Sunshine Holidays, the cold calling Timeshare resale from Benalmadena

sunshine

A cold caller alert goes out for a recently spotted company by the name of Sunshine Holidays.

This company Sunshine Holidays contacts Timeshare owners and claim to have a buyer waiting for their membership.

Sale can be completed quickly and as far as the agent from Sunshine Holidays concerns, the whole process will take less than 2 weeks.

Sunshine Holidays does not seem to have a website, and their address on the paperwork is reduced down to the name of the neighbourhood and postcode: 29630 Sante Angelo Norte which is Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol.

The phone number used is a Spanish Mobile 0034 602 656 890

After the initial cold call, Sunshine Holidays quickly reconfirms everything that has been said over the phone in a document which they email from sunshine_holidays@yahoo.es

In this document it becomes clear though that even though the supposed buyers have already paid the full amount (!!) into an escrow account, still an “Insurance bond” is needed from the selling timeshare owner.

This security bond will have to be paid before Sunshine Holidays completes the sale. Once paid, the owner will be contacted by ACC Legal Associates who are handling the sale. ACC Legal Associates will also take note of the bank details where they will transfer the money received from the sale. It doesn’t seem to be an option to deduct this “insurance bond” from the money that is already in the Escrow account.

But rest assured that Sunshine Holidays assures the fees will be returned as soon as the sale is completed…

Needless to say that we have not found any registration number at the Spanish Companies House for  Sunshine Holidays and neither for ACC Legal Associates.

We have seen it before and we know that a cold call, no company details, no address and upfront payments are not a good sign. But for those who are called by Sunshine Holidays from 0034 602656890 it might be the first time, and the offer might sound credible. So please be careful and do NOT pay a cold caller any upfront fees ever.

If you have been contacted by Sunshine Holidays or any other cold caller with similar offers then please let us know.
