Half Moon Holdings the dubious timeshare resale company from Torre del Mar on the Costa del Sol in Spain, and with contact numbers 0844 822 8128 and 0844 279 3891 continues their cold call campaign and continues with their lies about the resale of your timeshare.
The warning we placed on the blog in April http://wp.me/p1kmoi-2j received numerous visitors and we know from the comments and emails received that many consumers have been approached by this company and unfortunately some of these consumers did pay the upfront fee of 1200€ they were requesting.
After corresponding with all the duped consumers we have a more clear picture of the all the tricks on the books from HM Holdings.
After paying the upfront fee the consumers realized that all off the sudden no more calls were received from halfmoon holdings. Some could not get hold of them and when they finally were able to speak to someone the “unfortunate” news was broken to them, the sale fell through as the buyer had difficulties raiding the money, someone in the family was ill, and lots of strange excuses more with the bottom line…no resale.
It is then when the consumer realizes the following clause is covering this part of the pitch:
Clause 3: “The Company act solely as agent and therefore cannot be held liable in the event that a purchaser fails to complete. Should this be the case The Company will continue to market the ownership for duration of the Contract term of one year.”
Claiming back the money paid to Half Moon Holdings by cancelling the agreement also brings up another trick from them covered by clause 4 in their paperwork. Once the first and supposed guaranteed sale falls through, Half Moon Holdings states in the contract under clause 4:
“During the Contract term The Company guarantee to provide an offer…” “The Company will be deemed to have complied with the terms and conditions of the Contract should this offer be refused..”
And this clause covers exactly their next step in their dubious activity. The timeshare consumer is called after a couple of weeks and Good News! There is another buyer for their timeshare! This time through a company / corporate buyer. There is one thing though, being it a corporate buyer they need another fee for processing the paperwork so please get your credit card out and pay us another 1600€!!!!!!!
That’s 2800€ in upfront fees all together!!
Ah….and if you refuse to pay…well Half Moon Holdings has a nice reply for this, as per clause 4 we have covered our part of the agreement….as you refused the offer..
If in April we asked “Have you been called by Half Moon Holdings?” our questions is now; “How many times have you been called by Half Moon Holding?”
Please let us know if you had any dealings with this company.
