Continent Connections has been busy lately with sending out Membership fees requests to all their members.
Slight problem though is that a lot of these “members” are not even aware of this membership and less of the obligation to pay the annual fee!
So what has happened here?
From what we understand, there are not many members of Continent Connections Discount Holiday Club that actually bought into this membership just from scratch.
The story is that most of the consumers were dealing with a dubious resale company such as Viva Connect, paid them an upfront fee for a resale that was almost completed…but then the sale fell through.
Continent Connections then contacted the Timeshare consumer and claimed to have buyers for Holiday Memberships and if the Timeshare owner would change his timeshare into a Continent Connections membership, the sale would be imminent.
Some Timeshare Owners were not even mentioned a membership change and simply asked for 1890€ admin fees or taxes!
After paying close to 1900€ for this change of membership, after having paid already around 1400€ to the resale company the timeshare owner receives a membership certificate for Continent Connections and never hears again about a resale.
Well “never” that is up till recently when the membership fee requests have been received and in a slightly “insisting” manner people are urged to pay these fees or will be taken to court!
They also offer the possibility of cancelling the membership by paying £297.
Sadly enough it seems that they are targeting a lot of elderly Timeshare owners and the tone of the correspondence is of such that we are afraid a lot of consumers have paid the fees in order to avoid problems.
Looking at the website of Continent Connections www.continentconnections.com there is no mention at all about resales or anything related to timeshare.
