Start the Week: JSD Group Update & Latest Anfi Defeat

Welcome to the start of another week with Inside Timeshare, as usual over the weekend many more emails have been received from readers on the articles that have been published. Some with new information and others just to say that they have also been called and thanks to the articles they have not been taken in by them. We begin today with one such article and also bring you the news of another defeat for Anfi.

We begin today with an update on JSD Group Ltd, this company was registered on 10 March 2020, so it is only just 7 months old, yet according to their website testimonials they have many “very happy” clients who have got their money back. Not bad for a new company and a website that was only registered on 15 March 2020.

The director is Scott James Deakin, he is the sole director, but that does not mean to say he is the actual person behind it all. He could just be a frontman, we have found this with many of these companies. According to one of our sources, a Scott James Deakin claims that his identity has been “stolen” and that he is in fact working in Thailand selling timeshare. As yet this has not been confirmed.

The main gist of these latest calls have actually nothing to do with timeshare claims, the calls are about “solar panels”. It just so happens that our readers have also been contacted by them regarding their timeshare and making a claim. Now the same company is calling them about solar panels!

So at least our readers were already warned about this company and have declined any further contact.

Below are links to the first article and the many updates published.

Late on Friday, news came in of the latest defeat for Anfi Sales SL and Anfi Resorts SL, in this case, it is yet another where the judge has decided that a full trial is not necessary, issuing his sentence at the pre-trial stage.

The Swiss client’s case was accepted by the Court of First Instance Number 3 of San Bartelomé de Tirajana in October 2019 with the case listed for trial in March 2020. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the trial was suspended as the lockdown came into effect.

When the courts resumed the Judge who had sat on many of these cases involving Anfi decided that the case was cut and dried and the need for a full trial was not required. We have been seeing this happen to an increasing number of cases, all we can say is the judges obviously have had enough and to save time and also cut the workload of the courts.

The client’s contract was again declared null and void and the client was awarded over 50,000€ plus legal interest.

The case was brought on behalf of the client by Canarian Legal Alliance with the lawyer Eva Gutierrez representing the client in court and the Claims Consultant Jasmin Erhard assisting the client.

No doubt Anfi will do their usual thing and lodge an appeal to drag everything out and attempt to delay any payments, but, as we have seen from all the other appeals, it will cost them, even more, when the High Court dismisses the appeal.

If you have been contacted by any company and would like to know if they are genuine, or if you would like to know if you have a valid and viable case against your timeshare resort, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.

    I am being bombarded with companies claiming to get me out of Anfi contract and claim back money for upfront fee.. i know i was missold as i have had deposits taken x2 at least and i have had 3 contracts the last at Gran with a 50 year clause. I have full evidence of these and i want to know who to trust to proceed. I have spent quite a lot of money in Anfi approx £28,000 not including deposits.
