    Hi, some good news at last, I was contacted by many companys saying they could claim back the money i paid to ILG, I thought i would have a go at doing it myself via section 75, I paid a deposit to ILG in April 2008 on my virgin credit card of £1190 then settled the rest at a later date, £5995 in total, i started the ball rolling with virgin section 75 team in November 2012, to cut a long story short they said as ILG was trading for the first 2 or so years and i managed to get rid of the timeshare with no more maintenance to pay i could claim 66% back, I recieved £3950 paid straight into my bank today.So all i can say is its worth trying, all virgin needed was proof i had paid the settlement amount, so had to get the bank statement from 2008 showing the settlement payment, and some copys of paperwork i had from ILG. I am still waiting for my reclaim payment i have had notification from reclaim saying my claim is good and correct and will be paid on 20th Dec 2012 (not holding my breath but who knows!!!!) I will let everyone know if i get anything. Its nice to get some money back after all the paying out!!! and i did it myself so didn’t have to pay any commision to anyone.
