UTS, Ultimate Transfer Services a resale company with upfront fee!

A new resale company by the name of Ultimate Transfer Services or UTS has been brought to our attention recently.

This company registered their website http://u-t-s.net/  at the end of March 2012 and as per this website they seem to be based in Mahon, Menorca, Balearic Islands.

On the website which lacks of any information about the company itself, there is neither a telephone number for contact and it all goes through a contact form.

But once they are talking to the consumer they do give out a telephone number which is:

0845 8620457

Ultimate Transfer Services claims to be “brokers” of the timeshare resale business and re-assure that all their employees have many years’ experience in the timeshare Industry.

Real shame is that they ask for an upfront fee though….which goes against the Timeshare Directive and as an experienced resale company they should be aware of this.

On the web they do mention something about the payment:

“Guarantees are placed with Third party service providers through Visa or Mastercard, this ensures that completion runs smoothly and that we only work with serious sellers and Buyers.”

Apart from the fact that asking for an upfront fee goes against the law, please note that when a payment is taken by a “third party” the bank will make a lot of problems at point of a refund request. If claiming a refund is not that easy as they say, having paid a deposit to a company which is not the same as UTS the bank will actually refuse the refund claim until you proof the connection between the 2 companies! So please be aware of this.

Have you been contacted by UTS – Ultimate Transfer Services from 08458620457

Please let us know.

    • Hi Bryan,

      Most probably next week he will want an upfront fee to start claiming, or not….

    Ik heb een voorstel gekregen van HOLIDAY RENTALS DIRECT (Torrox, Malaga, Spain) voor de verkoop van mijn Timeshare. Zij zouden een klant hebben voor die verkoop.
    Ik moet wel eerst een bepaalde som betalen. Is dit een eerlijke handelswijze ?

    • Hallo Marc,
      Bedankt voor uw bericht.
      Op deze site kunt u berichten vinden over dit bedrijf, en helaas geen goede berichten!
      Dus niet betalen want u ziet u geld niet meer terug en ook gaat de verkoop nooit door.
      Het is trouwens tegen de wet om geld vooraf te vragen!
      Groetjes
      Customer Care

    Hi again – Re Unleashed Deed Service & Unleashed Marketing :- I’ve now had recorded delivery letters to both their Reg’s Addresses returned as either ‘Not Known’ or ‘Gone Away’. Barclaycard still have not replied to my letter giving them the facts of these companies and asking what enquiries they make before lettting people / companies use their card facility. I wonder if I should contact Money Mail (Mail on Sunday ) newspaper and / or the Serious Fraud Office. These companies are seriously bent…!!
