Simple Timeshare Sales & Marketing is a resale company with postal address in Lowry Plaza, The Quays, Salford,Manchester, M50 3UB and telephone 0161 7132554. Although one consumer who received paperwork from them had included a self-addressed envelope with another address: Abbey Crest Consultancy Ltd” – Manor business Centre, Manor Street, St Helens WA10 2TZ.
Simple Timeshare Sales & Marketing is cold calling timeshare consumers with a guaranteed offer to sell their timeshare. The problem arises when consumers are being requested a deposit for this resale of £995, which as per the New European Timeshare Directive from 23rd of February 2011 is not legal and should not happen.
When the actual “Sales and Marketing” contract arrives, the consumer also finds out he has only 7 days to cancel this agreement and a 30% from the paid deposit will be retained as admin cost. The guaranteed offer can be any offer and come from Simple Timeshare Sales & Marketing or any associated company. Main complaint of the consumers that have contacted us is that once they paid the deposit, they couldn’t get hold of Simple Timeshare Sales & Marketing anymore.
The website www.simpletimesharesales.info created only 3 months ago, has indeed a lot of info but there is also a very long list of memberships for sale for DWVC, Incentive Leisure, Principle Travel, etc. Holiday clubs which are very unlikely to be sold on a second hand marketplace, but of course if every owner of these listed memberships has paid £995 as a deposit, an offer was made either far below the price or a supposed “sale that fell through”, it could be a very lucrative business.
To make it sound all more credible, there is a mention of a solicitor they use for the processing of the sale, Mr. Frank Howard from Frank Howard & Co Solicitors, Telephone 01925653481 but when contacting the solicitors office about Simple Timeshare Sales & Marketing being unreachable the only thing they offer to do is passing a message in order to call the consumer back. A call back that never happens.
