Last October 2012, The Insolvency Service ordered the wind up all the companies, collectively known as Club Class, as they were all intimately involved in the marketing of the scheme in the UK.
Seven connected companies, which mis-sold membership of a concierge holiday scheme to the public while ostensibly conducting meetings to propose action against timeshare deals, have been wound up in the public interest by the High Court in London.

However, this order has not been an obstacle for Club Class to continue their dubious operations.
We are receiving complaints from consumers contacted by Club Class asking them the annual fee payment.
Who dares to pay an annual fee to a company that was wounded up by the UK Authorities!!!
This is part of the email received by consumers:
Dear Club Class Holidays Members
You are receiving this email because your required Club Class Holiday and Lifestyle Club Membership £55/£75 (contract depending) Annual Subscription payment is currently in arrears; and in some cases, may have been for several years.
The Club Class Holiday and Lifestyle Clubs are currently under new administration, and as a result we have been instructed to contact all existing membership holders that have outstanding annual subscription payments and request these arrears are cleared and their memberships activated accordingly.
Please fully understand that the clubs main beneficiary income is gained from the holiday and lifestyle services our members book and the payment of their agreed annual subscriptions and without this financial injection the club will eventually cease much to the detriment of our existing 100,000 plus client base.
As a Club Class membership holder you should already be aware that the payment of annual subscriptions is a requirement of your contract, having agreed to our membership conditions when you initially joined the club, and as a consequence you are expected to comply to this very important instruction.
Though your individual circumstances may differ, your membership status shows that you currently have subscription arrears having allowed your payments to lapse. Whether or not you believe otherwise, our records show that your membership has simply been suspended and all accrued debt remains in your liability and responsibility to maintain…”
