A new company has been brought to our attention by the name of Synergy Marketing.
This company seems to appear on stage after a Timeshare Consumer has been dealing with another dubious resale company and paid a deposit but then the sale falls through.
As per most of the dubious agreements made with these type of resale companies, there will be a clause that assures the consumer he will receive another offer for resale.
And there we have Synergy Marketing!
Synergy Marketing contacts the consumer with the great news that they have found a buyer for his Timeshare.
In their follow up email they explain it like this:
“We have successfully secured a sale through a corporate client based in Las Palmas. In order to make it more accessible for people to see them your meeting will be taking place in Alicante. They have requested a face to face meeting in order for all relevant security checks to take place, validation of ownership and also for signature purposes.”
But before booking flights and hurry to Spain, let us have a look at who they are.
Synergy Marketing claims to be based in Portugal! Yes indeed. Their address is Rua Das Cozinhas, Ao Castelo, Lisbon, 1100 – 181,Portugal
They do use a UK phone number though:+44 0845 542 0116
They also have a website www.synergy-marketing.net which was set up on the 18th of March 2013.
So we have a Portugal based company, that has found a Corporate client in Las Palmas (Canary Islands) and to process the sale they ask the Timeshare owner to travel to Alicante in Spain. How odd is that? Why not in the office of Synergy Marketing or at the Corporate Client’s place?
Let’s be honest, we have seen a lot of the same before. And travelling the whole way to Spain for a supposed guaranteed Timeshare resale has never actually ended up like that.
Timeshare consumers have found themselves in meetings for expensive Timeshare Disposal, Presentations of dubious Holiday Clubs of which the membership had to be purchased if you wanted your timeshare sold, etc etc.
Cold callers with guaranteed sales that need to be processed in foreign countries are not on the list of recommendable companies.
If you have been called by Synergy Marketing in Portugal with UK phone number 08455420116 for a resale in Spain, then please let us know.
