A new company for our cold caller list; Alpha Connexions supposedly based in Mallorca.
Alpha Connexions seems to be very new as their website http://alphaconnexions.com/ was only registered recently (02/04/2012)
On this website, apart from the usual text which seems to be copied over and over again between all resale companies, they also supply contact details which surprisingly do not include a telephone number! Fortunately there is always a helping consumer around, so we can give you the information anyway, the phone number is 0845 7755867
The Address is: Alpha Connexions, Carrer dels Selleters 26, 07141, Marratxi Mallorca, Isla de Baleares, Spain.
And email: email@example.com
The modus operandi is as follows, they contact the consumer on a cold call and go over the usual pitch of what he wants to sell, we will look for a buyer, etc.
After 2 days they call back and surprise surprise they have spotted a buyer! Even their financial department is checking out the buyer but they will also need a “guarantee bond” from the seller in order to make sure all will be ok. This bond of £1300 will be held in an account until the timeshare owner sends off his deeds and he receives the money for the sale in his account.
Yes, here we go again! For some reason these companies don’t get tired of this same pitch.
Well we won’t get tired of publishing alerts, and telling consumers over and over again it is against the law to request an upfront fee!
Adding this up with the cold call and the fact that our investigations have already revealed there are connections with other similar dubious resale companies; we certainly do not recommend this company!
