The Mid Week Report: Platinum Services and Administration SL

Back in October 2018, Inside Timeshare reported on a company going by the name of Litigation Services SL, they were contacting former clients of Incentive Leisure Group (ILG) who marketed Designer Way Vacation Club (DWVC) and members of Club Class. According to Litigation Services, they could get back money paid for these memberships.

Recently a new company has emerged, Platinum Services and Administration SL, Company Registration Number B93650307, with the address Calle Lope de Vega 60 29631 Benalmádena Málaga.

Telephone number: 0034 951122027 and 0034 951122320

The registered Director is named as  Calle Guden Daniel Ernesto who incidentally is also the registered director of Litigation Services SL.

Once again they are targeting ILG / DWVC and Club Class members for a no win no fee claim to get them their money back. One small snag though, there is an upfront commission charge of 10%, so does this mean they already know how much the client “will” be getting back?

There is a website, registered on 14 November 2018 and set to expire on 14 November 2019, not really confidence building. The registrant is Litigation Services SL, so that does lead us to believe they are the same outfit.

It must also be pointed out that it is not a secure site, it is also identical to the website of Litigation Services SL.

http://www.litigationservices.es/

Both websites also show two methods for payment, Klik & Pay and PayXpert.

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.

It is more than likely that Jose Lara Cabello is not even aware that his registration number is being used, as there is no registered company called JLC Legal Services.

So once again we see another new “company” targeting people who had previously dealt with two companies which are no longer in existence, with the promise of getting them their money back. As these companies no longer exist it does make you wonder how they are going to get back the money paid?

As usual, the warning is very simple, before believing anything you are told in a cold call, do your homework. Check the companies out, if you don’t know how then use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will help you do the checks.

Another word of warning is the payment method, even if you use your credit card to make the payment, you will not be covered by Section 75 of the Credit Consumer Act 1974. The two payment methods are considered third-party companies, therefore no direct payment is made to the company offering the service and your card company will not reimburse you when the service is not delivered.

Another Old Name Crops Up

It seems some of the old names are making a come back, the latest is Greenges 2005 SL. These were based in Fuengirola and have not been heard from for around 5 years, this time in a very unusual way.

Inside Timeshare received an enquiry regarding a call they received telling them that their parents had been awarded £24,000 by the courts for a mis sold timeshare in Tenerife. The call came from someone claiming to be from the Ministry of Justice and to verify the fact they should contact Greenges in Spain who he claimed had done the work for the readers parents.

MoJ Spain

According to the caller from the Ministry of Justice, if they did not claim the money within 5 days it would be returned back to the court. This is a very strange fact, as the courts do not work in this way, also the Ministry of Justice is a Government Department and nothing to do with the Judiciary and Courts.

So we can only speculate that the scam will be the usual “Taxes” to release the money, then a fee to pay for the work involved.

Now Greenges 2005 SL is still a registered company with the NIF number B92652288, the registered address is:

Calle San Antonio 22, Edificio San Miguel, 29640 Fuengirola, they also had another address which also comes up on Google as:

Lope de Vega 60,  29631 Arroyo de la Miel, Benalmádena, this address is actually at Los Boliches Fuengirola not Arroyo de la Miel.

Previous telephone numbers are:

Telephone 0034 952 446093 and fax 0034 952561178
Telephone 0034 952 667357 and fax 0034 952 667545

According to the Google ad it is a computer software company, yet we can’t find any website for them.

A past director of the company Sharifi Mahmoud Reza has well known links with the following companies:

Fuengirola Servicios 2002 SL

Key Property Town Advisory (KPTA)

The Justice Group Direct

Another dubious link is the administrator of Ramirez & Ramirez, Fabián Ramirez Marcelo as he also appeared as the administrator of Fuengirola Servicios 2002 SL.

The latest director is named as Daniel Ernesto Calle Guden who was appointed on 21 February 2018.

It must also be remembered,  when they were operating in the past they were posing as a law firm yet their business activity according to the company register included purchase and sale of motor vehicles and food, the provision of all kinds of services such as accounting and financial advice.

So there we have it, the old firms up and running again, this time claiming that money has been awarded and is waiting to be paid out.

If you receive a call or email claiming to be from the Ministry of Justice, or some company appointed by the courts, then you can be sure it is going to be a scam.

Contact Inside Timeshare if you need any help on how to check out any company that contacts you or that you have found on the internet, doing your homework will save you from the scammers in the end.
