Beware of the cold calls from the Fake RDO in Singapore!

Captura de pantalla 2015-06-26 a la(s) 16.44.22

It has been brought to our attention that timeshare owners living in Singapore are receiving calls from a company claiming to be the RDO Offices in Singapore.

RDO has no offices in Singapore or outside Europe as a matter of fact!

A lady called Sophia, who claims she’s from the Singapore office of Resorts Development Organisation (RDO), calls the timeshare owner and explains about his supposedly over-due timeshare agreement purchased from Interval Resorts Network (IRN) or Asian travel Club.

As per this “Sophia”, the timeshare owner should need to close this agreement.

In order to get this done the (fake) RDO agent can arrange an appointment with MTF Group International Pte. Ltd. Who are the ones dealing with this subject.

At the appointment with MTF Group International, the timeshare owner is explained again about the situation involving Asian Travel Club (ATC), IRN and RDO. As per the representative, the RDO in Singapore has detected that there are many agreements in the mentioned resort groups with contracts that are long over-due and need to be closed.

MTF Group offers to close the agreement by endorsing the registration for claims from Australia Escrow Services, for a nominal fee of S$2,500 to be paid in cash to MTF Group International.

As they explain this is the only way to make sure the contract is closed properly.

Other timeshare owners are being told there is a claim against their resort group and they can join the claim, which is been done by MTF Group. Again, in order to join the timeshare owner needs top ay money in cash to MTF.

The initial calls seem to proceed from the following number: +65 841155 901 but the contact details of MTF Group are as follows:

13A Upper Circular Rd, Singapore 058411,

Telephone: +65354154 and +65354376


Seen the fact these companies are pretending to be what they are not, and then tell a story at the meeting about contracts needing to be closed or claims against resorts that nobody knows about, we certainly do NOT recommend having any dealings with them.

Cold callers are not to be trusted and if any statement is made about a resort or organisation you should always double check is this is true!

If you have been contacted by RDO Singapore or MTF Group directly, then please let us know.

    I have receive call from them every week. I believe 82616481 is a fake number. Is there any way to stop this harassment and try to put all these people to jail? This happen quite long already and our government did not done anything.

    Told by one Andy Angus I have more than $500K from an Escrow Account, Head Office from UK. But I need to pay 12% tax, amounting to more than $60K upfront, before they would release the money to me.

      I got a call from Any too (90544842) asking to meet Acclaim Management with regards to receiving mount lying in Escrow account for which I would need to pay them about S$4000 for drafting a demand note. Earlier on another lady had called from a handphone number 91303379 also claiming to be from RDO and asking me to meet United Recovery Agency.
      Seems like another scam.

        My aunt is currently in this situation and may i know what’s the results after u met United Recovery Agency?

    Hi there, I just received a call from RDO about my IRN Timeshare issue. It seems that they have “resolved” under the Court Order and has a cheque for me. Should I entertain them?

    I just received a call (handphone number), from a lady who claimed to be calling from RDO.
    She claimed that the court case against timeshare companies have been settled and I am entitled to a refund of $XXX
    She then said I will need to go down to meet their “lawyers” to do some documentation and I can collect the cheque of $XXX sometime in July 2018.
    When she SMS me the “lawyer” I am supposed to be meeting, I already know that this is most probably another SCAM.
    The company they want me to go for an appointment is called United Recovery Agency (URA), , located at ALBERT COMPLEX.

    I went down anyway as scheduled, and met an indian guy (most probably a Sporean), and I was told they will prepare a LETTER OF DEMAND on my behalf, and upon collecting my cheque, I will be required to pay 10% in commission, which I have no qualms about that.

    But here the catch,. I will have to pay $1500 upfront in cash for their “service” to engage “their LAWYER” to draft the necessary Letter Of Demand.
    I find it extremely strange that RDO (assuming it exist in Spore), engages a debt-collecting agency, as a third party to then engage its so-called “Lawyer” to do the letter of demand. (The Lawyer hence becomes a “fourth party” in this whole thing?? ).
    I wondered why RDO (if the real RDO exist in Spore), cannot engage a lawyer directly??
    And also, why am I not given the option to engage my own lawyer, assuming what RDO says over the phone is true, and not scam?

    The person I spoke to at URA (the indian “business consultant” ) very promptly got hold of my existing timeshares documents, and IC, for photocopying, and got the office girl outside to prepare a set of “service contract agreement” papers with (URA letter head) and waiting for me to sign on it.
    But I DID NOT sign any of their documents. Instead, I politely excused myself and left the office.
    The guy I spoke to, politely acknowledge my apprehension, and did not stop or obstruct me from leaving.

    Anyone with similar experience, please share. Thanks.

      Received similar call today mention that my claim will be expiring in Jul’2018 and want me to bring along my bank account and particular to their office (many location). And worst of all, they are calling using a private number.

    hi I was contacted by the same company MTF Group international just today (19 April16)also. I was “invited” 2 years ago that I can get a refund, was pressured to pay $1850 for the fees but had claim i have no money and can only paid $850. (how stupid of me to still feel hope at that time) I too got a mail from Australia abt 2 months later in 2015 jan on the amount of money I can get back. I did not follow up as I have a gut feeling that it will be another sc**. the new thing this time round is they have moved to 133 keck send tower #03-01. is there any way to stop this harassment.
