Hellenic Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Monster Clients Targeted

At the start of this year Inside Timeshare published an article on the latest scam which was then targeting Eze Group clients, only this was not coming from Spain but Greece. Clients were being contacted supposedly by The Hellenic Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, well, they seem to have switched their targets, it is now clients of companies owned and operated by Mark Rowe.

The scam is just as before, the clients are contacted by an unsolicited email claiming their case which is part of a “Class Action Lawsuit”. According to the email which from Panagiotis Chatzitheofanos, another familiar name and is signed by none other than Stavros Mpotsari who we have already mentioned in the previous articles, the case was originally heard in another “European member” state, where the “initial crime” took place. But unfortunately, the assets had already been moved so there was no “compensation” for the claimants.

The email address being used is [email protected]

Now for the good news, thanks to the “tenacity” of the lawyer who worked on this clients behalf he found a link between several new companies formed in Greece. We just wonder who the lawyer is?

Well, our guess is it is yet another name linked to Hellenic Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs and dubious companies in Spain, namely Platinum Services and Administration SL, Litigation Services SL and a name from the past Greenges 2005 SL. All are using the name of Jose Lara Cabello, who we do know is a lawyer registered with the Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Málaga.

Inside Timeshare has in the past published his name, emails have been sent to him to verify if he is aware that his name is being used or if he is working with these companies, no reply has ever been received. Again Inside Timeshare leaves you the reader to draw your own conclusions.

With the email, there was also an “official court summary” with English translation, which begins with “The Honourable High Judge Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos sited at court room 1a of the Court of Cassation, chosen by the Cabinet of the Council of State under the Articles 87-100A of the constitution”.

There is a Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos, he is actually a very eminent criminologist who was also at one time the Minister of Justice, Transparency and Human Rights, being appointed after being elected an MP in 2015 Professor of criminal law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki’s Law School and is also Vice President of one of Greece’s largest drug rehabilitation and social integration clinics. We wonder if he knows his name is being used?

See link to Wikipedia entry for Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos

Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos

The companies named as appearing in court are:

Now we do know that these companies which are part of the Mark Rowe “empire” (albeit crumbling), are under investigation in Tenerife and the UK, but as yet no case has been brought, which makes a mockery of the claim made in the email.

The Greek version of the “summary” includes the Signature of  Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos which you can see in the PDF below, we have also found a letter from the good Dr to the European Commissioner for Human Rights with his signature. They are very obviously different.

Now considering that Eze Group were originally targeted by the Spanish companies we mentioned and also by Hellenic Republic, then the switch to Monster clients, along with the name of the Spanish lawyer Jose Lara Cabello, it is now looking like this “fraud” is being perpetrated by the same people. The links are too close to be just a coincidence, again we leave you the reader to decide!

If you have been contacted by any of the companies mentioned, especially Hellenic Republic please use our contact page and let us know.

Catching up on Some News.

Catching up with some of the news from last week, Canarian Legal Alliance look to be on a role, another four Supreme Court ruling have been announced. 2 November, they announce 3 rulings in one day, then on 11 November they announced another.

Again these ruling reaffirmed previous judgements from Spain’s Highest Court, contract over 50 years, Floating weeks and the taking of deposits during the cooling off period all ruled illegal, with the contracts being declared null and void. Just on these four alone a total of 95,570€ has been recovered.

CLA also announced the payout of 41,190€ by Anfi to their Finnish clients, the contract was also declared null and void. As the spokesperson for CLA confirmed, the courts are taking notice of the Supreme Court, sentences are coming through faster and the payments are also getting quicker.

It was also announced that Court No 5 of The First Instance in Tenerife, found for their British clients against Resort Properties / Silverpoint. In this judgement the court used the precedent of the contracts being over 50 years to make their ruling. The client will receive £17,476 plus legal interest, with the contract being declared null and void.

It certainly appears from the the way these judgements are coming in, the process is getting faster. With all the new cases this law firm has in various stages of the legal process, there will be many more being announced. At present, they seem to be announcing at least 3 rulings each week, sometimes more.

On another note, it has been publicised that Tolemex Ltd (Bridgewell Consultants Ltd), owning company of the Timeshare Consumers Association and the forum timesharetalk has officially filed to be “struck off” the companies register. So the company is being dissolved, the question is why?

We know that this company is part of the Monster family, with Mark Rowe being the sole director, we also know there is a move by the law firm Athena Law to bring a case against them for liable. Could this be a method to avoid it?

To add to this it was also announced that Monster Travel and Sellmytimeshare.tv (Hollywood Marketing SL) have also had their membership terminated with the Direct Marketing Authority. This comes after an investigation by the Direct Marketing Commission, who found they had breached the codes of conduct laid down by the DMA.

So the next question is what will happen to the TCA if the owning company is dissolved?

Who or what company will take control?

Is it the end for the TCA?

These questions may be answered sometime in the future, but until then we will keep watching and report it when the news breaks.
