Hello everyone 

I’m new here and want to say hi. 

The reason why I’m on this site is to find others who have been ripped off by Jill Bridden, owner of Ocean Management. I have just seen the information on Trip Advisor and my bank has also contacted me to advise that Ocean Management have failed to make any payments as the managing agent. Now I’m in debt and found out that Jill Bridden has fled to England and still collecting rent payments which should be paid to the landlord, like myself. 

I’m in the process of reporting this to the police here in Tenerife and in England. 

I’ve managed to locate an address for Jill Bridden as she us clearly not responding to emails or any messages sent. 

Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? Jill Bridden owns other companies and requests full payment on holiday booking which fall through on arrival . 

The whole family are in this scam so be very careful of dealing with Jill Bridden or her daughters and family members. To date the have scammed the Tenerife residents and holiday makers of nearly  £1,000, 000. Don’t be the next victim like myself. 

If you have been affected, please let me know. 

Don’t let Jill Bridden and her fake company ( golf n villas, Tenerife Property Management and Ocean Mangement) defraud you of your money 

I look forward to your cry!

Hi Cocktails,

Ralph Longthorpe is currently under investigation by the NCA regarding money laundering through Jill Bridden's companies Golf n villas and ocean management in Las Americas, in conjunction with an investigation by the Cuerpo de Policia regarding the funneling of laundered money from the Tenerife drug and prostitution network into UK bank accounts.

The family have indeed stolen sums amounting to over £1,000,000 from holiday makers and apartment owners of who nearly all have withdrawn their properties from the company after not being paid rent and to all accounts they are still scamming even now. All the girls from the office left when they realised what was happening but a woman calling herself Vikki whom is apparently a relative of Jill Bridden is now masquerading as the original Vikki who used to work there and contacting holidaymakers asking for the balance of their holidays. DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO THIS WOMAN.

On a very serious note. One of the holidaymakers booked into Santiago Parque near Christmas time, a very elderly gentleman, was scammed for a serious amount of money for a big family holiday and has since died and his family are blaming the stress of the incident.

This gentleman's grand daughter is engaged to man whose family are one of the biggest criminal families in the North of England (If you live in the North East you will know exactly who I mean and I'm too scared to post the name here) and two weeks ago three of the sons were in Las Americas asking questions regarding the whereabouts of Jill Bridden. As far as I know they were given three addresses, one in Stone in Staffordshire in the UK, another in Stoke on Trent, and another in Santa Cruz.

According to the bar owner and staff who witnessed this, the couple who were asked for the information were white as sheets and shaking like a leaf afterwards and had stated that someone called "Connie" was responsible and the Briddens were duped into this situation.

If you yourself have been affected financially by this I know that the fraud investigation team at First Direct Bank are trying to contact people who have paid bankers drafts into Ralph Longthorpe's account.

Hope this helps

Hi she ripped me off for £150, I have reported this to action fraud. She cashed my cheque into her personal bank account and I have given these details to the police.

Do you have a contact on who to contact regarding her criminality as I want to add my details to the list of victims. Thank you Warren

Really hope karma caught up with her. 

Really concerning to read how the police in Tenerife took no action.
