We have been very surprised lately to see that companies that have been mentioned in relation to Timeshare are now also approaching a different type of consumer.
Fast Line Legal Services was mentioned on our blog before (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-Dz )as they were cold calling Timeshare Consumers and offered their supposed legal services.
But it seems now they are also approaching owners of Apartments and other property purchased through MRI MacAnthony Realty International which has been closed down a couple of years ago and court cases are still running. You can read more on the blogs http://www.mri-sg.org/ and http://belegal.com/blog-by-antonio-flores/
We also received several inquiries about Sun Coast leisure. This company based in Marbella on the Costa del Sol is as per their website http://sun-coastleisure.com/ a Holiday Company that provides accommodation in different timeshare resorts around the world.
But they also have been cold calling MRI Customers about their properties and offering to place this property in a confused Fractional Timeshare Scheme. The idea of placing the property into Fractional could be working well if it wasn’t for the fact that Sun Coast Leisure asks the owner for an upfront payment of around €2000 to join this scheme.
Neither does it make a lot of sense that they mention prices for the apartments as these prices are considerably higher than the current market prices on the Costas in Spain.
Although we from Mindtimeshare concentrate purely on fraud and scams related to the Timeshare Industry, we found it necessary to highlight the above on our blog as we received numerous inquiries.
If you have been contacted by these companies, we would like to know. You can email us at email@example.com or place a comment on the blog.
