Find me in Menorca – Find me Travel – Find me Directory – FMD Sales. Update!

After our earlier blog article in April on this resale company – http://wp.me/p1kmoi-2J – we have received many messages from consumers and we have now more information on the “Modus Operandi” of this company.

As we know the resale company FMD or Find Me Directory is linked to the marketing company called Find Me in Menorca – http://www.findmeinmenorca.com, which also promotes another holiday club membership – Find Me Travel – www.findmetravel.net.

For the sales site the website is www.world-sales-marketing.com

Contact number they use is: 0844 991 2131

And email addresses: corporate@fmdsales.com and enquiries@fmdsales.com

FMD Sales is Cold Calling timeshare owners and tell them they have a firm resale offer for their timeshare by a corporate buyer. They even go one step further and will put this in writing! Strange thing is though that over the phone they ask a retainer fee / deposit to secure this sale but in the paperwork they send to the timeshare owner it is explained that first he has to become a member of a Holiday Club called Odyssey 7.

The joining fee is calculated within the amount the timeshare owner is going to receive for the sale of his timeshare but there will be a small balance to pay of approx. £1900. Once they pay the balance, the timeshare owner becomes a member of Odyssey 7 and his timeshare is “urgently” sold to the already waiting corporate buyer waiving with cash in his hand.

Payment needs to be made in 72 hours (?) and total process of resale will take up 28 days…by that time the timeshare owner will most probably realize he has been taken for a ride, paid £1900 for a membership in a discount Holiday Club and still has his timeshare for sale..

So if you receive a call from FMD and they start pitching you on the corporate buyer and the quick sale of your timeshare membership, please be aware that you might end up with more than you expected but not with the timeshare sold.

Have you been called by FMD?

We would like to know!

    yes I was approached in february with reference to my connections 6 ownership, they said they had a buyer and were offering me £1500 for it, I had to outlay 600 Euos deposit, Just before the deadline they phoned to tell me that it had fallen through, but they would put me on a corporate scheme to transfer the Connections 6 to Odyssey 7, and I would receive extraoney from this I had to provide £995. This was a transfer scheme as I insisted that I did not want to partake in any more holiday ownership. The corporate transfer was supposed to take 28 days at the end of which i would receive all the money i had paid and the £1500 plus some extra. This was some 3 montha ago, the person who was dealing will this has now left, I was given a contact No in london and spoke to a lady who had taken over, she was supposed to ring me last week. I have phoned the No no answer, phoned the office in spain got no reply, left messages at both. Eventually got a call from the office in spain, new guy taken over, office in london has been shut, tthe new guy said he would look at the details, but i would definitely get my money. Now waiting for phone call from him.

    • Hi Bob,
      I am sorry to read you have fallen for the trap of these people.
      I am afraid the sale won’t happen so it is time to start a refund claim.
      We are sending you the info by email.
      Kind regards
      Customer care
