To the best of my knowledge, Incentive Leisure Group Ltd Gibraltar – main marketer of Timelinx Group – www.timelinx.com/en/ – has ceased trading early this year. Even Incentive Leisure Group´s site includes more information about its alleged current legal status, and of its cashback scheme, Reclaim Ltd – http://www.leisuregroup.net/.
The following article published in the Daily Mirror last January would support the view that ILG is not active anymore in the UK soil. Some comments added to the article would show that ILG had sacked its entire staff, and closed down their offices in Costa del Sol, and the UK. We also have other sources who would confirm this information.
Incentive Leisure and Personal Travel go AWOL – January 19th, Daily Mirror
However recent information obtained in March which still needs verification would tell us that although the Timelinx Group has closed its UK operations; still its Personal Travel Group (PTG) scheme – www.personaltravelgroup.com – is still operating from Gibraltar.
As indicated Incentive Leisure Group Ltd in Gibraltar ceased trading last January. This company was Timelinx´s last marketer using such name which was operative, as the companies listed with the same name at the UK Companies House had been dissolved earlier – i.e. Incentive Leisure Group (Milton Keynes) Ltd. & Incentive Leisure Group (U.K.) Ltd.).
Moreover the Office of Fair Trading had announced last December that it was taking to Court to Incentive Leisure Group, Personal Travel Group, and Geo Demographic Market Research Ltd (previously known as the Direct Marketing Partnership Group Ltd), although this is a matter about which we do not have further information though – www.oft.gov.uk/news-and-updates/press/2010/146-10
On 21 January 2011 the Gibraltar Chronicle published a Legal Notice – www.oft.gov.uk/shared_oft/consumer-enforcement/gibraltar-chronicle.pdf – stating that Incentive Leisure Group Limited, would be wound up by way of creditor’s voluntary liquidation.
The OFT has informed the liquidator about its action in the UK and its interest in the proposed liquidation. In the meantime, the OFT claims that it will continue its action against ILG, and other defendants in the UK, and monitoring the place in Gibraltar.
Another worrying sign that tell us that the Timelinx Group might not have completely stopped trading, it is that besides the information gathered that tell us that Personal Travel Group (PTG) might be still operating from Gibraltar, it is also that we have detected a warning on cold callers published on the website of the bogus holiday club membership, Designer Way Vacation Club (DWVC) - www.dwvc.com/en/ – marketed until recently by ILG itself.
We have also some evidences that tell us that the Incentive Leisure Group might have ceased trading in South Africa late last year, as a result of the death of Garry Leigh – Timelinx Group´s top guy and founder – closing down its two sales decks, located in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and transferring at the same time, the handling of the holiday bookings of the DWVC Members, to Pro Travel Solutions, in the UK.
This is the information we have currently about ILG, and other Timelinx companies, however it would require further investigation to be 100% certain about the current status of the Timelinx Group.
