Abbey Services UK another cold calling timeshare resale company

Abbey Services UK, (not to be confused with Abbey Crest Consultancy http://wp.me/p1kmoi-8q ) appears to be a new entry on the cold caller resale company list.

Abbey Services UK with website http://abbeyservicesuk.co.uk/  does not appear in the UK Companies House as registered.

Their contact details on the web are a telephone number 0845 123 8018 and an email address admin@abbeyservicesuk.co.uk and reading through their lengthily story on how they are giving Service to the customers we found a mention they are based in Coventry but no postal Address is available on the web although they say they have different branches throughout the UK.

On the website it states: “Abbey Services UK stands on a reputation cultivated over 12 years of dedicated service conducted with the utmost integrity, efficiency and success.”  But this website was only created in April this year, the company is not registered, there is no postal address or office, so really where have they been these past 12 years?

Abbey Services claims they do not want any money upfront, just an hour of your time to attend a meeting where you will be made an unconditional offer for your timeshare. Only once the sale has been processed the commission will be charged from the purchase price.

Is this too good to be true? Why not?

Has anybody gone to a meeting of Abbey Services UK in the past 12 years or do you have an appointment for a future date? Have you been called from 08451238018 ?

Please let us know!

    i have just had a cold call from abbey.unfortunatly i was not home and my partner took the call.beware eveyone they are on the hunt again.

  3. Now this is what the internet was designed for, information!!

    Just had a cold call from Abbey trying to get me go along to a meeting and promising me they weren’t trying to get me to buy other timeshare or holiday bonds etc. However a quick look here confirmed my fears and I told them I wasn’t interested. I also had a call from a different company a few weeks ago and they were exactly the same. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name of the first company but they also showed up as suspect on internet forums.

    Thanks Mindtimeshare and all respondents, you are a great help.
    Andre.

    We’ve had an ‘experience ‘ of Abbey Services. They cold called and asked if we would like to sell our Diamond Resorts points. Note the word SELL. We were interested and so were told we’d need to go to have a chat about it. We live near Bristol. They offered Upminster, Essex or Exeter. We went to Exeter. Abbey Services were not there, they merely act as the introducers to the people we were to meet; at Exeter they were Ecoresorts Sales Limited. The meeting was more about seeing if we’d be interested in investing £60,000+ into a project to build a resort in Thailand and, if so, they would then be able to DISPOSE of our Diamond Resorts points. They said it was not worth their while just to deal with the Diamond Resorts points. We left somewhat annoyed at having wasted a day and the cost of getting to Exeter and back. A few days afterwards we had an e-mail from Ecoresorts wanting to know what we thought of the meeting, so we told them! Fair play to Ecoresorts, they sent a cheque for $50.00 to cover the travelling costs and a bit of the inconvenience.

    • Dear Martin,
      Thank you ever so much for your message and the explanation what the meeting was about.
      An investment project in Thailand…we’ve heard that one before! And no sign of the unconditional offer for your timeshare…
      Thanks again
      Kind regards

    Bet the offer will be between 0 (zero) and £150 , but if you join such and such or put down a deposit for or want to raise a mortgage for a superb place in Thailand they will give you a higher price..
    We were nearly hooked by the latter but then found that the mortgage was to be raised on our home property..on a pre build (planning permission and designed site ) oh yes if we wished to sell when all was complete we would surely get back our money and more as the value would have risen above the off plan value.
    Far too risk at our age..altough the prospective luxury apartments near Phuket looked super and numerous celebs visited the region on a regular basis.
    Flights going to get any cheaper ???
