Please be aware of another Class Action outfit just set up in Malaga, Spain, under the name of the European Fair Trade Advisory Group (EFTAG) SL cold calling timeshare owners offering to them joining a compensation claim against their resorts, and requesting them to attend a meeting in Malaga. The EFTAG also offers to their potential clients to help them to get out of their timeshare liability.
As a timeshare owner if you are contacted by the European Fair Trade Advisory Group, before you decide whether to accept their services or not, you should know the following FACTS:
- The European Fair Trade Advisory Group (EFTAG) openly acknowledges having as STRATEGIC PARTNER the European Class Action outfit The International Timeshare Refund Action - ITRA – as it is clearly stated in the homepage of the website of EFTAG’s sister Class Action outfit in Singapore, the Asian Fair Trade Advisory Group – www.ftagasia.com/welcome.html
- The STRATEGIC PARTNER of the European Fair Trade Advisory Group, the International Timeshare Refund Action – ITRA – had its TV Ad in the UK banned by the UK Advertising Standards Authority in January 2011, as it was MISLEADING BY OMISSION, because “the ad did not make clear that it was offering another product in addition to the opportunity to join the legal action” and “attendees were offered an alternative to a timeshare product by ClubClass”. ASA did not say it clearly in the adjudication, but the other product offered as the get out strategy was the holiday club membership, Club Class Concierge.
3. The timeshare resale firm ETOO, the European Timeshare Owners Organisation, a FOUNDING MEMBER of ITRA, when the latter it was the International Timeshare Resale Association, before it morphed into the International Timeshare Refund Action in late 2009, had its TV Ad in the UK, banned by the UK Advertising Standards Authority in August 2008, as it was MISLEADING.
As a timeshare owner, cold called at home out of the blue, by a company just legally set up this May in Spain, the European Fair Trade Advisory Group SL, which does not have any business track record whatsoever which claims having as a STRATEGIC PARTNER ITRA, and knowing that the Advertising Standards Authority has banned in the past two TV Ads for being misleading, one of ITRA, and another of one of its founding members, ETOO, when ITRA was a resale organisation, we truly urge caution before accepting any kind of legal representation, by the European Fair Trade Advisory Group, listed at the Spanish Companies House , as provider of promotion services for the real estate industry, and not as provider of legal services.
Finally, be aware that Spanish listed companies providing legal services are forbidden by law to cold call their potential clients!
