CASE explains as follows:

“It has come to our attention that the Asian Fair Trade Advisory Group (AFTAG), theSingapore office of an organization named International Timeshare Refund Action (ITRA), isreferring existing timeshare members (consumers who signed timeshare agreements), to one or more companies to assist in obtaining financial restitution in respect of the Timeshare members’ existing timeshare contracts.

Different Newspapers in Singapore have published related articles as obviously this is important news for the Asian Timeshare Industry:  – 16th April news

This news is important also for the European Timeshare market as obviously on this end of the world we are dealing with the same companies or with the so called  “sister” companies. Warnings have also been published not only by us but also the ECC’S in different European Countries.

We from this end cannot be more satisfied with the fact that this alert has gone out, as we have been observing for a while now how ITRA and EFTAG (AFTAG)  were making their way into the Asian market and it was only a matter of time before consumers would realize that things weren’t exactly as pictured at the meetings!

By reading the alert we can see that their “Modus Operandi” is exactly the same in Asia as in Europe and timeshare owners have started to complaint after realizing they paid a lot of money for a contract that isn’t fulfilled and in certain cases not even possible.

How many more victims’ do we need worldwide before serious action will be taken against these dubious set ups?

We from Mindtimeshare offer all our help and support to all the consumers who need this, both in Europe and Asia, and we invite you all to write to our customer care email address in case you have questions. (

For those who haven’t been reading all our articles published on both ITRA and EFTAG please refer to the following links for a resume: &

    We were contacted by spms ltd in norwich. told us they had a buyer and conned us out of money. We were lucky to get 65% back but only by constantly phoning and contacting the police. I would advise people not to use this company and not to give up hope getting back your money
