Mr. David Hill an Investigation Supervisor with the Insolvency Service describes the practices of the seven Club Class companies wound up simply as a SCAM: “This action shows that The Insolvency Service will investigate and close down companies set up to SCAM the public”– http://goo.gl/RWu70 .
The Insolvency Service has left a door open for Club Class´ victims: “All public enquiries concerning the affairs of the companies should be made to: The Official Receiver, Public Interest Unit, 4 Abbey Orchard Street, London, SW1P 2HT. Telephone: 0207 637 1110 Email: email@example.com . “
So now that the spotlight is on the seven companies wound up – i.e. Club Class Concierge Ltd; Bridge View Consultants Ltd; Club Class concierge plc, Club Class International plc, Club Class Holdings Ltd, Club Class Corporation plc, Club Class plc – and the direct implication of The International Timeshare Refund Action (ITRA), we urge consumers who have been victims of Club Class / ITRA to approach the British Authorities.
British Timeshare owners who ended up purchasing a very costly holiday club membership due to the sheer misrepresentation that took place at ITRA´s meetings, as citizens with consumer rights, and also as taxpayers, should approach the British Authorities and request to know what further actions they will be taking against the people behind these companies. Basically victims want their money back!
Suggested questions to ask the British Authorities, as a result of the London High Court ruling:
Will the British Authorities force the closing down of the following websites or at least prevent that British nationals could access to them from UK soil?
Club Class Concierge – www.clubclassconcierge.com
Club Class – www.clubclass.net
Club Class Corporation – www.clubclasscorporation.com (down at the moment)
Will the British Authorities act against the company directors of the seven UK & Seychelles wound up companies?
Will the British Authorities take any formal legal action against ITRA – International Timeshare Refund Action – mentioned as an integral part of the seven Club Class wound up companies? Already UK ASA had been quite clear about ITRA´s misleading practices in January 2011 – http://goo.gl/rHNUy .
ITRA officially operated at least until recently from offices located in Chester, Slough, Bristol and Lichfield (further info) – http://goo.gl/FaH8T .
Will the litigation firm acting on behalf of ITRA in the UK drop them as a client? Will the British Authorities inform the litigation firm about the ruling?
Will the Official Receiver ask the law firm Edwin Coe LLP to stop acting on behalf of Club Class demanding UK nationals who purchased any Club Class Holiday Club Memberships to pay the outstanding money owed for their memberships?
Will the British Authorities request Club Class to stop requesting the payments for the due or overdue annual fees of Club Class Concierge or other Club Class Holiday Club Memberships?
Will the British Authorities coordinate efforts with the Gibraltarian Authorities to fix responsibilities of all the Club Class companies registered there?
Open front in British soil:
If the British Authorities seriously think about truly closing down the whole Club Class group of companies, and save British nationals of falling into new Club Class schemes, they should concentrate now their energies on the following companies operating from British soil. Schemes run by the very same people behind ITRA / Club Class, and promoting Group Litigation Claims, Timeshare Disposal Services, Holiday Club Memberships, etc.

Open front in Spanish soil:
We urge the British Authorities to seek collaboration with the Spanish Authorities, as the headquarter of Club Class / ITRA is based in Costa del Sol, Malaga.
Unless a front is open in Spain, Club Class will continue operating, and targeting with its various products to British consumers both in the UK, and Spain.
Tenerife is also a hot spot of Club Class operations – http://goo.gl/uuoSp .
