We have seen a lot of these before, and Anderson & Crane are not very different to the previous ones mentioned on our blog.
This company Anderson & Crane, based at Horton House, Exchange Flags, Liverpool, Merseyside L2 3PF, claims to be a marketing company with a “introduction service” between their client and timeshare owners, in order to appoint them for meetings to be held in different places in the UK.
Their website www.andersonandcrane.co.uk was registered in July 2012, and also states they are a mere marketing company and not the company that will eventually speak to the consumer at the meeting and do an offer for the timeshare.
Anderson & Crane are not registered at the UK Companies House.
So Anderson & Crane is cold calling from the telephone number 0151 601 9768, invites the timeshare owner to a meeting where supposedly they are going to be offered a way out of their timeshare, and this meeting is with another company of which the name is not mentioned on the web or in the confirmation email.
In the confirmation email from Anderson and Crane they do mention about the client “We are working on behalf of a client that specializes in the sale of overseas properties. However, they have also been very successful in assisting people in the disposal of unwanted timeshare or points.”
With the above details we have enough reasons to ask for precaution when dealing with this company as it is certainly not clear what the end purpose of this meeting is.
We suspect it will be a presentation of the overseas properties of this supposed client, and for those who are not interested in the investment a resale service or disposal service will be offered through yet another company.
Up to the consumer if they really want to “waste” their time on this, as the promised straight forward offer most probably won’t be as straight forward as promised by phone!
