The Diamond Marketing Group, another invitation to a meeting

A new consumer alert goes out for a company called The Diamond Marketing Group, who is cold calling consumers with an invitation to a meeting to discuss the disposal of their timeshare. They mention an Easy Exit System which will be explained on the day.

The issue with the cold call is again the same as always, they have the details of the consumer, contact details but also their membership details which put a big question mark behind the question of where did they get these details from? Never a legal source.

Diamond Marketing Group with address, Haygarth House, 31 High Street, Wimbledon, London, SW19 5BY uses a familiar telephone number 0208 816 8952

This number is the exact same number as used by Cedar Consultants a company who actually offered the same thing, a meeting for timeshare disposal that ended up being a presentation of a real estate project in Thailand! Read more: http://wp.me/p1kmoi-7S

Most probably the change of names has been done quickly in order to take away the effect of Cedar Consultants being mentioned negatively on the Internet and especially on our blog. They didn’t even take the time to request another phone number.

So this time they are called Diamond Marketing Group and they send off a confirmation letter for their meeting in Cheshire with map, directions and a list of Frequently Asked Questions such as “How can I be sure I am not attending another timeshare presentation?” well…they are most probably right there, it won’t be timeshare but it has all the looks of another investment chat and surely no disposal of your timeshare if you are not prepared to buy into a project in Thailand or other far away exotic destination..

Have you been invited to a meeting by Diamond Marketing Group?

Have you attended the meeting?

Please let us know!

    Thanks for the info on The Diamond Marketing Group, I had a cold call offering easy exit from my timeshare from this group. After reading all the excellant feed back on your site it was evident this was a bogus scam company. Initally they booked me an appointment in Rushden which I agreed to attend but cancelled a day before. Since they have contacted me again to re-arrange another appointment this time in Stratford upon Avon again I have agreed to go but have no intention of showing up. Maybe I will see how persistent they are. With out sites like this it is all too easy to be duped.

    Many Thamks

    I have a meeting scheduled for this Thursday, a second after I cancelled the first (so they are persistent too) I’m not going, I’m really fed up with people playing on others’ current financial situations – my maint fees just arrived for next year $570. I have approached the resort direct who aren’t interested in me “giving” my week back – so I know nobody is going to buy it!

    I had a call from Diamond Marketing Group today, who said that they had a buyer interested in out timeshare. I was very sceptical but booked in an appointment in our area for Saturday. They emailed me a letter, saying that there would be a reasonable offer for our timeshare on the day. Having been to these scam meetings before, I decided to search on the internet for info about them & came across this website. Just as I thought, yet another scam & pleased not to have to wasted my time in attending.

    Is this a new twist?
    A company called Asset Direct Ltd (EC1V 4PW) called to invite me to a meeting with a prospective buyer and a guaranteed no sales push.
    Well guess what – The company was Overseas Property Associates Limited (OPAL at CV37 6LW) who spent over an hour pushing the futile prospect of resale etc. then started to show how a YOOPHUKET organisation of high profile designers etc could give some form of future return. We stopped there and left.
    Luckily we only took a day trip to Sheffield but this seems to be 2 day a week effort for OPAL who advised us they have six companies like Asset Direct Ltd feeding them leads.

    • Hi Ian,
      Thanks for your message
      Indeed it looks like a new twist as you say. We hadn’t heard from this company before but most probably the inquiries will follow if they are actively inviting people to these meetings.
      Many thanks for letting us know, we really appreciate that.
      Regards
      Customer Care

    My husband and I have been contacted by someone called Adam from Diamond Marketing. They have sent a confirmation letter for us to attend a meeting in Northampton this Saturday regarding our shares/points. We decided to research their company and found your site. Thank you so much. We could have been another victim of this scam.

    Good Morning

    Please could you inform if Diamond Marketing Group are anything to do with Diamond Resorts – the company I have my time share with.

    Regards

    We have just returned from Spain having been referred there by TS Consultants. We have signed a contract with Property Developpment Consultants International by which we pay just over £8,000 for them to dispose of our 10,000 Diamond International timeshare points. It would take 5 years, at the end of which we would receive up to £20,000 (although the guaranteed minimum is £1,000). We don’t mind paying some money to be rid of our points. We paid £1,000 by credit card, and are due to pay the balance by cheque within the next fortnight. Having returned home and reflected on our decision, we want to get out of this contract, as we have read on the internet (since returnbing) that this could be a scam. We are consulting our solicitors here at home for advice as soon as possible.

    I have just received a telephone call from a lady with an American accent from Diamond Marketing. She told me if I was interested in selling my timeshare they would introduce me to a UK company seeking to purchase at a low but realistic price for holiday let. Both my wife and myself to attend a meeting at Hale near Manchester. When she telephones me again on Monday I will make it clear that no neccessity for a meeting as I can provide them with all the facts and details from 17 years of using and enjoying the location. They can then research and make me an offer. I will accept cash or Bankers Draft on a UK Bank, only then would I travel to Hale to collect.
    I don’t for one minute believe this enquiry will lead to a sale of my timeshare.
    After 17 years our lifestyle has changed and yes I would be interested in selling.

    I would be interested to hear from anyone who has had success in disposing of their Timeshare and hopefully point me in the right direction. I am not desperate and would continue to use for the next couple of years regardless of increasing maintenance charges.

    This is a company which I reported for cold calling, they said they had an office in Warrington where I could go and discuss the sale of my timeshare with a prospective buyer! They were asking for a marketing fee! The young man I spoke to seemed quite upset when I pointed out that if they required a marketing fee, then surely they should be dealing with prospective buyers for me. Needless to say I told them I wasn’t interested and that as they must have got my details illegally then I would be reporting them – which I did.
