Excalibur Marketing like many others dubious resale companies seems to have chosen for a “name change” probably to avoid consumers finding the negative comments and warnings on the internet.
Previously known as Excalibur Sales & Marketing (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-3b), they are now cold calling under the new name Excalibur Marketing although they haven’t changed their tune!
Their web address has changed and you can find them now on http://www.excalibursite.com a very basic website with few or less information.
As company information Excalibur Marketing claims to be “Registered in Malaga Spain” but would it not be more than logical to mention the registration number?
Their contact number on the web is 0871 231 1241 and Email: email@example.com
Their resale listing is surprisingly filled with Club Class, DWVC, Full Circle and Continent Connection Memberships. Yeah right!
Cold calling consumers with a guaranteed resale, they offer a very high price for the membership but to process the sale they need to take 1395 Euro’s from a credit card.
The agent from Excalibur Marketing states that the Office of Fair Trading stated on 31st October 2007, that if this did not materialise, we would be covered by our Credit Card.
Please don’t be fooled by this! First of all as per the Timeshare Directive from 23/02/2011 there should be NO Upfront fee request for a timeshare resale, and secondly if you claim a refund from a credit card payment you have to proof mis representation or breach of contract. After paying and the sale falls through, Excalibur Marketing will continue to market your timeshare as per their contract…so the claim for a refund will be in dispute!
