Cold Caller List – August 2013

Cold Caller Oct

Dear All,

Please find below the updated Cold Caller list for the month of August 2013.

With 104 active companies of which 16 new ones detected in this August month, we can speak of a “relatively” quiet month. But of course, this must be due to the Holiday season and we can only fear that the activity will start all over again from September onwards.

So please be careful when you are cold called by any company with offers regarding your timeshare and even more if there are upfront payments involved.

    About two months ago I got a cold call from a lady called Deborah who claimed she works for a company called Sun Line Advisory. Soon after the telephone chat during which she claimed that Sun line Advisory could help me get my money back, I went abroad for nearly eight weeks. However, she phoned several times while I was away and left messages with my wife. When I returned I got a couple of calls but I was unable to answer and she left messages om my answering machine. Today I had another call and during our conversation, I mentioned other companies like: Global Holiday Services,2) Club Class Holidays 3)Holiday Advisory Bureau and Key Properties Town Advisory SL all of which claimed they could either re-sell my Timeshare or claim back some money I paid to other fraudulent companies. However she said I shall pay upfront, £499 for their services. I suggested that if she is quite certain that I shall get my money back, then would it not be re-assuring to pay the £499 when the company gets my money back. She then said the consultant who will be calling at my house to look through the documents I have and to advise me will be coming from afar. I decided I would discuss the issue with my wife. We then agreed that she would ring me back tonight at 7pm .but it is 10.30 pm and still no call. I am surprised that most of these companies are located in Malaga, Spain.Does anybody think the European Courts should do something about this?

    i have been contacted by merchant holdings who cold called me saying they have an ofer of £8,000 but know all the chat as i was once caught out. A lady called Pauline keeps calling and i am just letting her chat on lol. The tel no is 08444500038 Its at the stage where she is saying the buyer has deposited £3,600.

    my Mother got a call today from someone called Angela Moore from Price Cooper Finances saying the company who tried to buy her timeshare from a year or so ago have been taken to court and were being ordered to pay her £8000 in compensation, when she called her back she was told to pay £520 by moneygram at her local post office for “administration costs”. Has anyone else been cold called by these people? Apparently a solicitor called Jake Plumbs in Malaga is acting on their behalf.
    My Mother is 78 years old and would probably have fallen for this (again!) isn’t there anything we can do to stop these calls?

      They have all your personal details, the only way to stop calls is to change your telephone number.. My telephone number is ex directory, these companies sell your details off to others of the ” criminal Fraternity ” and they pass them on. I also changed my debit and credit cards so that they couldn’t use the details.

    Today 2/09/13 at about 11.30hrs I had a cold call from a firm stating to be Group Savings UK, of Croyden Surrey, Tele 02034781615, female caller named Leanne .They had all my personal details concerning my timeshare at Fairways Tenerife, and that I had been involved with Incentive Leisure group, at Lichfield, 2008, they wanted to help me get my money back from I L G. Ltd. They seemed to know a lot of details. When I asked where they had got them from, they stated that they had been given the file to sort out. There firm was one of 3 registered with the Ministry of Justice in the UK and only they could deal with it. They intend to forward some paperwork to me in the post to show that they were genuine. They did not ask for money up front, but would be a no win no fee. I wonder whether they are one of the new ” Scam Firms “

      today. 4/9/13 I telephoned Group Savings and later spoke to Simon Stephens, with a PH who asked me to remove the above blogg comment. I wonder why, I have only had telephone conversations with them, no emails as I suggested, no actual full address of their Company, only Croyden Surrey, and they don’t appear to be on the ” Nett” anywhere, I wonder if there is any reason for this. I have made other enqs about this Firm, and it would appear that know one seems to have heard of them. Could anyone enlighten
      me. It would appear that The Firm read The Blogg comments on the Mindtimeshare as Mr Simon Stephens asked me to remove mine. They are the sixth persons to ” Cold call” me in about the last month. Where are they getting the information from.

    A callback after umpteen earlier calls from Reclaim Services which I had gone along with in an attempt to get some info on their sales pitch abruptly ended when I asked for their paper work to be sent by e-mail. I was promised the info the same day. Almost three weeks later not a word. Thankfully no more phone calls either.

    two days ago I got phone call from Spain and lady said to me she has 5 star holiday reserved for me with free flights and I only need to pay £199 to reserve them. after some discussion when i persisted that I need to see some paperwork before I give you my credit card number, she said to me,’bugger off’. This is the intellect of people sat in Spain mugging people from Britain. These people remind me of criminals thrown to Australia few centuries ago. Why Spanish land is no cultivatable for such Holiday Crimes and unfortunately most thugs are British.
