JRG Equity

Have you been cold called by JRG Equity Release? Because we have received already a lot of inquiries!

JRG Equity Release claims to be appointed by the Spanish Government to process the refund of money from the funds held by the Spanish Government for victims of the ILG / DWVC scam and the Reclaim certificates.

JRG does not request any money as they have already been paid by the Government.

They work from UK and Spain, and inform the timeshare consumer he can obtain a 68% of his reclaim and the other 32% will have to go to the Spanish government for fees and taxes.

In order to be part of this claim of 58.000 certificates (!!!) the consumer has to be quick, as the process is due to the end of April.

In order to be part of this tremendous claim, the consumer has to go to a local notary on his own expense and their identity by Drivers license, utility bills and also a copy of the Reclaim certificate.

Then JRG Equity release will send a courier around for picking up the Certificate and there you go!

Well not quiet…
They also require legal fees to be paid up front and those add up to around a £1000, oops…and these are not going to the tax man, oh no, these are to be paid by bank transfer into an account of a company called PROPIEDADES ANDALUCIA SUR SL

Now the story starts to wobble. And we investigated a bit further;

JRG Equity Release has a website http://www.jrgequityrelease.com which was registered on the 24th of January this year. Their address is a postbox in Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol, and their phone number is 0871 408 9549

Going through the information we found clear indications that this company is linked to other dubious companies, of which several were closed down by the police:

Sol Bookers SL. (closed by police in 2008) Greystone Leisure & Travel SL. (closed by police in 2008), Red Rock Marketing SL and Timeshare Disposal two companies mentioned on our blog.

That does not sound right!

Adding up the fact they claim to be working for the Spanish Government, which is highly unlikely with this modus operandi, ask for an upfront fee by bank transfer, and the mentioned connections…our advice is going to be straight forward and a big NO.

Have you been called by JRG Equity Release from 08714089549 ?

Please let us know! yourtimeshare@hush.com

Are you unable to contact your cashback or reclaim company?

This is what many consumers are reporting to me.

Reclaim Ltd, http://www.reclaim.gi is linked with the company Pro IV Solutions SA, at the headquarters’ Incentive Leisure Group in Spain (now called Personal Travel Group):

You should be aware that one of the main firms marketing this cashback, i.e. Incentive Leisure Group (Gibraltar) Ltd, along with the holiday club Designer Way Vacation Club, among others products associated with this cashback, has gone into liquidation just this January 2011, and last December 2010 the Office of Fair Trading had decided to take ILG (Gibraltar) Ltd to Court, along with other companies.

I strongly believe that your chances to get anything back from your cashback certificate are very slim.

If you are one of Reclaim’s victims, I strongly recommend you to report your information to “CIS Ltd” in the UK.

Their phone number is 02031371898 and are based in London.

Call them and they will call you back to arrange a consultant to come to your house and sort all your RECLAIM / CASHBACK worries out.

However, there is a fee to pay.. Surprise, Surprise..

This will only be taken once the consultant has made an appointment to visit you.

They help you stop you paying any more maintenance fees.
They re-register your reclaim certificate correctly.

Then all you have to do is send off your certificate and you receive your money back. It will only be a percentage of your certificate. Reports are anything from 42% to 72%.

So anybody that has a reclaim certificate, especially those who were scammed by “Incentive Leisure Group” who bought a “DWVC PACK” get in contact with this company as they will help you.

If anyone has dealt with this company or any others and has received reclaim or cashback monies then please get in contact.

How to stay safe!

Yourtimeshare recommends that consumers should be extremely cautious of resale companies that:

Make an unsolicited contact i.e. a cold call

Request any form of upfront payment:

Common reasons for an upfront fee are: deposits, administration fees, bonds of trust, surety against withdrawal, insurance cover, validity survey, land registry tax, certificate charge and VAT.

Ensure you always make a payment with your credit card as you would be fully protected under laws governing the use of Credit Cards.

Ask for assurances that they will not take any upfront payment.

Never send them your Ownership or Reclaim Certificate.

These people have unlimited imaginations when it comes to stealing your money so don’t trust them – no matter how convincing and reassuring they may seem.

If in doubt email us: yourtimeshare@hush.com
