Silver Lining Security, a straight forward bogus resale company!

New cold caller for the list is Silver Lining Security, a dubious resale company that seems to have started with their calls only recently.

The website from Silver Lining Security was registered on the 27th of September of 2012, that is 2 weeks ago as we write this article. The registrant of the web has been concealed which is always a bit strange for a company with “nothing” to hide.

The terms & Conditions from Silver Lining Security – have been taken from a U.S. Bed & Breakfast business, Altamont Old Stone House –

Contact details for Silver Lining Security are Head Office: Enterprise House, Aber Park, Flint, Flintshire, CH6 5EX. Telephone: +44 161 408 2678; E-mail:

This resale company is NOT listed with the UK Companies House, and the address provided seems to be long to a kind of business centre situated in Wales.  It is likely that this company is not even based in this location.

What we know from concerned consumers who have contacted us, is that Silver Lining Security is cold calling mainly Club Class Concierge Members, offering to them unrealistic resale prices for their holiday club ownerships – i.e. particular case offering £14.000 – and requesting upfront refundable deposits.

On top of that, the agent calling from Silver Lining Security seems to be aware of previous dealings from the consumers with other dodgy resale companies such as Beauregard Marketing. This is certainly a very worrying issue as Silver Lining Security might be connected to those companies or have obtained client lists from these companies!

If you have been approached by Silver Lining Security on phone number 01614082678 and received a resale offer for your timeshare membership, please let us know.

    I am ashamed to say I was caught by Silver Lining Security and paid £980 “up-front” for what seemed to be a good deal.Needless to say I soon realised that I had been conned. I approached my credit card company who,as gesture of goodwill, gave me a refund.Thanks to mindtimeshare for their help and support.

    I have just been called by this ‘Silver Lining Security’ company asking if I wanted to sell my holiday club membership, this is the first time I have been called by this company and surprisingly the caller sounded exactly like a guy from West Management ( another bogus reseller) he strongly denied the name change he is using, but after spending over an hour with him on the phone from West Management it was definitely him, after he was sacked from WM he called with a new name from a solicitor’ firm who were taking WM to court in Spain, same man again.

    He must just love conning people

    We were approached by Silver Lining Security whom offered £14,000 for our timeshare. We smelt a rat when they asked for a holding deposit of £1,500. Thanks to your website we will not be taking up their offer.

    I had a cold call this lunchtime telling me they had a buyer for my membership of DWVC , they said this membership was now linked to some golfing club and they had a buyer offering £10,000 for my membership but they wanted a bond of £1000 from me first. I unfortunatly bought membership into the DWVC when getting rid of my timeshares through the Incentive Leisure Group, I have never used DWVC and never will. This is the second call I have had from Silver Lining Security , I suspected it was fradulent the first time and am glad I took no action . These people should be shot
    Thanks for your article , Mike K ( 26/10/12 )

    Had a call from Silver Lining today.
    They told me I had paid a deposit of £1200 some months ago and they now had my money sitting in an account waiting for me.
    All that was required now was for me to pay a refundable fee of £1200 and the money would be in my bank in no time at all. (yer right)

    I asked for the company information which was given as follows:
    Silver Lining
    Flint Enterprise House
    Aber Park
    CH6 5EX.
    Phone: 0161 408 3678

    Now being a silly old man that I am I always thought that a phone dial code of 0161 was for Manchester, silly me and I only live a couple of miles from the place given.

    I offered to meet them with the money in my hand and a camera crew from the TV company but sadly they didn’t want the publicity and refused to meet me, shame because I feel they could easily have made a name for themselves on TV. Not a good name I admit but still a name.

    All of a sudden the phone went dead so I immediately called the number.
    The answer machine said there was nobody there right now which was such a shame as I have all this money and nobody to give it to.

    I then called a company I know to be at that Enterprise House who confirmed there was no other company there.
    How Strange !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Stumbled on above while trying to research Palm HolidaySolutions. Was sent an e-mail by Silver Lining offerering £3,600 for my timeshare and asked for a £1,200 security guarantee. No guarantee for me as they wanted my card details. Also having had many other such calls in the past was very suspicious. Reading the above posts has only confirmed that I should have nothing more to do with them. How can these people expect anyone to hand over card and bank details when you have no idea who you are speaking to on the telephone – just becasue we once bought a timeshare do they think we are all buttoned up the back!!

    Another bogus telephone company promising to get you money back today BARKER & SIMM FINANCE run by a guy called MARK JENNINGS based at St Marys Axe London EC3 ATP all I had to do was send a moneygramme in the sum of £830 to a lady in Spain and in the morning the courier would bring my cheque to be banked on Minday and cashed on Tuesday because they said Half Moon Holdings has had all Assetts and Data base seized by the Spanish courts and all our money is waiting to be sent to us. Sorry but this is not going to happen they are what is known as a ‘Boiler Room Scam’

    Good Luck all

    Kate says they sounded very knowledgable about our DWVC membership including numbers of contract. Very official sounding “finance lady” nearly got me but I spotted these messages so be warned everyone

  9. norma says:

    I recieved a call today from silver lining security and was also asked to place a bond for 1.300 pounds to release a payment of 13.300 pounds. after giving a debit card no which only had a few pounds in, I was called again to be told the payment was declined which I was aware it would so I have told them not to call again as I am not interested the strange thing was that all the calls came from two people but two calls were intrenational , one withheld and two unavalible, which rang alarm bells

  10. Lynne says:

    I was called today by Silver Lining Security. They claimed to have a group buyer for my DWVC membership for £10,000. A holding bond of 10% was required. Being on the receiving end of many a cold call, all exactly the same, I am completely immune to this and declined their offer however, I did check out their website and it was then that I found your site and this report for which I thank you. I have reported them to TATOC who reminded me that it was illegal for them to ask for any monies up front. I have also posted this on TimeshareTalk to make as many aware as possible.

  11. david blewett says:

    I have just been contacted by Silver Lining Security.They sounded very professional and very believable that was until they asked for a default guarantor of £900. That made me suspicious and thanks to your website and my own experiences with timeshare fraudulent companies I have opted to withdraw my involvement.
    Thank you for your article
