Cold Caller alert for Resale Company Happy Days Spain!

HDS

Happy Days Spain is a new cold calling Timeshare resale company that seems to be very active.

Happy Days Spain contacts Timeshare and Holiday Ownership Members and assures them they have buyers for their Membership.

This resale company claims that amounts such as £10.000 are likely to be paid for a Discount Travel Club Membership by Eastern European customers.

Surprisingly Happy Days Spain seems to have all information about the consumer’s membership and even about his dealings with certain bogus resale companies.

Not only can Happy Days Spain sell their timeshare membership guaranteed, but also the money paid to these previous (bogus) resale companies will be recovered in the same operation.

All the Timeshare owner needs to do is to pay an upfront fee of around £1800 to start the procedures… This payment should be done by bank transfer as Happy Days Spain does not work with credit or debit card payments. How convenient!

Research on the resale company Happy Days Spain has shown that their website http://www.happydaysspain.com/ was registered on the 28th of January 2014.

A website with an extended menu of all kinds of services, but no possibility at all to access this information so purely there for “filling” up the website.

There is no address on the website for Happy Days Spain and neither is there any company registration or other identification of who this company is.

The only contact details given is an email address info@happydaysspain.com and a telephone number they provide when speaking to the client: 0844 245 1174

We certainly do not recommend this company.

If you have received a cold call from Happy Days Spain  from 08442451174 for a guaranteed resale, then please let us know.

    My parents have received a call from Happy Days Spain offering to sell their membership of Principle Travel Holiday Club. They are elderly and confused but were persuaded to pay £1900 by bank transfer. This is obviously a scam and they will never see the £1900 again. I’m not even sure they have membership with PTHC!

    I have been contacted by an Anne Preston, who introduces herself as a solicitor .A payment of
    £2,400 would lead to my receiving as much as £32,098 for my Club Concierge ( all details of this
    Timeshare were known by Anne P.)
    My bank made me aware of this likely scam .
    Anne P. persevered with several subsequent calls .

    i too have a call regarding a sale of my holiday memership with blue chip. saying they have sold it for 9.000 pounds off cause i was pleased with this amount. as previusly last year bluechip told me they had sold it for 7,500 and asked me to pay 800 pounds before they could complete the deal.like a fool i sent this money, when i rang them they told the sale had fell through and they would keep the 800 until they got a sale, then said this money would be refunded, this was november last year. gave it upup as a bad job until i had a call from Happy Days who knew all about my account with blue chip, saying they could now get my money back but they wanted a registration fee of 1400 euros, i said i could pay by credit card, but said they couldnt accept this and it must be a bank transfer. which i am reluctant to do. therefore any advice would be welcomed. do i do this or not.

    I too had a call on bank holiday Monday to say exactly the same, but I did say at the beginning that if any fees needed to be paid that was not going to happen. I had been through this with Selling Time about 3 years ago when they scammed me out of £1,800! So all along the lady said “no there is no fee as we are not selling you a product”. Anyway I went along with it as I had nothing better to do for half an hour and it was quite amusing. She said that I could get £14,500 immediately and did I want to go ahead, so I said “yes please”. She said she needed to ring off to deal with the contracts dept and would ring back in 15 mins, which she did, she was obviously true to her word! She told me to take all she was saying down on paper and said that the money would arrive in my bank, blah blah, courier would be sent with official papers, blah. So she then said hold on while I speak to my manager……. Then she was back with the final part of the sale, and all I had to do to complete this was to pay a “holding fee”, so there it was at last, the elephant in the room, hers not mine! I reiterated that at the start of the call I said that no monies were going to leave my account in any shape or form, she assured me that the transaction was covered by the Bank of England and if there were any problems (why did she think there would be some, as she didnt say!) I would get my money back. So once again I stated that I was not going to part with my money and she said OK, I will have to speak to my manager again and get back to you….. Strange because she never did! How do these people sleep at night!

    Just had a call from HAPPY DAYS SPAIN saying that they had sold my holiday membership at the request of BLUE CHIP who had referred me to them.They would do me a favour by not charging me 2400 euros but only 1800 euros for registration and when would i be able to do this. When i told Mr.Martin Gibbs (sales manager)that it would be next week at the earliest he started to throw a wobbly by saying that if i was not serious about the sale i should not waste his time.
