Breakaway Marketing Solutions is yet another Timeshare resale company asking for an upfront fee, calling it an “insurance” fee.
Insurance the owner will proceed with the sale and send off the paperwork, as they have a guaranteed buyer waiting with cash to pay for the timeshare.
Shame for them that most of us already heard this story before and fortunately will not go for the payment of a 10% of the sales price.
This company has for contact number 0845 108 5491 and they have taken their time 2 months ago (!) to set up a website www.breakawaymarketingsolutions.com but they haven’t spent a lot of time on the design as it is actually a copy of another resale company.
Address for their offices as per the website:
Breakaway Marketing Solutions
C/O SJH Media Services Ltd
North Circular Road
Telf: 0845 1085491
On the website they claim they sold in 2010 for over 1.4 Million Pounds worth of timeshare and in 2011 they are about to break this record. If there is no record at all from them before June 2011 how did they do all this?
They also state a lot of timeshare resorts recommend their services. They just forget to mention which resorts….
Would a timeshare resort recommend a resale service with upfront fees knowing this goes straight against the New Timeshare Directive approved on the 23rd of February 2011?
Don’t think so…
It all sounds very nice, but bottom line is, the web is a copy and most probably the text about their track records and Resorts etc. is a copy as well.
The only “real” thing is the upfront fee and apart from real, this is against the law!
