Wie zijn L&L Tours of L.L.Tours uit Madrid?

L&L Tours

Opnieuw is er een bedrijf bij ons aangegeven dat zomaar ineens opbelt naar eigenaars van Timesharing. Dit bedrijf werkt onder de naam van LL Tours en zeggen dat zijn in Madrid zijn.

Zoals de verschillende andere dubieuze verkoops bedrijven die we de laatste tijd hebben gemeld op ons blog, ook deze schijnt een voorkeur te hebben voor Nederlands-talige eigenaars.

Een dame met de naam Sanne Rooduijn zegt dat zij werkt voor dit bedrijf en dat zij op zoek zijn naar Timeshare eigenaars die graag willen verkopen, want LL Tours heeft kopers die staan te wachten om te kunnen kopen.

Contact gegevens voor LL Tours is een email adres: ll.tours@europe.com

Telefoon nummer: 0034 672 883 776 Fax nummer: 0034 911 811 419 en hun zogenaamde adres in de hoofdstad van Spanje: Paseo de la Castellana 166, 28046 Madrid, Spain.

Er wordt op de papieren ook een website vermeld, www.lltours.com.ve dat inderdaad een bestaande web is, maar van een reisbureau in Venezuela! En er staat niets op dat ze ook Timeshare verkoop doen of een kantoor hebben in Madrid! Het valt dus sterk te betwijfelen of deze website wel echt van L&L Tours in Madrid is..

In de papieren die Sanne Rooduijn snel opstuurt naar de Timeshare eigenaar die interesse heeft in deze verkoop, ontvangt men een voorbeeld contract. In dit contract staat de verkoop prijs die onverwachts wel heel erg hoog uitvalt. Maar wat ook niet wordt verwacht van een echt verkoop-bedrijf is dat ze een vooruit betaling vragen om de verkoop rond te krijgen en deze vooruit betaling is bijna 3000 euro.

Dus, om het even op een rijtje te zetten, we hebben hier een bedrijf dat ongevraagd belt, zegt dat ze in Madrid zitten, een website gebruiken van een bedrijf aan de andere kant van de wereld, zeggen dat er kopers staan te wachten die wel tegen de 40 duizend euros willen betalen voor een lidmaatschap, en dan een vooruit betaling vragen wat illegaal is…

Dit bedrijf is zeer zeker geen aanrader!

Mocht u zijn gebeld door de “lieftallige” Sanne van +34 672883776 L&L Tours in Madrid, laat het ons dan weten. U kunt ons bereiken via de email naar customercare@mindtimeshare.com of plaats een berichtje op ons blog.

Grupo BT Travel another cold calling Timeshare Resale Company in Madrid

bttravel

Madrid seems to be the place to be lately as we have yet another cold caller, by the name of Grupo BT Travel.

Grupo BT Travel seems to target Russian Timeshare Owners and as all the other cold callers they seem to have people lined up willing to buy and pay a lot of money for a membership.

Grupo BT Travel supplies a sample agreement after the initial call, and it becomes soon very clear that they unfortunately have no knowledge of the Timeshare Directive as they are asking for an upfront payment.

The payment is an 8% over the sales price, and as this sales price is rather high, this 8% is close to 3000 euros.

On top of this, they give the Timeshare owner 48 hours to do the bank transfer of the 8% or the sale will not go through..

We certainly do not recommend paying this money!

Contact details for Grupo BT Travel are email: bt.travel@europe.com

Telephone +34 672 512 983, Fax: +34 911 769 543

And address: Paseo de la Castellana 66, 28006 Madrid – España

There is also a website on the paperwork www.grupobttravel.com which seems to belong to a travel agent based in Isla Margarita (Venezuela). Nothing to do with a Timeshare resale company in Madrid!

Seen the above facts, the cold call and the upfront fee, we do not recommend to have any dealings with this company.

If you have been called by Grupo BT Travel from 0034 672512983 in Madrid then please do let us know. You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog

Who is L&L Tours or L.L.Tours from Madrid?

L&L Tours

A new cold calling Timeshare resale company has been brought to our attention by the name of LL Tours and supposedly based in Madrid.

As several other bogus resale companies that have been active in the past few months, this one seems to be targeting only Dutch speaking Timeshare owners.

A lady called Sanne Rooduijn claims to be working for this company and is looking for Timeshare owners willing to sell as they have buyers waiting.

Contact details of LL Tours are email address: ll.tours@europe.com

Telephone: 0034 672 883 776 Fax: 0034 911 811 419 and of course their address: Paseo de la Castellana 166, 28046 Madrid, Spain.

They also quote a website www.lltours.com.ve which is an existing web from a travel agency based in Venezuela! Nothing to do with Timeshare resale. No mention at all of a “branch” in Madrid and very doubtful that this is indeed the same company / people.

In the paperwork that Sanne Rooduijn kindly forward to the Timeshare owner, there is a sample agreement where the proposed selling price is mentioned. This price is far much higher than one would expect. But even more unexpected is the close to 3 thousand euros liability fee they request from the timeshare owner in order to process the sale.

So, to resume we have a cold calling company, claiming to be in Madrid, using a website from a company in Venezuela, stating they have buyers lined up who are willing to pay close to 40.000 euros for a membership and requesting a substantial upfront fee which is illegal, to process this sale.

We certainly do not recommend this company!

If you have been approached by an agent from LL Tours or L & L Tours with phone number +34 672883776 for a sale of your membership, then please do let us know. You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog

Have you heard from the timeshare resale company VE Viajes from Madrid?

VEVIAJES

A totally new cold caller has been spotted under the name of VE Viajes.

This company is targeting as it seems mainly Polish Timeshare Owners. They contact them by phone, out of the blue and seem to have all their Timeshare Membership details.

VE Viajes explains they are a Travel Agency in Madrid who is also selling timeshare to other consumers and larger companies. Thanks to that they have actually clients waiting to purchase the exact membership of the owner. How lucky can you be?

The contact details of VE Viajes are: Paseo de la Castellana 60, planta 3, 28046 Madrid.

Telephone 0034 603 182 313 and Fax 0034 911 811 419

There is also a website of VE Viajes www.veviajes.com which does not seem to have anything to do with these people who are calling and offering timeshare resales although the logo has been copied from here.

After the initial contact, VE Viajes quickly explains that the supposed buyer is going to pay a deposit, but to make sure all will be processed correctly the selling Timeshare owner has also to pay a fee as guarantee.

Please note that any upfront payments for a timeshare resale are forbidden! The Timeshare Directive is clear on the fact that nobody selling their timeshare should pay any upfront fee and there are no exceptions.

We certainly do not recommend VE Viajes and please be cautious when dealing with this company.

If you have been contacted by VE Viajes from +34 603182313 in Madrid, then please let us know.

Timeshare Kuendigung – „Hilfe“ für Timeshareeigentümer Online

kuedigung

Gerade eben ist uns die Nachricht über eine neue Webseite auf den Tisch geflattert, die Timeshareeigentümern Hilfe verspricht, um sich von der Last Ihres Timeshare zu befreien, Timeshare Kündigung (http://timesharekuendigung.com).

Bis jetzt ist zwar nicht bekannt, ob diese Firma namens Timeshare Kuendigung auch Konsumenten unaufgefordert per Telefon kontaktiert, jedoch die Tatsache, dass man unter Angabe von Themen wie ständig steigender Jahresgebühren, der „Ewigkeitsklausel“ und Schwierigkeiten mit Tauschsystemen wirbt, hat unsere Aufmerksamkeit erweckt.

Und siehe da! Wir konnten tatsächlich Verknüpfungen zu anderen bereits länger existierenden, zweifelhalten Firmen finden, und wir haben deshalb beschlossen vorsichtshalber einen Artikel zu erstellen.

Auf dem Internetauftritt von Timeshare Kündigung wird eine ganze Menge darüber berichtet, wie vielen Konsumenten aus so vielen Resorts schon geholfen wurde mit der „Entlassung aus Timeshare-Verträgen“, aber leider hat man vergessen zu erwähnen, wie diese Hilfe tatsächlich aussehen soll.

Dafür gibt es ja dann ein Kontaktformular, dass ausgefüllt werden soll – unter Angabe der Telefonnummer und der Daten bzgl. des Timeshare od. Ferienwohnrechts-Eigentums des Konsumenten (wie schlau auch, um an persönliche Daten von Eigentümern zu kommen!) – und es solle dann ein Rückruf innerhalb 48 Std. erfolgen, was wir auch nicht bezweifeln.

Die auf der Webseite von Timeshare Kuendigung angegebene Kontaktadresse stimmt nun leider mit der anderer Firmen überein, über die wir zuvor bereits berichtet haben, und leider nichts Gutes!

Das Thema „Ewigkeitsklausel“ ist ein besonderes Schlagwort, und wurde in der letzten Zeit von einer Anzahl zwielichtiger Firmen benutzt, um Konsumenten in noch zweifelhaftere Verträge zu locken, bei denen wie immer der Konsument um Geldzahlungen gebeten wird, meist unter der Angabe man sei in der Lage, die Last des Timeshare od. Ferienwohnrechts von Ihnen zu nehmen.

Zunächst sollte man wissen, dass die sog. Ewigkeitsklausel gar nicht in allen Timeshare-Verträgen existiert; es ist also immer wichtig sich über solche Gegebenheiten zuerst bei der eigenen Anlage zu informieren.

In der Regel findet diese Entlassung aus dem Vertrag leider nicht statt, denn so einfach ist das auch nicht, sondern es wird Konsumenten, die sich eigentlich von ihrem Timeshare, Ferienwohnrecht oder von ihrer Urlaubsclub-Mitgliedschaft befreien möchten, einfach noch mehr Geld aus der Tasche gezogen. Erst nach einiger Zeit stellen Konsumenten dann fest, dass sie Geld für Luft bezahlt haben, denn das Timeshare bleibt im Allgemeinen weiterhing unter ihrer Verantwortung, die Unterhaltskosten müssen weiterhin entrichtet werden, aber der Geldbeutel ist um einiges leichter!

Achten Sie also auf die Goldene Regel: Niemals Geldbeträge im Voraus an Firmen zahlen, und schon gar nicht an solche, die mit Themen wie der Entlassung aus Timesharing-Verträgen werben!

Sollten Sie bereits Erfahrungen mit dieser Firma gemacht haben, würden wir uns freuen, wenn Sie uns darüber berichten!

Die Kontakt-Telefonnumer für Timeshare Kuendigung lautet: 0800-181-0662.

Sollten Sie von Timeshare Kuendigung unter der Telefon-Nr. 08001810662 kontaktiert worden sein oder anderweitig in Kontakt mit dieser Firma gestanden haben, melden Sie sich bitte bei uns per E-Mail an customercare@mindtimeshare.com.

Did you receive a call from Legal Prosecutors about a pending court case?

Cold caller black phone

The company Legal Prosecutors is doing an active  call campaign this week and so far they have generated numerous inquiries.

Legal Prosecutors is targeting all those who previously dealt with Key Property Town Advisory-KPTS, Ramirez & Ramirez and Fuengirola Services 2002.

They go as far as telling all the consumers that they have “taken over” the pending court cases from the above mentioned companies and in a “mutual agreement” Legal Prosecutors have now been “appointed” to take over all pending cases.

We have to make clear here that it has never been proven that any of the previous companies really did any court cases or filed any demands in court. As a matter of fact, the paperwork they send to the consumers was incomplete and so far nobody has ever notified about a successful court case…

Then we should not forget either that the 3 companies above actually vanished or disappeared leaving all their customers behind with no possibility to contact them. Last one to leave was Ramirez & Ramirez in July of 2013, when all of the sudden their phone lines were cut off and emails were no longer replied to..

And now we are made to believe that Legal Prosecutors has actually been in contact with these companies, made an agreement and received all the paperwork from them in order to “continue” all these pending cases?

Legal Prosecutors contact details are:

2 Woodberry Grove, Finchley, London, N12 0DR, United Kingdom

Telephone: 0161 768 0447 Fax: 0872 110 4005 and email: info@legalprosecutors.com

The company is registered in the UK since the 30th of January 2014

Obviously Legal Prosecutors are not working for free, and in spite of the fact that the customers of the mentioned companies have already paid hundreds of Pounds to get things going, they now need to pay a court fee.

Indeed in Spain there is a fee to be paid when placing a court demand, but were these demands not supposed to be presented already, and are “pending” as mentioned? Because if not, how does Legal Prosecutors explain all the payments made to these companies with which they have come to this agreement?

Where is the paperwork from the courts to proof these pending cases? Paperwork with their stamps and official signatures? Paperwork with the names of the people handling the case such as lawyers, prosecutors… Which court are they dealing with, which judge, which prosecutors? Who gave Legal prosecutors the Power of Attorney to handle a case in your name?

The above all seems rather odd, and we certainly would recommend extreme caution when dealing with Legal Prosecutors.

If you have been approached by Legal Prosecutors from 01617680447 then we would like to know.

Who received a cold call from Solis Vacations in Madrid?

solis

An apparent new timeshare resale company using the name of Solis Vacations, has started a very active cold call campaign

They are targeting the Timeshare owners of all kinds of resorts, and the message is clear, they have guaranteed sales for all of them.

Prices are quoted around 30 to 40 thousand pounds for Points and Timeshare weeks.

Solis Vacations does require an upfront fee though which they kindly call a “default guarantee”. Whatever you call it, it still remains to be an upfront payment which is against the law.  On top of it they already mention that the payment will be taken by a third party, which means that claiming a refund through the consumer act will be very difficult!

Contact details for Solis Vacations are; Calle Orense 26, 28020 Madrid, Spain

Telephone: 0034 917 610 906 and Email: info@solisvacations.com

The website www.solisvacations.com was registered in July 2014. This website pretends to be a long going Travel Agency website with awards and everything, which seems a bit odd with the date of the web registration…

Strangely enough there is not one single timeshare on display on the web, or a listing of what they are selling.

The cold call and the upfront fees are certainly not providing a very positive image of this company and we would recommend caution when dealing with Solis Vacations.

If they have approached you already from +34 917610906 then please do let us know.
