Welcome to the start of another week with Inside Timeshare, we begin with another two warnings to consumers. The first is a website called A Spanish Life (ASL) and the second is one we have highlighted before, Litigation Services SL. Both of these are targeting timeshare and holiday club members, both look very suspicious indeed.
We begin first with A Spanish Life, their website:
was registered in 2005, and is due to expire in November this year, the registrant is hidden and is registered in Panama. When it first came to our attention it appeared to be a legitimate information website, with businesses listed offering services such as plumbers, builders, restaurants etc. It now seems to have taken another turn.
In an email received by one of our readers, this was an unsolicited email prohibited under General Data Protection Regulations, it appears the website is touting for business in the area of timeshare claims. The website is very basic and shows three sections, Timeshare, Claim a Refund, Lost Deposit, Claim a refund and Mortgage Floor Clause, Claim a Refund.
In the email and on the website they claim the following:
Timeshare Refund Laws has now changed
The supreme court in Spain has now classed timeshare as a property purchase. Meaning in a lot of cases the contract entered into is not legal and can only be terminated but a refund can be obtained for the full value of the timeshare.
We work with a leading U:K: claims company with offices in Spain that are offering to assess your timeshare, and if you have a claim will process it without any up front fee.
Well, the Supreme Court has not classed timeshare as a property purchase, what it has done is affirm that timeshare is a long term holiday product and is bound by the timeshare laws enacted on 5 January 1999.
The website itself has a form for owners to fill out with the basic information on what they purchased, it makes no mention of who this information will be passed to or the name of the “leading UK claims company” they are working with.
So caution should be exercised if you receive an email such as the one shown or if you come across the website while searching for information on timeshare claims, this is obviously a lead generator and you will not know who they sell your information to!
The next warning again comes from a regular reader of Inside Timeshare, he received an email from a Caroline Anne Hewitson of Litigation Services SL, with the email address:
Again a Gmail free email account not linked to the website.
When checking for the registration of the domain name shows as
Invalid domain name…
We are unable to perform a lookup for www.litigationservices.es. It appears to be an invalid or unsupported domain extension.
And the telephone number:
+44 01905 570862 (Admin 66789) This is a Worcester number.
As we said at the start, this company has come to our attention before, along with another company, Platinum Services and Administration SL.
Litigation Services SL CIF: B93268936 and the registered address:
The director is listed as CALLE GUDEN DANIEL ERNESTO Appointment: 15/10/2014, but another very old familiar name is also listed although he was dismissed on the above date, SHARIFI DADVAR MAHMOUD REZA.
Platinum Services & Administration SL CIF: B93650307 with the address:
The registered Director is named as Calle Guden Daniel Ernesto who incidentally is also the registered director of Litigation Services SL.
The website is:
It was registered on 14 November 2018 and is set to expire on 14 November 2019, with the registrant hidden.
They also both show the name of their supposed lawyer JLC Legal Services, with a registration number from the Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Malaga 6956. There is indeed a lawyer with that registration number by the name of Jose Lara Cabello with the address Av de la Estación 29631 Arroyo de la Miel Benalmádena Costa Málaga. His office is located just opposite the train station in Arroyo de la Miel and has been there for many years. Incidentally, this lawyer was also named by another fraudulent firm called Greenges 2005 SL back in 2014.
Inside Timeshare has emailed several enquiries to this lawyer asking if he is working with these companies, we have never received any reply or acknowledgement of receipt of emails. So Inside Timeshare leaves you the reader to draw your own conclusions!
Now the problem our reader has with the email received from Caroline Anne Hewitson claims that they are working on behalf of Birmingham Crown Court who heard the case, regarding our readers purchase of an EZE Group product. They sent him a detailed document showing his purchase, membership number, date of purchase, the purchase price and also the dates when he paid the deposit and the balance and method of payment.
Caroline claims that the “courts” supplied the details, we know that the courts do not contract third party companies to contact clients or would they pass on details such as those describes above.
One part of the email which caused a very big round of laughter was the following paragraph:
“We realize that you have probably received Countless other calls regarding claiming against EZE Group:….*PLEASE BE WARNED- Some of these calls may be genuine but we do know there are many Fictitious companies preying on Eze Group members..so please be aware and be vigilant!”
Well if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black!
Once again these examples are a stark warning that before engaging with any company that either emails or calls to do your due diligence. If you need any help in checking them out please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will help.
