Victoria Marketing, same name, same people, same place but slightly different offer.


Yes of course we have heard of Victoria Marketing. As a matter of fact we have a blog about them posted in July 2013 ( )

In those days, Victoria Marketing was cold calling Timeshare consumers but mainly those who had been dealing with Incentive Leisure Group – ILG. They invited those consumers over to the Costa Del Sol claiming that there were assets from ILG that were going to be sold, and the money coming from these sales would be shared with all the “victims” of this company.

It became soon very clear that nothing of this story was true, and all those who attended the meeting thinking they were going to cash in money, were presented with an “offer” to pay thousands of pounds which would be “recuperated” afterwards.

Ever since then, it has been quiet around Victoria Marketing. But they are now back in the game and again actively cold calling Timeshare Consumers.

The pitch though has changed and become more recognizable. Join a No Win No Fee class action group against RCI and your Timeshare resort.

Sounds familiar? Well yes indeed. Victoria Marketing is cold calling to invite Timeshare owners to their meetings in Marbella on the Costa del Sol, which are actually done by ITRA the International Timeshare Refund Action.

In the same way as many others, such as Sherlock Marketing or information Advice Bureau, Victoria Marketing invites the consumer over in order to attend this meeting.

You can have a look at the numerous articles we posted on our blog about this company and also the “real” issue that is discussed at those meeting. The link to those posts is

If you have been contacted by Victoria Marketing for a 3 day stay in Marbella on the Costa del Sol, then please let us know.

    I too have been cold called by Victoria Marketing promising a free 3 days in Malaga. The purpose to sign up to the class action. I asked for more information and they promised to email me……but as ever they haven’t delivered. Thanks to you I will ignore them from now on

  2. Manoj says:

    I had a call from Victoria Marketing, Sharon and she specifically said we are not a UK company and there may be many rumours of the UK company. They took a few details of mine and now they want me to fill out a survey for their assessors to assess my situation to award how much i can possibly get for a 60/40 split on a no win no claim basis. All I have to pay was flight to Spain. Thanks to this blog and all your testimonials, I better ask them to go fly kites instead.

  3. Andy says:

    Was contacted by “Carol” from Victoria Marketing today asking if I would like to join a class action to reclaim initial purchase costs and maintenance for 15 years. She said I could be awarded thousands and the split would be 60 – 40. She said she needed 30000 signatories and they already had 28500. This class action would change the law in Spain to allow opt out clauses not included in original contracts. As with previous posters she said I would have to travel to Marbella and they would put me up in a four star hotel for three days. What a load of nonsense. Even if this was true the dilution of a 30000 claim class action would probably end up with individuals getting £100 max.

  4. Al says:

    Yes, we have been contacted by Annette Hollingsworth from Victoria marketing and became suspicious when she invited us to Spain, for free!!! Needless to say, having read the information on this site, we will not be filling in the questionnaire or going to Spain!

  5. Nudger says:

    We were been contacted by Victoria Marketing, yesterday, about a class action in Spain even though we only own in the UK. I hadn’t heard of the company but became suspicious with anything that included Marketing in the name. This was added to when as part of the process you would have to sign some documents on Spanish soil. For this you would have four day bed and breakfast even though the legal bit would only take half a day. Alarm bells ringing very loud at that stage. I decided that I would look them up and found this page

  6. Delightful says:

    I have been contacted by them on several occasions! They fail to understand that firstly I do not want to go to Fuengirola and secondly that we are more than happy with our timeshare. In one of their emails they were less than complimentary about a certain ‘Senor Alberto Garcia’. They claim that as soon as we signed up for our timeshare we would be added to a Timeshare Owners database. Hence they have a moral duty to protect us. It is all laughable.

  7. Ray says:

    I have been requested to attend a meeting in Spain regarding my timeshare interests and possible claim due to the lack of an option out clause the co is Victoria marketing are they bona fide or yet another sc** a quick reply would be appreciated

    I’ve been contacted by Victoria marketing today and asking to complete online questionaires. Monotonuos bogus callers. I directly contacted Club La Costa before for the option of surrendering my fractional rights, it is possible however you will not get any penny of what you’ve paid for. So basically you need to weight the damamge is it worth loosing the money you paid for and get on with your life peacefully without headache or pay the yearly increasing maintenance fees and most of the time you can’t book your requested holiday. In addition you still need to pay some admin booking fee if you are successful to get one. I’ve been thinking hard on the option one (damage control) unless there is one in a million there who successfully managed to get a penny on their fractional rights. Let me know please..

    I just had another cold call from Victoria Marketing, female asking me to update our details for the action against our Timeshare company. I asked why I should give her any details, she said because I asked you, I said but your’e a sc**mer, she said she wasn’t a sc**mer and said I didn’t know anything about her, which is true or I would pass them on Mindtimeshare. She hung up on me as i was hanging up on her. Usual telephone number 01865 986228.

  10. Mike says:

    Just sent a message about Victoria marketing asking me to come to marbella to complain about my time share. Can you advise me if this is a scam.

  11. morson says:

    regularly contacted by Victoria marketing and sherlock marketing. was about to fill out Victoria marketing’s assessment form . decided to Google them beforehand, glad I did now. I’m with club la costa on fractional ownership , worst decision ever.

  12. P.H. says:

    I have been contacted by Victoria Marketing as I have fraction points with Club La Costa. Any advice.

  13. David says:

    I have been contacted recently by Victoria Marketing regarding my Club La Costa fractional ownership. They are claiming the contract is illegally in perpetuity, which I do not believe it is, and want me to complete an on-line questionnaire to assess the value of any claim I may have against CLC as a result. This would be followed by a trip out to Malaga, necessary as the claim would be part of a Spanish class action against CLC. Needless to say, having read the information on this site about the probable links to ITRA et al, I will not be filling in the questionnaire or going to Spain!

  14. Verica says:

    Yes,we have been contacted by Christina McGrath from Victoria marketing and invited to Spain.Do this people really think we are that naive especially after what we got ourselves into with La costa

  15. John says:

    have been contacted by Victoria Marketing and they have arranged hotel stay in Fuengirola with them picking me up from Hotel for meeting please can you advise John

  16. Brian says:

    I have just last week been contacted by this company as I own with DRI. They have sent me a questionnaire to complete online for them to assess the probability of my claim against DRI. Their rep. Chris also said that
    a. she would be in touch with me again this week
    b. for me to succeed, i would have to go out to Spain and be “interviewed” by one of their legal
    team. As I am almost 83 I do not fancy a long jaunt for a 2/3 night stayover in Marbella.
    Also, I have previously been contacted by ITRA, whom V.M. are connected to, and got nowhere with them.
    I will not be proceeding further with this offer, and suggest no-one else does either.

  17. Graham says:

    Hi. We have been contacted by Victoria Marketing 3 months ago about relinquishing our fractional points at Club La Costa. At that time, my wife was about to have a serious operation, so everything was postponed for 3 months. Now she has just been discharged from having a hip replacement and they are now putting us under pressure to register and fly out to Spain the end of September to document our claim. At the moment unsure the authenticity of this process and fearful it’s a scam. Would appreciate some advice. Thanks

  18. David says:

    Personally legal help might help as you may be entitled to a section 75 reclaim depending on how it was sold and I helped one guy get over 14K back. The other option is to not pay tell them where to stick it and threaten them with the insolvency department who master minded the downfall of their companies (7 in total) due to mis-selling and mis-representation.

  19. Mine says:

    Had a letter fromLeisure alliance who took over from Club Class asking for £55 annual subscription .i said I didn’t want to pay if I would rather lose it and they said I would need to pay£ 495 for an advanced referral program to resell .can I just not bother paying and ignore letters and Very Many Phone calls as I do not trust this company any longer .thanks
