Did you receive a resale offer from Secure Transfer Holdings?

Secure Transfer Holdings is currently on a cold calling campaign with great offers for timeshare owners.

The cold call from Secure Transfer Holdings is to make the timeshare owner aware of the fact there is a buyer waiting to purchase their membership, and on top of it this buyer is willing to pay good money for it.

Sounds too good to be true? It does and it certainly is!

Secure Transfer Holdings soon comes up with the real issue of this successful sale and that is the “default guarantee” of around £1300 which needs to be paid upfront.

Ouch! They are as kind though to explain to the timeshare owner that he should pay by Visa or Master because if the sale falls through he can claim the money back from his bank / credit card provider.

Secure Transfer Holdings has a website www.securetransferholdings.com which was registered at the end of October although they mention on the web they have been around since January 2012.

The Telephone number for Secure Transfer Holdings is 0845 557 7678

As per the website the address is: Davis House, 69-77 Davis Street, Croydon, Surrey, CR0 1PQ

Although the website explains that deposits are taken to “avoid timewasters”, Secure Transfer Holdings cannot deny the fact that deposits were banned from Timeshare resale procedures as per the European Timeshare Directive approved on the 23rd of February 2011. Asking for a deposit is as simple as that, against the law!

    I received a call, they knew so much about me it was unreal, Louise Clarke, who changed her name often! Is very good at being blaza about the whole procedure is an excellent con artist! Karen Bourne may well be the same person… She’s the admin for the scam…..
    They use GEELINE Documentation services that’s tied into there scam, they operate from a flat, 3rd floor 86-90 Paul street, which is also Liverpool st!! Makes you wonder if the postman is bent too! and use a pay as you go mobile 07513951958. They never answer by the way.
    The master plan is GEELINE’s 3rd bullett point on the paperwork you receive. “No recourse to us” and refer you back to the marketing agents but by this time your number is not verified your email are bounced back …. The contract isn’t worth jack s**t!
    You can see them now totting there fraud up over a glass of wine knowing they’ve scored a big one by introducing a third party . They have it covered as they operate as 1!
    Don’t be fooled by the resale it’s illegal for any cold calling company to offer this service.
    Report it to the fraud line And local police, if we all complain we can at least make it harder for them to operate and make it common knowledge this is a fablous scam that’s got the banks hands tied !

    I own the business which operates from 4th floor, Lawford House, Albert Place, London N3 1RL. I am sorry to have to say that there is no such business as Secure Transfer Holdings registered at this address. Nor in fact is there a company of that name registered in the UK. It would appear that this is at the very least a mistake or, in all probability, some kind of scam. We have tried to contact the business through its email and telephone number, all to no avail. Under these circumstances I can only recommend that all purchasers and vendors of time shares tread very carefully as far as this business is concerned and under no circumstances should they hand over any kind of advance fees or deposits as suggested on their website. I only hope that after the bad press garnered by many operators in this sector of the property market, potential clients have already learned to be sceptical at least, and preferably deeply suspicious.

    We have been approached by the Secure transfer team a Mr Harry Burton and said a Mr & Mrs Morris would give us £5200 for our appartment.
    After reading the above comments, If and When he calls back we will tell him where to go.

    We have been cold called by this company however the address is in Finchley London. As per the original conversation in which they offered to re-sell the club class timeshare, they have now ‘sold’ our timeshare and will deposit our money in the bank, however they need a deposit to enable us to proceed just in case we are are ‘bad’ people who will run off with their money – perish the thought!!
    They have a website called http://www.securetransferholdings.co.uk
    Thought you might be interested, we certainly are not!!!

    I have just been called by secure transfer holdings and before I was going to part with £1300 for deposit and commitment I thought better research into it. I’ve been offered about £5k more than I purchased it, I’ve been offered nearly £9. I told the rather persistent guy that I would need to think about it. Is this a sc** do they really have a buyer waiting?

    I was approached by secure transfer holdings with an offer for my club class holding, and they said that there was a client in there fuengirola office who had offered £9500:00 for it, (this is £7500 more than I paid origionaly ) and that all I had to do was give them £1450:00 as security against me not giving them the signed documents that could be transfired to said client and that when the deal went thro’ I would receive my security plus the £9500:00 and that this would take about 4 weeks. When I told them that I would be in in fuengirola the next day and I was staying for 5 weeks and that I would have the signed documents with me, and that I could drop them off and pick up my money preferably in cash, they said it could not be done like that. When I pointed out that this was the most secure way to get documents to them they still said that it could not be done this way.

    I then told them the best con men were very believable and that they were very very believable they put the phone down.
