General warning to all timeshare owners!!!!

GENERAL WARNING TO ALL Timeshare owners who have been scammed by Resale Firms, Bogus Holiday Clubs, Cash Back Schemes, Class Actions, etc.

Mindtimeshare would be very keen on obtaining information about the earlier types of companies targeting timeshare owners, where no fraud has ever occurred, but still cases in which timeshare owners have been contacted, and the offer made by these companies has been not accepted.

In cases where a fraud has occurred we would need a detailed written summary of the case (including dates, name of company, offer explained in detail, payments made, etc), and a copy of all the documents related to the case – i.e. contract in which is stated the services offered, and all other documents available, including: faxes, e-mails exchanged, proof of payment (credit card slips, bank statements), etc.

In cases in which the fraud did not take place, a written account of what it was offered to timeshare owners, would also be very useful for us. Information such as website, phone number, address, used by the company which contacted the timeshare owner would be very useful.

In the cases where the fraud took place, once received the documents and detailed written account of what happened, we would do its best to help the victims.

Mindtimeshare’s goal is twofold: One is to help victims, and two, is to tell the authorities (usually the Police) about the modus operandi of these bogus firms, with the last aim to have them closed down. 

Detail us your case. We will contact you as soon as possible.

    We have just had a call from ‘Poppy’ of resortserviecare who was offering to ressurect weeks we had previously bought but written off. The offer was 4 free flights anywhere for a payment of £199. Luckily we found this site before she calls back tomorrow! You can guess the response she will get.
    While we are on have nothing to do with Silverpoint [were resort properties] we have another sad
    tale!!!

    i to had a call from a company called HM Holdings today to say that they had a buyer for my timeshare, they offered me £8k. They then proceed to say that if i accepted the offer then i would get a call from their contracts department and that i would need to pay 1195 euros for security . The girl on the phone asked for credit card details too. i said i didnt have it with me and to call me tomorrow.

    id really appreciate some advice if any one can help.

    i thought it sounded to good to be true.

    Hi. Sorry – it’s me again. My details must be going to every time-share selling company…!

    Had another call today – company called Blue Chip Holidays – a chap called Keith Croy. (0844 811 4363). http://www.blue-chip-sl.com (Spanish site)

    He phoned to say a couple wanted to buy my 8000 Diamond points for £12k. When I said yes I would sell them, he said he would contact the couple to obtain their deposit of £4k and call me back.

    Phone an hour later saying he had obtained their deposit and he would be sending a contract to me to be signed. I should then return the contract, they will then deposit the £12k and send DHL to collect certificated etc. The whole process should take 28 days.

    As protection as I would have the certificates and the couples £12k, I would need to take out an insurance to protect the money and make a payment on a VISA credit card of 1200 euros. When I said this was very similar to other scams I had come across, he reassurred me by saying as it was on a credit card, I had protection from the credit card company.

    I said I would discuss with my partner and call him back. Anyone heard of this company? Is it correct what he says regarding the protection of the cresit card?

    Advice please…

    Sue
