Another New Claims Company Emerges

In the world of timeshare, there are always new companies emerging, in the past, it was the resale companies that ruled the roost of scamming timeshare owners, now it is the “exit” and “claims” companies. Not to forget the “fake” law firms such as the Litigious Abogados Family that have taken over. Today we highlight yet another new claims company which makes some wonderful claims in their cold call and on their website.

The company is JSD Group Ltd with the Company Registration Number 12507867 and the registered address 69 Raffles Avenue, Carlisle, Cumbria, United Kingdom, CA2 7ED.

The sole director and shareholder is named as Scott James Deakin, his director’s record shows no attachment to any other company, although company records do show another person named Scott James Deakin, as a director for another company. The company has nothing to do with timeshare and the dates of birth for the two people are different.

JSD Group Ltd was incorporated on 10 March 2020, so it is only just 3 months old, yet on the website, they show three “testimonials” from “clients” which to say the least is rather incredible.

Karen, North Wales – £8,907

I can’t believe how easy it was. JSD group are great at what they do, and if it wasn’t for what I’d read off their website I never would have known I could really win this. it feels so surreal.

John, County Down – £28,772

Elated is an understatement. I feel absolutely made up that I can send my only grandchild to further education. It’s a privilege to be able to write this. JSD Group, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Gillian, Davenport, Greater Manchester – £12,098

I’d never told anyone how I felt. For years, I held my head in shame. I had let my guard down and got carried away. God bless you guys, you really listened to everything and the information you highlighted was really helpful for me.

Not bad for a company that has only been operating for 3 months!

Their mission statement is also rather laughable, it is long-winded and clearly written by someone who is trying to appear “educated”.

Written by the People for the People.

JSD Group are UK domiciled publishers of acute information for industry relevant cases in the retaliation of mis-selling, misguidance and misuse of timeshare.

We conduct 1st party research and collate 2nd and 3rd party research from industry leading companies, revolving around mistreatment at the hands of timeshare resorts, enabling our readers to fight back when they feel they should.

We publish the information and documentation for the sole use of the client in the pursuit of their own personal compensation if applicable.

Our only promise to you, the client, is to provide legitimate and up to date information, in the hope we can provoke the self establishment of conclusions, leading to the ethical procurement of funds.

Our customers can often find the information necessary to register a claim with the Financial Ombudsman on their own, putting the power back in the hands of the public.

The website itself was only registered on 15 March 2020 and is set to expire on 15 March 2021, so again a new “claims” company which has only registered their website for 1 year, that does not endear any confidence.

The website itself is very basic with only 3 sections, the Home page, Get in Touch and 3rd party material, which is nothing more than out of date news stories.

What we do know is that our reader was contacted by this company with the promise of a claim against ILG & DWVC, which we know were closed down by the UK authorities back in 2012. So the question is who against and how are they going to make a claim?

Once again this highlights the measures you must take before engaging with any company that cold calls especially making outrageous claims of winning huge amounts for their clients. If you have been contacted by this or any other company please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.

Start the Week: Another New Claims Company and Latest News on Nordic

Welcome to the start of another week in the world of timeshare, today we bring you the news of the latest company to start contacting timeshare owners with a view to making a claim. Yet something does not look right with this company, it smells scam all over. We also bring you the latest information on Nordic Consulting supplied by several readers. Looks as though they are now going in another direction.

We begin first with the latest company to make our readers suspicious with a cold call, it is called Refund Solutions and what we have found does not make this company look very genuine.

Beginning our research we find agenuine website, and unrelated company of the same name website called

https://refundsolutions.co.uk/

According to this website Refund Solutions is the trading name of Rightpath Insurance Claims Limited, registered at company house on 29 October 2007, with the Company Registration 06411430.

The registered address of the genuine company is:

New Century House New Century Road, Laindon, Basildon, England, SS15 6AG

They also have a second website:

http://www.rpclaims.com/

Yet both websites clearly show that this company has nothing to do with any timeshare claims, they appear to specialise with “Travel Insurance” claims, helping clients to obtain the refunds for cancellations via the clients travel insurance.

Having contacted the genuine company Refund Solutions and Rightpath Insurance Solutions Ltd, this has been confirmed that they do not deal with any timeshare related cases and that their trading name is being used without their knowledge.

So this is a genuine company, especially in the light the above information and of the emails received by our readers.

These emails are the usual confirmation of the telephone conversation regarding a timeshare claim, they also confirm the time and date for the appointment to see one of their “claims advisors”.

Now this is the interesting part, the email which is signed by Michael Mulberry, Senior Appointment Coordinator, Refund Solutions and giving the telephone number 0113 490 0623 with the addresses given on the website as:

St Paul’s House, 23 Park Square South, Leeds, LS1 2ND

Compliance Office – Park Row House, 19-20 Park Row, Leeds LS1 5JF, United Kingdom

This also gives the website:

www.refund-solutions.co.uk

As you can see it is very similar to the one we know is genuine, yet this website was only registered on 20 August 2019 and is set to expire on 20 August 2020, only a mere 6 months away. As usual, the person behind the website has used a privacy registration to hide who they are.

This company is in our mind very dubious indeed, not only do they not show any company registrations they are certainly not part of the genuine company, the advice of Inside Timeshare is to have no dealings with the fake Refund Solutions using the refund-solutions website or the addresses and telephone number.

Once again Nordic Consulting has been the subject of several more emails from concerned readers, this time they are from another resort and not Silverpoint clients.

It would now appear that Nordic Consulting is now cold calling Anfi owners, yet they do not appear to be giving any information, in fact, one of our readers explained that the call was very odd indeed. The call just confirmed that he was the person and the owner, the caller then just hung-up after saying thanks and have a nice day!

Obviously our readers in this instance now believe that they will be hounded with constant calls regarding making a claim against Anfi.

Well, this was to be expected as they will have no more Silverpoint owners to chase in the light of the current situation with Silverpoint.

It will also be very interesting what court documents they will use and claim as their own, using the names of the lawyers who represented the clients on behalf of another law firm as they already have done with Silverpoint and Supreme Court judgements.

Now considering that they are only just contacting Anfi, it would be very unwise for them to use any cases from the past, especially in light that we have no knowledge of Nordic even filing against Anfi.

Another question which has been asked in many emails, has anyone who went with Nordic actually been paid out?

Once again there is no evidence of this to date, so we must assume that no one has ever been paid out. In fact, not one email has been received from any reader that has told us they had a case through Nordic and won, considering that Inside Timeshare has published about this company on many occasions we do find the lack of comments very strange indeed. We leave you the reader to decide on that question!

That is all for today, the first part of the article is once again a very stark reminder of the lengths these people will go to get hold of your money.

REMEMBER DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

Mid Week Round Up: Latest Information on A&K Advisory Ltd

More details are emerging about A K Advisory Limited from our readers, with new names making the calls. The pitch is still the same although with a few more details to make it sound more plausible.

Just to recap, the company details are:

A & K Advisory Limited, company number 11120313

With the registered address: 20 Cow Green, Halifax, England, HX1 1HX

Telephone 01422 400223

The email addresses supplied are [email protected]

[email protected]

This is the email being used by Jill Rutherford.

Which are free email address provider and is not linked to any company website, always a sure sign of a dodgy company.

The company was registered on 20 December 2017 with the director named as Adam Hussain.

The first new name we have is Martin Jacobs, in his call, he states he is the payments manager for A & K Advisory, well, this is a new position which we have not heard of before, does sound official. During the call, Martin Jacobs claims that they will be able to get back all the money the client paid to Eze Group, plus, wait for it an extra £2000!

Sounds great, but first, the client needs to pay £725 by BACS (Bacs Payment Schemes Limited, previously known as Bankers’ Automated Clearing Services, is the organisation with responsibility for the schemes behind the clearing and settlement of UK automated payment methods Direct Debit and Bacs Direct Credit, as well as the provision of managed services for third parties.) The money will be held in an ESCROW account for 10 days.

A courier will then arrive with paperwork, once this has been translated into Spanish (in Madrid), the client will then receive their money. The client also received an email from Mr Jacobs outlining the cost but there was no company name or details.

The second name to appear is David Eaton, in his call, he asked the client if they would like to go with A & K Advisory to get their money back from Eze Group. Again he wanted £725 to be paid upfront and they will then work on the client’s behalf to get the original money refunded.

When you think about it, £725 doesn’t sound much considering how much other scams are charging, but if you think of how many people may have been taken in it soon mounts up. It would only need 200 Eze Group clients to pay this amount and the scammers will have received £145,000 a very lucrative scam indeed.

These companies are out to take your money and that is it, there is no money being held by any Spanish Court or UK Court for that matter. The courts do not appoint or retain private or third-party companies to contact clients, plus the Spanish Courts at present are not even involved in any case against Eze Group.

If you have been contacted by A & K Advisory Limited or any of the companies listed below or even any new company name with a similar story, then use our contact page and let us know. We would also advise you to contact Action Fraud and make a report. The potential amounts of money that these people are able to make is huge.
