Absolute Solutions, a timeshare disposal with a strange offer

Maybe you have been cold called already by this Timeshare Disposal Company with the name of Absolute Solutions Ltd (Absolute Solución SL or Absolute World Solucion SL in Spanish).

They have started recently and we have received numerous enquiries about these cold calls and the offer from Absolute Solutions to send an agent over to the house of the timeshare owner.

The website used by Absolute Solutions http://absolutesolucion.com/ was set up last September 2012. There is not a lot of company information available on the web, neither is there an address for their established EU Centre in the UK with the “highly” experienced staff.

From the paperwork they send out, it does seem though that the main address is in Spain: Calle San Salvador nº 2/4 Bajo, 29640 Fuengirola, Malaga.

Tel.: +34 951 203 928 or  +34 933 939 180 (Spain); U.K. Tel.: +44 203 051 84 63, +44 203 411 86 24+44 203 582 76 39 and 0203 637 1033

They offer a disposal service which would consist of transferring your timeshare into the name of Absolute Solutions. The agreement though for this disposal is set up in a very strange way. The timeshare owner actually purchases a 12 month membership of a discount club called Vacancy Rewards Program and as additional service the existing timeshare is “sold” to Absolute Solutions.

Absolute Solutions emphasizes that it is not a resale company, and that it does not charge upfront payments. It “specializes in taking people out of timeshare”

But the agreement is set up in such a way that the timeshare owner “sells” the timeshare to Absolute Solucions for the symbolic amount of 1€ and then they supposedly will transfer the timeshare into their name. After that the timeshare owner will no longer be liable for any maintenance fees.

But who guarantees this?

For this service the timeshare owner pays £985 upfront (as per the contract he pays for the membership!) and when the resort confirms the transfer of the timeshare another £985 is due to be paid.

Absolute Solutions is cold calling, so mentioning Data Protection on the web is a bit cynical as they haven’t complied with this in the first place. Where did they get your information from?

Then Absolute Solutions offers a disposal service with an upfront payment, but the agreement does not really cover a disposal service at all and is for the purchase of a Vacancy Rewards Program.

We certainly would recommend being very careful with this one.

Have you been cold called by Absolute Solutions from 02030518463, 0234118624, 2035827639 or Absolute World Solución in Spain at 933939180 or 951203928?

    Absolute Solutions/Absolute Solucion or what ever they like to call themselve will be at the Copthorne Hotel in Cardiff at 2pm on Friday 11th April. They have said they do not buy or sell timeshares – so why are they saying all we would have to pay is an up front transfer fee? Why do they need us to bring our ownership deeds, passports, copies of lastest mainenance and utility bills? To what purpose would these documents be put? I did not come up on the down train, so I will not be attending.

    Did they not give you a 14 day cooling off period. It is law in this country. Talk to Citizens Advice, they can help. If you paid by card your bank can help and be careful they don’t take any more. I have had an experience where another company tried to take a second instalment without my knowledge but fortunately it would have taken me over my credit limit so my bank phoned me!

    Hi , Both my wife and I attended a “informal meeting” in a hotel in Manchester on Sunday March 10th. The only informal part was that we held our meeting in the reception/ coffee bar.They asked for £4600. As a sweetener they were prepared to take half on the day, and the balance on completion . Because I was unable to “track down” a UK office, we walked away. They pray on couples like us that are so desperate to get rid of our Diamond points, that we are almost willing to trust anyone that are “friendly”, but thankfully once they wanted money handed over on the same day, we came to our senses . Has anyone out there any advice on how we can get rid of our Diamond points. I am willing to pay the fees for one year, if some one takes them?

    I was just cold called by this company. They said I had expressed interest in the past to sell and they are following up so thats how they tried to allievate the “cold calling” portion of the scam. Strange but only yesterday another company called to buy my timeshare! The polite girl that phoned said no selling or buying of timeshares and no upfront fees! Rubbish I said and I told her she needed to sit in on one of these ‘consultations’ her fellow workers give and see what really goes on. That transfer fee is an upfront payment and disposing of it is selling it! She even tried to tell me that it was just a friendly chat over coffee in a hotel! What, not in an office where business should be conducted??? Its not her fault, she’s been kept in the dark and only markets the scam but I hope I gave her something to think about!

    I too have been cold called by these guys and agree with the above. They said they were not buying but would take the timeshare off my hands. Couldn’t see the distinction myself and they couldn’t explain it. Nor could they tell me what their fees would be – ‘varies from resort to resort’. Bargepole comes to mind.

  6. Dorothy says:

    They cold called me today. When I asked them if they checked the TPS List (Telephone preference service) before they called they said, “we must have given our timeshare provider permission to use the telephone number and this overrides the TPS”
    I told them this was rubbish and in any case I don’t have a timeshare. They seem to be stunned after that and have nowhere to turn.

    They are definately a dodgy company – Keep clear from them.

  7. Charles says:

    This company is still operating bu4t now invites you to to a meeting at a different location.

    I have just been called by these people on the 02030 number shown above.
    I was very suspicious I have to say.
    They told me they could send one of their legal advizors to see me at home tomorrow as they’ve got ‘2 available slots for an apponitment left in your area.’
    As tomorrow is a Saturday I fobbed them off saying I was away all weekend.
    The rep sounded disappointed and said that they would keep me ‘on the back burner until we’ve got something else in your area’, but she couldn’t say when that would be.
    That doesn’t sound very professional to me.
    Seems like another sc** outfit after my money – I’ll avoid this lot!

  9. Konrad Machej says:

    We have been approached by this company. I was suspicious because, despite purporting to be a UK organisation, their website address spelt “solution” in Spanish. Also, they maintain that liabilities for paying maintenance charges can be passed on to relatives upon inheritance. I have been advised by my solicitor that liabilities and debts cannot be forced upon those who inherit. Thank you for the further information. I shall steer clear of them.
