Just as we thought we have seen everything another new SCAM has been identified, once again it is the clients of Eze Group who are being targeted. The strange thing about this SCAM is that it is purportedly from the Hellenic Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs and refers to a “recent class-action lawsuit against various opportunist entities alike who chose to unlawfully, deceive their unsuspecting clients”.

Ministry of Justice
The Ministry of Justice Transparency and Human Rights was initially established as the State Justice Secretariat in April 1833.
It is entrusted with the management of judicial function, which is one of the three State functions. The Minister of Justice, Transparency and Human Rights supervises the administration of justice, namely organisational issues of the courts and infrastructure as well as economic and administrative support and guarantees the personal and operational independence of judges in accordance with the Constitutional requirements.
At the same time, the Ministry is charged with the development of legislative initiative in basic justice sectors, in which is included the harmonization of internal law with the rules of international law. Additionally, this initiative includes development of institutional actions that widens and strengthens individual rights and freedoms and empowers the function of the democratic institutions in general.
The Land Registries and Real Estate Offices are also under the Ministry’s supervision, as well as all the associations of employees in the justice sector.
Furthermore, the Ministry of Justice, Transparency and Human Rights is entrusted with the planning and application of the general national correctional policy.
The Presidential Decree 36/2000 (Official Government Gazette 29/17.2.2000) determines the state policy of the Ministry as well as the organisation, the responsibilities and the staffing of its services.
As you can see from the above email there is very little information but a lot of explanation and history of the Ministry of Justice, Transparency and Human Rights which was established in 1833, wow, that does go back a long way.
In the following document on the second page, there is also a history of the Court of Cassation in Athens, namely Areios Pagos, which was renamed the Supreme Court in 1834 (according to them). This “history again goes into great depth and even goes back to the year 462BC. Well, all we can say is they certainly have a flair for the dramatic and not getting to the point of the case, apart from wanting money that is! (See the remaining documents at the end of the article).
The only thing that is genuine about these documents is the address that is given on one:
Λεωφόρος Αλεξάνδρας 121 Αθήνα 115 22, Ελλάδα
Which when translated from Greek is:
This does happen to be the actual address for the Supreme Court of Greece.
According to the documents provided the following companies are all being prosecuted for fraud:
Eze Group Europe Ltd, Regency Shores SL (registered in Spain), Everywhere Travel Ltd, Dreamland Breaks, La Pinta, Club Class SL, Timeshare Information Centre (TIC), Timeshare Advice Bureau (TAB) MONSTER TRAVEL SL
It just makes Inside Timeshare wonder how the Greek Courts are prosecuting companies that are based in Spain and the UK and have had no dealings that we know of in Greece.
Our reader according to the correspondence received has been awarded over 21,000€, with costs and compound interest being awarded at a later date. But in order to release this money, they must first pay the tax which amounts to 2,935.02€.
Another name has also come up with this particular scam which Inside Timeshare is familiar with, Jose Lara Cabello. As we know this is a duly registered lawyer with the Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Malaga with the registration number 6956. This lawyer has also been linked with two companies based in Malaga which are also perpetrating a similar scam. (see the following link)
Inside Timeshare has tried to make contact with this lawyer to check if he is aware his name and registration number is being used, needless to say Inside Timeshare has never received a reply or had our telephone calls answered. This leads us to the conclusion that this lawyer is not what he seems! We leave you the reader to draw your own conclusions and come up with the right word to describe him.
Once again, this proves that without doing your homework and making a thorough investigation into companies that contact you out of the blue, you the unsuspecting timeshare owner is set to lose yet more money.
Have you been contacted by these people or any other company which claims that your timeshare company is in court and you have been awarded huge sums of money?
If you please use our contact page and let us know as much as possible, Inside Timeshare will then research and publish any warnings to consumers, if you need help in determining if any company that has made contact is genuine then again please use our contact page and we will point you in the right direction.
Remember do your homework, you won’t regret it in the end!
