The Unique Solution, another meeting invite with unconditional offers.

The Unique Solution has been brought to our attention this week by various emails and comments on the blog.

This company, cold caller for a change, invites timeshare consumers over for a meeting where they will be offered a solution to their timeshare.

Their website www.theuniquesolution.co.uk which was registered on the 18th of November 2011 provides information on all kinds and claims they have over 20 years’ experience with timeshare. Maybe they could also explain where they got the consumers details from as these should not be public knowledge!

Their invitation reads: “Subject to an initial confirmation of your circumstances, during your appointment you will be made an unconditional offer and will also be presented with the opportunity of a unique alternative solution which will maximize the financial return for your timeshare”

Question is of course what the unique alternative solution will be which maximizes the financial return…an investment project in Thailand maybe?

And the unconditional offer the opportunity to inscribe the timeshare on a resale list?
Come on, have we not heard all this before? Even the invitation emails is an exact copy of all the others received by consumers from other similar companies!

Have you been invited by The Unique Solution with telephone  0203 582 9959

    I have also been contacted recently and despite saying I could attend in Tunbride Wells only I was offered appointments the length and breadth of the country except Tunbridge Wells. They even offered up to £100 towards my travel. I was tempted to ask for it up front. Needless to say I will not be attending. many thanks to this site for providing sound information on these scammers.

  2. i am glad i have seen this as i was going to a meeting tomorrow in Bristol i have been conned before and don,t want to waste any more time and am going to give my time share back to the company

    I have just received an email from Unique Solutions from Jacqui Priestley, The Unique Solution, Tel: 0203 582 9959, Email: info@theuniquesolution.co.uk, Website: http://www.theuniquesolution.co.uk stating “One of our representatives would like the opportunity to discuss the disposal of your holiday ownership with yourself. Therefore if you could provide us with a telephone number and an appropriate time to call you. I will be in contact in due course”.
    I would like to know where they got my work email address from and like other people I have been bitten by several timeshare resale companies in the past, and have decided to hold on to my timeshare for the timebeing. At least I can use it and so can my family and the maintenance is quite reasonable compared with some. Thanks for the advice.

    thanks for all your letters

    Thank goodness there is a site like this to warn of potential scammers. I have been contacted by unique solutions several times over the past month, Inviting me to their presentation in Livingston. I initially agreed to come to their presentation, but my suspicions were raised when they asked me to bring along my title deeds as well as proof of ID in various forms. After having contacting the RDO I cancelled the presentation appointment and have had their rep on the phone asking why I have cancelled. Needless to say I informed him that I did not believe they could help me in my timeshare disposal – he then asked where I had sourced my information on his company and tried further to pesuade to come to the presentation as there would be no obligation on my part whatever. 10 out of 10 for perseveerance. So be warned they never stop trying.

    The first expense one may experience with ‘The Unique Solution’ is the cost of the postage of unwanted correspondence. One will get a card through the door from the Royal Mail explaining that it is holding post addressed to oneself, the reason for the holding of the item being that too little postage was paid. If one receives parcels through the post on a regular basis, one imagines that, possibly the sender may have underestimated the weight, so one pays the extra postage and the £1 admin fee. And what does one receive? An invitation from ‘The Unique Solution’ to make an appointment to sell one’s timeshare, posted in the U.K. with no stamp on the envelope. So, it will cost one £1-36 to receive correspondence that one does not want. This does suggest that ‘The Unique Solution’ is actually nothing more than a ‘Unique Way To Be Conned Out Of Funds’

    I ahve been contacted, by telephone, by Unique Solutions, some two weeks ago. I was very suspicious. Read their email and noticed there was no postal address. Within 4 days of the intial approach they wanted me to attend a meeting locally. In my view too pushy and rushing things.When I asked about Diamond International (DI) approval to sell my points the first answer was waffle about how they are one of the top companies etc. 2nd answer was that DI members were buying the points. No one in their right mind would be doing this so I withdrew.

    the money they wanted was £60000 for a one bed investment

  9. Alan says:

    I have just been cold called by Unique Solutions.They were very professional and sent me an email to read and will call back in a couple of days to discuss an appointment in Edinburgh. This kind of scam has been used by other “companies” phoning me in the past. They have “clients who want to buy my timeshare2. I don’t think so. Please let me know if you know of these people and hopefully other owners reading this will be well warned off. Thanks.

  10. Karen Lane says:

    Great blog – Thank you for savings us from this ordeal. We thought maybe at last we had been approached by a valid company, after all the previous unsolicited phone calls we have received over the years (they sounded UK based and very genuine). We have been contacted 3 times by phone, and now have also received exactly the same e-mail (as above) from info@theuniquesolution.co.uk. They will now be very disappointed when I turn down the offer of a face-to-face meeting with their client in Hale! – without this great site, we may have just been fallen for another scan. Thanks once again.

  11. chris says:

    I too was contacted today saying same as above plus email with usual crap, as I expected after searching on net and found your website. Reading the above postings, I too will give them no more of my time. They sound the usual scum “con” merchants and wish they would try earning a decent living like the rest of us. Oh no, this would be too hard for the rats.

  12. chris says:

    Got the email as above from the below. It all sounds very attracive but as a result of this site and the infomration given it is in my deleted items.
    Thanks for the heads up. Chris Gradwell

  13. lynne says:

    I have just been contacted by them. I told them they were very unique as I no longer have the said timeshare and haven’t had for a while.He said they got the info off the “National Timeshare base” Thye also said I had recently spoken to another salesperson about this. What a joke! I did not waste my time listenong to their nonsense.

  14. Alan says:

    I too received exactly the same contact and email as Paul. They wished to arrange a meeting in Livingstone but I was reluctant to accept as they could not tell me why it had to be a face to face meeting. On pressing they said they were just the introducer and only get a fee if we turn up. I am based in Aberdeen and when I said I was not prepared to travel 3 hours there and 3 back without more details, he only offered to arrange a Saturday meeting to avoid me taking a day off work.
    I asked for some info on what value I coudl get, and he was non committal.
    I too asked where he got my details from and he suggested it was public info via a Timeshare site – I was not convinced and have rejected all offers so far and will continue to do so.

  15. Muriel says:

    So pleased that this site exists. We were contacted by Unique Solutions. Their email came today with ‘everything we needed to know about the company!’ The website is juvenile and says absolutely nothing; no postal address or company number. iInteresting to read what other owners have to say. Our gut feeling was correct, we will give this a miss.

  16. Anne says:

    Again, we were contacted by Unique Solution who have arranged an appointment for us at the Hale office next week. We had decided to cancel it as we do not have a good feeling about this company. I did also write a message to this site some months ago to ask if anyone else had been contacted by them and received one reply.
    It would be interesting to hear whether anyone has actually attended a meeting.

      We too have been contacted by this Company, first in the early part of 2011 when we attended the presentation. It was put forwards as a 1 hr one but it lasted around 4 hours before we walked out. However, they did take us to a nearby brassiere for a rather nice latté. The ‘investment’ they wanted was into partially built holiday property in the Caribbean islands. To fund this, when our reticence was taken as a lack of cash, they suggested quite seriously that we could get another mortgage on our house!!
      They were unwilling to supply details of how we could dispose our existing Diamond Resorts once we declined their offer.
      Typical con men in this field.
      We were again contacted by this company at the start of February 2012 (three phone calls altogether) and declined their offer to attend for another coffee.

        Peter
        Thanks for the heads -up as i thought another bunch of rip off merchants just the same as i have had dealing with in the past ,good for nothings praying on time share owners trying to make a sale (SHITS) that should get an honest living

    • geoff says:

      its a big con, we we traveled 120 miles to be offered £140 for our timeshare after a long talk about us to borrow £61000 to give to them to build a holiday bungalow in the Dominican,but they pay the payments over three year then after three years they would give us £12000. i do not know what planet they are on,it is not ours, waste of time and money which they said that they would refund us,but never heard a thing since

  17. Paul says:

    Hi,
    Yes were contacted by uniquesolutions and they sent their email with details. As we were caught out by United Online we were very suspicious about this one. So checked the web site and like the others does not give too much away. I did ask if they were members of TATOC to which I got a lot of waffle back about them just being an introducer etc…
    Email info received:
    Dear Mr Butcher,

    Many thanks for your interest regarding the potential sale of your timeshare or holiday ownership. As discussed, I have pleasure in enclosing a brief description of The Unique Solution and how we operate.

    The Unique Solution are a leading marketing agency specializing in helping timeshare and points owners dispose of their ownerships. We provide a professional service on behalf of a UK based company. Our client has helped hundreds of people escape from the timeshare trap and freed them from:

    ü Unwanted timeshare or points

    ü Increasing maintenance fees

    ü Unwanted calls or solicitations

    ü Annual fee arrears

    ü “Perpetuity trap”

    We appreciate that many people have spent years trying to sell in this difficult market and have found that they have spent thousands of pounds and achieved no success. Understandably this leaves them feeling frustrated and very sceptical of any positive suggestions regarding the disposal of their ownership.

    Subject to an initial confirmation of your circumstances, during your appointment you will be made an unconditional offer and will also be presented with the opportunity of a unique alternative solution which will maximize the financial return for your timeshare.

    We pride ourselves in having developed a hassle free service with our client to provide you with the best possible opportunity to successfully dispose of your ownership without the usual problems that plague the industry. Starting from the first moment of contact from well-trained, professional and polite staff, we will ensure that you fully understand all aspects of the service.

    There are no obligations attached, only plain speaking, good advice. Please rest assured that you will not be asked to buy into an alternative timeshare, holiday pack or point system. Nor will we ask for money to introduce you to our client. Unlike the majority of companies who “claim” to be able to sell timeshare or points, we can guarantee that if invited for an appointment with our clients you WILL receive a genuine and realistic offer for your ownership. We as a company will never ask you for marketing fees or any form of upfront payment to ensure you attend an appointment.

    The process of disposal from start to finish is quick, easy and designed to ensure you get the best possible return from the potential sale of your ownership. Below is a brief overview of this process.

    Phone

    · We take the details regarding your ownership. I.e. unit size, resort, week number etc.

    · We pass these details to our UK based client.

    Face to Face

    · Subject to the UK client’s approval, an appointment will be scheduled for you.

    · Appointments are made at 10am, 12pm and 2pm.

    · At the client’s offices you will receive a no obligation consultation. During this time they will assess your specific circumstances including the current status and future financial liability of your ownerships and explain how they may help you.

    With our dedicated and experienced staff we provide a first rate service and give the best possible advice to any query you may have.

    Assuring you of our best attention at all times,

    Sandra Thompson
