PLAYA RESORTS, cold calling with guaranteed timeshare resale pitch..

An apparent new company Playa Resorts has started to cold calling timeshare owners and offers a resale of their membership, guaranteed but with the condition of a retainer fee of £995

Playa Resorts address on their paperwork is Office BM6276, London, WC1N 3XX (which is obviously a postbox) and telephone number 0845 287 1282

Their website was registered at the beginning of 2011 and there is no clear identification on who they are, the contact details give only a part of the postal address and there are no legal terms attached at all.

The fact they are not clearly identified, they cold call consumers and it is very unclear where they got the data from and they ask for an upfront fee which goes straight against the New Timeshare Directive approved this year.

With the above information we would strongly recommend all consumers who are approached by this company to be extremely cautious, NOT TO PAY any money and hang up better sooner than later!

If you have been called by Playa Resorts 08452871282 please let us know.
