Have you been cold called by the Martin Bower Group?

The Martin Bower Group is a cold calling Timeshare resale company based in Spain.

They cold call Timeshare consumers with the story that they have a of bank of clients from their marketing operations in Eastern Europe whom wish to purchase pre-owned holiday ownership products, as this allows them to exit their country more easily than applying for standard invitation Visas.

That’s a new one!

In order to materialize this sale though the timeshare consumer is send a lot of documents he needs to sign. Strange thing though is that these documents don’t mention a resale, these documents are a purchase agreement for a membership in Eclipse Vacation club!

Together with this purchase agreement there is also a Tax verification form that needs to be filled in and surprise surprise a payment request for an upfront fee of  £1800 in concept of taxes!

When asking the admin department of Martin Bower Group for explanations, they state the Eclipse Vacation Club membership is actually a free gift…

Would you sign a purchase agreement for a free gift?
