End of the Week and Another Fake Firm Emerges

Welcome to the final article for this week, today we highlight yet another new “claims” company that is contacting clients who have dealt with other companies, Inconel Administration SL. As you will see this new company has some very interesting links. We also report on the latest in the Anfi saga with a very interesting article published in Canarias7 a news periodical that is published in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. It follows the problems being faced by Hermanos Santana Cazorla SL, the 50% and Golden Shareholder of Anfi.

Over the past weeks Inside Timeshare has been reporting on several “claims” companies who have been targeting members/clients of Eze Group, well, it seems it is now the turn of clients of ABC Legal and ABC Lawyers.

Inconel Administration SL was registered with the Mercantile Registry on the 8 August 2019, so it is only just 7 months old, the record is also missing the CIF Number. Their registered address is:

C/ Coronel Ripollet Edificio Santos Rein 3a 29640 Fuengirola Málaga

An address we are very familiar with as it is also the address used by Platinum Services and Administration SL, another company that we have highlighted and is also behind the Eze Group scams.

But it is not just the address that is familiar, it is the director of the company that caught our attention, Jose Miguel Muñoz Cañas, who is also the director O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions who are also behind the Eze Group scam.

Muñoz is also associated with some of the older and very dubious companies which operated out of Fuengirola years ago. These are:

Fastline Legal Services SL, Greenges 2005 SL, Rapid Reclaims SL.

This person is also known to have ties with one of the biggest scammers on the Costa del Sol since the infamous Tony Muldoon, this was Ramirez and Ramirez one of the first and biggest of the fake law firms.

There is a website but so far we have not been able to find out when it was registered and who by, the message comes up as it is either an invalid address or unsupported (very suspicious). The website is:

Now according to the website under the section lawyers they claim:

At present our lawyers have more than 1000 cases going through the courts of Málaga.

We have had successful prosecutions and convictions against the following companies.

MacAnthony Realty International S.L, Incentive Leisure Group S.L, Instant Access S.A, Blue Chip, Dream Homes WorldWide.

So, over 1000 cases and won cases against companies that are no longer operating such as MacAnthony which has not been around since 2010. This is very impressive considering that the company has only been registered for 7 months!

If you have been a client of ABC Legal, ABC Lawyers or any of the other Mark Rowe companies please be aware that this is a scam to fleece you of your cash.

Past articles on linked companies.

To end this week we bring you the latest news regarding the Cazorla’s and Anfi.

As we all know Anfi is 50% owned by the company Hermanos Santana Cazorla SL who also hold the Golden Share and control the board of directors. Canarias7 which is a news periodical in Gran Canaria published on the 5 March 2020 on the financial woes of the Cazorla’s.

It appears that the Mercantile Court has admitted for processing the request for the declaration of necessary insolvency, in other words, they may just be going into liquidation.

This was submitted by Isla Marina SL who claim that Hermanos Sanatana Cazorla SL owes 47 million euros for unpaid loans along with other debts.

It is also noted that the Cazorla company also owes Ifa Canarias (the other 50% partner in Anfi) 9.3 million euros and 4.6 million to Sparebank as guarantor of the syndicated loan were also named in the court.

You can read the full story at the link below.

That is all for this week, join us again next week for more on the world of timeshare. Have a great weekend and please be aware of the “scam” callers.

Start the Week

Welcome to the start of another week with Inside Timeshare, over the weekend the emails have been coming in thick and fast from clients who have had dealings with the Mark Rowe companies such as ABC legal. All have the same story and also have now got the same problems. We also look at the latest news from the courts which came in this morning.

As we know ABC Legal was one of the Mark Rowe companies, offering “exits” from timeshare contracts with the promise of “compensation” at the end of it. Many of our readers who contacted us ended up with the “service” after being contacted by Rowe’s other companies such as Monster Credits and then Jive Hippo.

The promise was to get out of the timeshare but to do so the client had to purchase the products Monster Credits and Jive Hippo (which replaced Monster). Once they had made the purchase then ABC would “exit” them from the timeshare.

Unfortunately, all were told the same thing, “don’t pay any further maintenance”, if the timeshare company sends out demands they should ignore them and send them to ABC. They were also told not to contact their timeshare company, well, we know why, had they done so they would have found out at an earlier stage that they were not “exited” from their contracts.

All received the same “certificate of termination” from ABC who stated that as far as they were concerned the timeshare contract was ended and they did not envisage any timeshare company chasing for arrears.

Unfortunately, this is not the case, all our readers have received demands and in some cases threats of legal action if not paid.

As we reported in previous articles, ECC has taken over ABC assets and is now in the process of contacting clients. ECC works with M1 Legal and is looking into each case on an individual basis. If you had dealings with ABC you can contact ECC on the following email and see what they can do for you. [email protected]

We now move to the latest news from the courts, this time from the Court of First Instance in Palma de Mallorca.

This case involves Restotel SA and Clubotel SA, both part of the Ona Group, with the court declaring the contract illegal and therefore null and void. The court ordered the French client to be repaid his full purchase price of 36,876.36€, the court also ordered by way of penalty against Restotel to refund in double all payments made during the statutory cooling-off period amounting to 31,501.64€

The court also ordered the company to repay maintenance fees to the tune of 7,736.35€ giving the French client a total of 76,114.35€ plus legal fees and legal interest.

This is yet another happy client of Canarian Legal Alliance who is now timeshare free.

If you have a timeshare problem and would like to know your legal position or if you have been contacted by any company regarding relinquishment or claims and would like to know if they are genuine, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.

Mid Week Report

So far this has proved to be a very busy week with many emails and lots of research to get on with, so Inside Timeshare apologises for the lack of an article yesterday. Only recently Inside Timeshare reported that ECC/M1 Legal has taken over many assets and clients of various Mark Rowe companies such as ABC Legal and ABC Lawyers. We have received many emails from clients regarding yet two more Mark Rowe companies being taken over, but what will this mean for the clients?

We begin with Lansdown Financial Limited, as we all know this is the (Rowe) arm which ABC passed clients to make a claim against their timeshares on a no win no fee basis. But as we know they had to have their contracts cancelled first.

Inside Timeshare has never had any reports of any client ever receiving the promised “compensation” and the question has always been how will they be claiming this “compensation”?

As we have not had any reports this is a very difficult question to answer, all we can guess is that no claims were ever processed or just failed under “no grounds” for a claim. Your guess is as good as mine.

Well, it now seems that there may be a glimmer of hope for clients who have been passed to Lansdown by ABC, a law firm based in Manchester has now taken over the assets and clients of Lansdown Financial.

The law firm is Mellor Solicitors Ltd, they are a duly registered company and as a law firm are registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority, with the SRA Registration 639178. Their address is:

Mellor Solicitors Ltd, 8 Church Lane, Oldham, Lancashire, OL1 3AP

Their website:

Hopefully, this should be good news for those clients as Mellor Solicitors have a proven track record in the field of compensation claims, we certainly hope so.

The next one is rather interesting, this concerns yet another Mark Rowe company and product called Jive Hippo, as you are all aware this product or club replaced the very discredited Monster Credits and Monster Rewards which came before.

The company which has taken over Jive Hippo members is called Gr8stays, which is also a club based travel company offering discounted prices on accommodation flights and a host of other products. All we can say is that once again we hope that those members of Jive Hippo who felt cheated may now get the deals they were promised originally.

As always time will tell.
