It has been brought to our attention that Touchdown Vacations a subsidiary of DMT Management International SrL has reinitiated their cold call activity again.
Touchdown Vacations presents themselves on their website http://www.touchdown-vacations.com/ as “Luxury Holiday Accommodation Providers” but in reality they cold call to offer a Timeshare resale.
The pitch goes that as a Romanian Travel Agent which has been active for over 18 months, they have discovered a niche market where wealthy Romanian professionals travelling on a yearly basis, making these people ideal candidates for Timeshare ownership.
After the initial cold call, Touchdown Vacations sends a confirmation email to the Timeshare owner explaining they have the buyers lined up and soon their timeshare will be sold. Touchdown assures the owner that there is no upfront fee to be paid, and commission is only payable once the owner has a confirmed wire transfer to your account by the purchaser.
On the confirmation email, the agent from Touchdown signs with all the company information.
When looking into the first website this appears to be a genuine UK travel agency, with totally different contact numbers and company details. There is no mention at all about their “Romanian” partners. It looks like Touchdown Vacations subsidiary of DMT Management International SrL is using this website link to create a false sense of trust with the consumers. We are in contact with Touchdown in the UK to make them aware of this.
What we heard from consumers who actually went through with the supposed resale of their ownership, the trick is though in this “wire confirmation”. At some point the owner is notified that the transfer has been done, but because the money comes “all the way” from Romania it takes longer to show on his account. Touchdown Vacations does though ask for the commission to be paid straight away. Those who paid the commission by bank transfer to Touchdown, realized days later that the supposed “wire” from Romania never arrived.
