Reviewing the words from the BIS about the wound up of 7 Club Class Companies.

With the excellent news of the BIS ruling against Club Class, I have decided to review once again the wording of the press release and the explanations on how the decision was made.

I must say, I am very pleased with the press release, because it does not only provide the information about the 7 Companies of the Club Class Group, but even better it also mentions other related companies such as ITRA and their very dubious way of working.

Everything we have been reporting on Mindtimeshare for the past year, the mis-representation, the misleading invitations, the pressure put on consumers who attended the meetings….it is all there!

Have a look!

  • Club Class and ITRA mis-sold a holiday scheme.
  • Consumers were put under immense pressure.
  • What consumers were told was essentially worthless.
  • Club Class and ITRA were set up with the aim of duping consumers
  • The cash-back offers were the equivalent of a spot-the-ball competition.
  • Club Class and ITRA was using click putter for what was in reality the selling of an  illusion.
  • In addition to the mis-selling and lack of commercial probity which generated a significant volume of complaints, there was a lack of transparency within the operations of the companies. 
  • The companies’ officers also failed to co-operate with the investigation.

After reading the above, I would say that there is no longer any doubt that these companies have duped consumers intentionally!

Or as an Investigation Supervisor mentioned: “These companies were set up with the aim of duping consumers, who in some cases had already suffered from unfair timeshare deals, by using slick patter for what was in reality the selling of an illusion. There was nothing investors could gain from paying to these companies.”

After reading the above, is there any doubt left of what the intentions are of the Club Class Group of companies and ITRA when inviting consumers over to meetings where they supposedly will be informed about Compensation Claims and Class Actions against their timeshare / exchange companies?

And what is more, will there be any doubt whatsoever with any bank or Credit Card company to apply the Consumer Credit Act for those who claim money back of their Credit Card payments to any Club Class connected company, such as Leisure Alliance, ITRA, EFTAG and RIOCC?

    Itra have contacted me as I am on their list. I cannot see the harm in filling out the form, in case they do go to court, unless they charge court costs, that may be scary. I have no intention of falling for Club Class, they rang me shortly after this time, and I was burnt with that a few years ago. Do you want me to send you the form Itra sent for me to fill in, as an example?

      I also paid £1000 and asked for a refund. Was told the same story! I have not paid the balance and they will not get another penny out of me. I have put my case with the solicitor dealing with the insolvency of Club Class. My advice to you is don’t give them another penny.

    Have just spoken with a member of staff at the Insolvency Service based in Croydon. The contact telephone number is 0208 667 8134 0r ext 8124.Quate Court Number 007599-2011 High Court of Justice.
    Regardless of whther you bought this worthless holiday club membership through Club Class PLC either in the UK or overseas, any such member can be classified as an unsecured creditor and make a claim for any monies lost. The official I spoke to said they were awaiting confirmation of the appointment of an Official Receiver-at which point the claimant requests a PROOF OF DEBT form.
    I am told that whatever paperwork has to be prepared in connection with the appointment of a RECEIVERis not yet ready and it might not be until October 19th that such information becomes available. My advice is to wait until the 19th before making any contact with the Croydon office.
