We would like to share with you all the below testimonial from Brian, who has written to us with the great news that he has obtained a refund from his credit card company.
We are very grateful to Brian for his kind words and for the fact he has shared this good news with us. Congratulations on this superb news.
For all consumers out there who are currently “fighting” for their refund, please read below and keep the advice from Brian close: Do not drop the fight and don’t let them get away with this!
I feel now that DWVC (ILG) have gone into liquidation and are no longer trading I can let you know what happened to me.
I sent a correspondence to you at the beginning of February 2010 with reference to being ripped off by the Incentive Leisure Group (ILG). I too was trying to get shot of my old time share points that I had, and was scammed into parting with around £1,200.00p. I think I was one of the lucky ones as I managed to get all my money back, it was a long old slog but I got there eventually.
I had tried a number of avenues including The OFT but without much success, I eventual contacted an MP who was Consumer and Competition Policy Directorate in charge of The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. He sent me back a very nice letter laying out the law and what I should do, I followed his instructions and dropped his name into the correspondence with DWVC, the next thing I knew they were giving me a full refund but with a gagging clause, but since they have now gone I don’t see any reason why I cannot share this with you now.
If it was not for people like yourselves and others that I had contacted and told me not to drop it and fight on I may have been one of the unlucky ones who would have lost allot of money. Thank you.
Again thank you for your help and I hope this letter helps others to keep going and not let these type of people get away with this sort of thing.
