The European Consumer Centre in Norway received 140 complaints about Voyager Travel.

The alleged gang of criminals continues active.

The 8th of February 2014, last Saturday, a Norwegian economic magazine “Dine Penger” published the following article: “Fraud Suspect vacation club still in full swing”

As per Norwegian magazine “Dine Penger”, in spite of the police action in July 2013 against Voyager Travel / Lifestyle Holidays and the court hearing which started on the 3rd of February 2014, the activity of these companies is more than ever.

As pointed out, the whole set up is now active under a different name; Compass and some of the activities have moved to Maspalomas.

Most worrying fact mentioned in this article as well, is that the Norwegian ECC office continues to receive complaints about bogus Holiday Clubs.

So far the European Consumer Centre in Norway has received 300 inquiries on holiday clubs, timeshare resale agreements and last year, 140 of them apply to Voyager Travel.

The ECC has also received six inquiries on Compass.

As per Ragnar Wilk, Director of the ECC office in Norway, “…Consumer Agency in Spain can treat these cases. But it is clear that they do not have the capacity to process thousands of cases from many countries. In many cases it is also a question of the scope of the EU Timeshare Directive, because the company splits up the agreement in various pieces, …”

Between the hundreds of complaints received by Mindtimeshare, the 140 complaints at the ECC in Norway and who knows how many at other ECC offices around Europe including Spain, it becomes difficult to believe that the Police action against Voyager was a mere attack of the Timeshare industry against Voyager as claimed by Eugen Friedrich Kaiser, main responsible of this alleged fraud.
