know the courts do not use or contract third parties for contacting potential victims of fraud, we also know they are not holding any funds seized from Eze Group or associated companies.

What we did find rather amusing was this extract from the email found about halfway down:

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*

***WE GUARANTEE YOUR REFUND 100%***

So the scammers are claiming they are not there to cheat anyone or “ripping people off”, well it certainly looks like they are!

So once again we have to urge all our readers to be very careful when dealing with any cold call or email claiming that you have a claim or that the courts are holding money that you are due. Look carefully at the email addresses, are they free email providers, does the email address connect to a firms website or is it slightly different from the one on their website? These are usually good signs that a scam is being perpetrated.

We now move to the news from the US and the Hilton purchase of Diamond Resorts, this piece of news has taken many by surprise and is still being analysed as to how it may affect Diamond members.

As we know Apollo Global Management purchased Diamond Resorts in 2016 for $2.2 billion, Hilton is reported to have paid just $1.4 billion!

Quite a reduction in price.

Links to the original Apollo buyout and the latest on the Hilton purchase.

In another story, this time it revolves around the founder and former CEO of Diamond Resorts, Stephen J Cloobeck. It seems that he himself has been taken in by a “confidence trickster”, who he claims “conned” him out of $1.3million worth of gifts.

Stephen J Cloobeck, Founder & Former CEO of Diamond Resorts

Nice to know he has been “done” and to be honest do we really care?

He is not the first to be taken in by a younger rather attractive girl, lavishing money on them as though there was no tomorrow.

According to reports Cloobeck was totally infatuated with her and ‘spent nearly every waking moment with’ the young model and splurged to buy her jewellery, lavish parties, private jet trips as well as paying her lease for a luxury apartment in Beverly Hills.

Well, I think there will be many Diamond victims who will be taking great pleasure in his demise, the full report as published in the UK press is below.
