Many cold callers are contacting timeshare owners to offer claims nowadays. It seems to be a very attractive selling point and consumers are vulnerable to these sales talks of “recuperating all your money”.
One of the latest cold callers who are offering such possibility is a company called Charles Ashworth Consulting.
As with the other cold callers who offer these claims, there is always a need for the consumer to either receive an agent at home or attend a meeting.
With Charles Ashworth Consulting the option is attending a meeting in Redditch.
After the initial call the agent from Charles Ashworth Consulting a follow up email is send to the timeshare owner.
The points they raise as usual, the maintenance fees, perpetuity and lack of availability.
One phrase that calls the attention in the mail is where they say:” Here at Charles Ashworth we are working with a number of legal teams across the UK and in partnership with Third Party Lawyers running compensation claims against your time share …”
Something which is quiet surprising as normally a legal company in the UK would not accept any customer which has been approached and offered their services on a cold call.
Such way of acting is considered as not ethical under the SRA Code of Conduct 2011, which is the mandatory Code of Ethics for UK Lawyers, and this regulation states: “O (8.3) You do not make unsolicited approaches in person or by telephone to members of the public in order to publicize your firm or in-house practice or another business.”
Apart from the above, we have done research on Charles Ashworth Consulting and noticed that for example their website has only been life since the beginning of May. So very recent.
Contact details for Charles Ashworth Consulting are Telephone: 02895215532 or 0121 667 8770
Nobody is actually invited to this address as all meetings take place in Redditch.
Their website http://www.charlesashworth.com does not have any further company identification or details, no Companies House, no privacy statement and no terms and conditions.
We certainly would recommend consumers to be cautious when speaking to this company.
