Another newbie on the block with old tricks like cold calls and upfront payment requests!
Nowon-line www.nowon-line.com, telephone 0845 0758115 claims on their website to have been helping timeshare consumers selling their membership for the past 10 years! That’s quiet some effort taking in account their website only came “online” in February this year.
Allegedly based in Mallorca, Contact address: Ramblas De Ducs 13-1 07003, Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Tel. (UK) 0845 0758115, it looks like they started operating this early April, cold calling timeshare & points owners with firm resale offers, asking for an upfront “refundable” payments of up to 1300€
Reading further on their web, they state they have a large database of people selling and wanting to buy timeshare. It is very surprising though that there are only 4 supposed pictures displayed of timeshares for sale. So how would somebody know what is for sale?
Another worrying fact is that on the main page of the website there are logos displayed from large timeshare and exchange companies, creating a sense of credibility and security as if this company is backed up by these prestigious companies. Well, they are NOT! We have checked with these companies and we can assure you they were not aware of this “unauthorized” usage of their logos!
What we have heard from the concerned timeshare owners (who paid), is that once the resale offer is accepted, and the upfront payment is made, the timeshare seller receives a resale contract, which does not mention the firm resale offer made by phone at all and instead he has signed up for a marketing agreement for a certain period. Within this time period there is a promise of one resale offer – i.e. maybe a meeting with the “potential” buyer, i.e. a holiday club using a cash back offer as “honey trap” along, or even a Class Action using also a holiday club membership as a trade in, including also a cash back scheme.

How do they actually market your timeshare if they don’t even display it on their own web?
Please note that this company is not registered at either the Spanish or British Companies Housing and the phone number they use is of the common type that can be switched through to any line in Europe, in this case most probably Mallorca.
Our advice! Think twice before getting your credit card out of your wallet for a guaranteed sale. With this company and any other company that asks for an upfront fee!
