As already mentioned in previous blogs, the latest trend seems to be Timeshare Disposal companies and here we go with a new one again, RIOCC in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol.
RIOCC or Real Estate Investments Ownerships Consultancy Center ,seems to be a rather new company, who has only just started cold calling timeshare consumers offering a “way out” of their timeshare.
The usual pitch about rising maintenance fees and the consumer having “grounds to put a claim” against his timeshare resort is used for the introduction call.
In order to get things started with RIOCC who seems to dispose of a large team of lawyers to handle these claims, the consumer will have to travel to Spain as only there it is possible to sign the correct paperwork.
Hotel expenses are paid by RIOCC and the consumer only has to pay the air fare for a 3 day trip.
With a bit more investigation we have found the website of RIOCC www.riocc.net which is available in English and Dutch.
The website was registered in February 2012
The address of the Real Estate Investments Ownerships Consultancy Center is on the Costa del Sol, Avenida Alcalde Clemente Diaz Ruiz Portal 3 number 2, 29640 Fuengirola, Málaga, Spain
Contact numbers +34 952 58 11 52 & +34 952 198 601
On the web it states; “Under the brand RIOCC, we can introduce you to a team of over 130 legal staff, offering a multidisciplinary service to a global audience, covering all the areas of legal practices, with a high level of specialization and local knowledge.”
That’s a lot of lawyers!!
And are they working for free or is there may be a cost involved the timeshare consumer will be informed about once he lands in Malaga for the 3 day trip?
Did we not hear this all before? We did and the consumers also, as most of the consumers called by RIOCC are also approached by NIMDA 21 CLAIMS in Benalmadena, with an almost exact the same pitch and about whom we wrote an article not so long ago: http://wp.me/p1kmoi-im
Worrying thing is that NIMDA CLAIMS is connected to ITRA & EFTAG which takes us straight to the Club Class Group of Companies.( http://mindtimeshare.me/?s=club+class)
If NIMDA 21 CLAIMS is the new baby of EFTAG in BENALMADENA, and ITRA on their website announces a new office in Fuengirola to be opened soon, could we maybe suggest RIOCC is this new office?
Have you been called by RIOCC from Fuengirola and invited for a trip to Spain?
Please let us know!
