Over the past week we have received more and more messages from consumers stating they have been approached by the European Fair Trade Advisory Group (EFTAG) SL.
We knew EFTAG was cold calling timeshare consumers and we already placed a warning on our blog http://wp.me/p1kmoi-9G
But what is happening now is that EFTAG is particularly targeting Timelinx /ILG / DWVC members!
They call the ILG owners and these are told by the agent that he / she represents EFTAG European Fair Trading Advisory Group, asking if we would like to fly to Spain, they provide the hotel, to learn about a law suit that is being instigated against Timelinx. The reason for travelling to Spain is to sign papers, which cannot be done by fax. Apparently (so they tell the consumer) when Gary Leigh / Lee died he left £40mill, in assets which have been frozen, and will be used to reimburse claimants.
First question that comes up is “how did they obtain the customers details?” Has this something to do with the fact they were “neighbors” before when the offices were located in the same area in Fuengirola last year?
Law suit instigated against Timelinx by whom? By EFTAG?
That’s almost the same membership they already have, the DWVC one!
Please be careful when deciding to attend these kinds of meetings, and make sure you don’t sign or pay for something that isn’t clear at al!
Have you been called by EFTAG – European Fair Trading Advisory Group? Please let us know!
