Mindtimeshare has detected the alleged bogus ‘Class Action’ type company called Timeshare Resale/s Consumers Association – http://t-r-c-a.com, is using, in the homepage of the website, the logo of the international Timeshare Exchange company RCI.
Timeshare Resale Consumer Association is using RCI’s mark to create a likelihood of confusion, mistake and deception with the timeshare owners. The confusion created can be that Timeshare Resale Consumer Association is somehow associated, affiliated, connected, approved, authorized or sponsored by RCI.
As a result, the link falsely leads the timeshare owner to conclude that the web page http://www.t-r-c-a.com is affiliated, approved, or sponsored by RCI; to create such a false conclusion.
Obviously, they think they have more reputation doing that. The problem is that Timeshare Resale Consumer Association is not allowed to do that and RCI, of course, does not want to have any link with such a company.
Timeshare Resale Consumer Association is not active since 2001, as it claims in its very basic web page. It started operating late 2009. Despite its name, we do not have any evidence that it has ever acted as a “resale association”.
Mindtimeshare is aware of victims of the bogus discount holiday club, recently closed down, called Incentive Leisure Group (ILG) / Designer Way Vacation Club (DWVC) being contacted by this clear-cut bogus Class Action Scam, asking for upfront payments to translate documents into Spanish, as a Court Case against ILG/DWVC in Spanish soil was taking place.
It is highly likely that former staff of ILG / DWVC have set up this scam. Maybe even current staff working for ILG / DWVC (Timelinx) is behind it, as a way to continue milking its database of DWVC members, although we don´t have any evidences that would support this view.
