Recently we have been made aware of a cold call campaign from Holiday Impact Services to attract consumers.
Timeshare owners (mainly from Tenerife) are being also targeted through cold calls with promises to help them to get out of their contractual timeshare agreements. Basically they seem to be acting as a timeshare disposal service.
The main marketing company behind this set up though is Impact Services Spain SL which is selling a Gold Crown Resorts membership. Together with the membership they also offer a Cash Back, which will provide the member the possibility to recuperate the money paid for the membership.
In December 2012 we published an article on this blog about Impact Services Spain. (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-F9) In this article we explained about this company and their way of using OPC’s in the streets of Tenerife to take customers to their sales decks and sell them a dubious Holiday Club Membership.
Their sales deck is situated currently in Colina Blanca San Eugenio Alto, 10-30, Adeje.
Telephone number used is: 0034 922 715 475 and email firstname.lastname@example.org
What has been noticed is that the cold call campaign is almost exclusively targeted towards members of one particular resort. It is therefore to be questioned how Holiday Impact Services has obtained the information from the members of this resort. It certainly doesn’t look good that an ex-employee of this resort seems to be the one cold calling. This is a clear symptom of an alleged fraudulent use of the information, and therefore likely to be reported to the Data Protection Agency of Spain.
We have to insist to those Timeshare owners who are approached by Holiday Impact Services or Impact Services Spain on a cold call, to be extremely cautious. Although the person calling might be known to you from previous visits to the resort, it is certainly not a correct way of working and we have serious doubts about their main objective of this call.
If you have been contacted already by Impact Services Spain or Holiday impact Services from +34 922715475 then please let us know.
