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. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
