    You are quite right concerning the illegality of Timeshare/Holiday Clubs that were sold in Spain and the Canary Islands, lots of Companies have cropped up, some scams and some genuine Companies, they contacting Javier at this Website:

    The company was only incorporated on 10/10/2016 so less than 1 year old.

    If they called you, it is almost certainly a scam. If you called them, perhaps less so. As noted they have only been in business since November so it would be unlikely they would have any satisfied customers so far.

    The terms and conditions on the website are very simple and suggest they take (an unstated) percentage of any recovery but make no mention of any up front fees. The minute anyone suggests you pay to get rid of it or worse buy something else instead with a promise of a cash back at some point in the future, run as fast as you can.

    This company have a good track record of timeshare terminations. Importantly they do not charge any up front fee for their service which is normally a good indication of the type of company they are. They have some decent testimonials online

    They are the sister firm to Praetorian Legal ( who are registered and authorised with the MOJ (Ministry of Justice) another important factor to take into consideration when dealing with claims companies.
