August 2012 is over, a very busy and hot holiday month (in Spain) with of course the unforgettable event of the Olympics in the UK.
You would think that with all this going on consumers wouldn’t find the time to write or at least leave it till later..but no, this didn’t happen and the inbox kept on overflowing also in August. We do apologies for those who had to wait a little bit longer than usual for the answer to their queries as of course we were working with skeleton staff only.
But we still managed to reply to close to 800 emails, of which 500 were new inquiries. And surprisingly there was even time in August for new dodgy companies to see the light and start cold calling. 22 new companies were detected in August and that brings the total this year up to 196 new companies!
Activity on the blog didn’t see a down crease either and we closed the month of August with over 38.500 visitors!
We are aware that with this tremendous amount of followers on the blog, twitter and consumers who write to us regularly about the calls they receive, the dodgy companies are feeling quiet “uncomfortable” to say the least.
We have noticed that there seems to be an awful lot of name changes going on, office address changes, telephone numbers and even billboards taken down after the name appearing in our articles. Thanks to alert consumers who continuously keep us updated we are able to inform about all these changes and make sure we avoid as many victims possible of these dubious set ups!
This month we have also received a lot of messages from consumers who finally after a long wait of several months, got their money refunded through the Consumer Credit Act. Not only those who paid an upfront fee to a dubious resale, but a lot of consumers as well who obtained a full refund for money paid to Club Class and DWVC in the past. So don’t ever think the banks won’t refund, because that is not true and it is possible!
Congratulations to those who got their hard earned money back and for those who are still waiting or haven’t started yet, don’t give up and do go ahead as it will be worth the try!

If you have been called by a company regarding your timeshare, don’t keep it to yourself thinking we “already” know about them and you don’t need to tell us. Every single call is important for our investigations and we really appreciate all your help.
