Indeed another cold caller, Golden Sail Services who claim to be Timeshare reseller.
Golden Sail Services is based in Portugal, the address is Rua Bartolomeu Dias 8, Cerro Alagoa, Albufeira.
Phone number 0845 154 1745 and Email: email@example.com
They also run a website www.goldensailservices.com which was registered on the 9th of November 2012.
On the website from Golden Sail Services there are no company details such as Company Registration number, but in the “About Us” section it is mentioned that the owner is Simon Donovan.
Golden Sail Services builds up a nice “relationship” with the timeshare owner before getting into the real business.
Several calls are made to explain the have a possible buyer, the amazing sales price, there won’t be any upfront fees, the buyers are placing a deposit in a holding account, etc, etc.
After 3 or 4 calls finally the penny drops when they ask for a £1000 default guarantee.
Another name for what we still see as an UPFRONT PAYMENT and which is illegal and against the Timeshare Directive.
So yet again we need to alert about a timeshare resale company, this time Golden Sail Services as with the cold call and the upfront fee it doesn’t really look good at all.
