The original posts here Fraudulent use of UK Address in Spain and Timeshare scam revealed using Courier Service to Spain reveal how a team of fraudsters are systematically targeting elderly and vulnerable people in the UK, often just after a bereavement, to sell them non-existent timeshare "opportunities". West Midlands fraud squad are investigating and a helpful firm in Spain has provided them with much useful information.

However, letters still arrive in the UK from defrauded customers sent to Middleton Properties and Thornton Estates which are passed direct to the Police. Most are hand-written and being sent by people who do not seem to have internet access. Therefore, if Forum members could circulate the details amongst elderly friends and family living in the UK they will save a lot of pain for those targeted by these unscrupulous people. Below is the latest post on the above blogs:-

Thornton Estates now operate from a PO box in Benalmadena, Spain. Names associated with both companies Are..James Stevenson, Ross Todd, James Hurst (sales director),Robert Dell (accounts dept), Kara Newton,& Emma Arkley (administration). They use a fraudulent escrow account with a JD Management Services. They give the name of Mr John Downey as a prospective buyer. Hope this helps!
