Have you been cold called by Rosedale Group, the corporate Timeshare resale agent?

Captura de pantalla 2015-05-21 a la(s) 16.46.30

Rosedale Group is a new cold calling Timeshare Resale Company who is cold calling Timeshare owners who had dealings with other dubious resale companies in the past.

The agent from Rosedale group explains that the company the consumer dealt with is under investigation due to their dubious selling methods and will have to appear in court. But now Rosedale will make sure the timeshare will be sold.

Rosedale Group is not just another Resale Company; they are a corporate company that sells timeshare to large businesses. The agent even mentions that normally they don’t deal with private clients but thanks to a special promotion they have now a buyer for the timeshare week of the consumer.

So how lucky can one get?

All the Timeshare owner needs to do is pay a registration fee of £1900 and the sale will be processed. Once everything is sorted, the timeshare owner will receive back the price for the timeshare, the registration fee and also the money they paid to the previous company for the sale that never happened.

Obviously Rosedale Group has not taken into account that as per the Timeshare Directive it is totally forbidden to ask for an upfront payment to process a sale. Corporate or not, this is an illegal upfront payment!

Rosedale has a website www.rosedalegroup.info which was registered in the first week of April 2015.

The company appears as Rosedale Marketing on the website.

The address they quote is actually a post-box at a local post office: Apartado de Correos 001, Torre Del Mar 29740 Malaga, Spain.

Their email address is admin@rosedalegroup.info

It is surprising to see that the list of supposed products they have on sale are all from Dubious Travel Membership Clubs which seem almost impossible to sell.

If you are cold called by Rosedale Group or Rosedale Marketing in Spain and offered a resale, then please do let us know.

    just waiting for Rosedale to call, having been contacted by Half Moon again after 12 months!

    Rosedale called this morning with the same spiel as described above, offering to buy my Continent Connections membership! His company having been approached by Half Moon Holdings of all people. He was on phone for nearly an hour and sounded very plausible but once he started given details of addresses (which I recognised as PO Box) and the fee of 1900 (why do they nearly all chose that value?) that was that. Thanks once again for your site Alberto.

    I have been approached by Rosedale with precisely the same “spiel” that was described in your article. They claimed to have a buyer waiting and, probably foolishly, I paid a “registration fee” of Euros 1000 to be a registered client to enable the sale to proceed. I want to take advantage of the fifteen day statutory “cooling off” period to get my money returned because, in talking to their representative, there were so many inconsistencies as to make me very suspicious. Would appreciate your early comments/advice.
