ITRA sued by timeshare owners and ordered to refund payments in full

Captura de pantalla 2016-07-29 a la(s) 09.13.11

Great news has reached us this week!

ITRA (International Timeshare Refund Action) was taken to court by a retired couple this June and having considered the evidence, the judge ruled that the contract signed by the consumers was invalid. ITRA was ordered to refund the couple’s payments and to pay their costs.

The story of this couple is more than known by many consumers who attended the meeting from ITRA and realized afterwards that signing up wasn’t that good idea.

In the case of the Walkers, statements made during the meeting with ITRA about the timeshare being in perpetuity and consumers being “stuck” for ever and beyond with their membership turned out to be completely untrue and on top of this ITRA did not even dispose of the timeshare membership.

We are very pleased with the outcome of this claim and the ruling from the judge.

    Hi Folks, Sorry I was so excited about this result I never gave any details of my dealings with ITRA.

    I contacted a company called ETOO (European Timeshare Owners Organisation) who were at that time part of ITRA. I paid them a fee of 1195 Euros, at that time about £1100, plus the cost of accommodation and flights we spent about £1500. Then my wife and I were invited to Spain for a meeting about selling our RCI timeshare.

    At this meeting we were told that they had found a buyer for our timeshare and they would take us to another office where the sale would be completed. This second company turned out to be Club Class Concierge, where we were so confused that we gave them our timeshare and bought into their holiday program on the promise that we would get the full amount we paid RCI via a cashback scheme.

    Needless to say when we tried to get our money from this scheme there was no money available. We were then told that the money for several people went into a pot and the amount you got depended on how many people made their claim on time. Unfortunately our claim date was near the end of our particular pool and despite us making our claim correctly on the first day we could, all the money had already been distributed.

    I did ask if I may have contact details of three people who actually received money from our pool and as I expected, they could not give out that information. It turned out that this cashback was a scam and when I checked it was run out of the same office as Club Class Concierge in Gibraltar.

    I know I have very little chance of ever getting any money from Club Class, but if I could get back the money from ITRA then that would be some form of moral victory. At least I no longer have RCI chasing me for maintenance fees. It seems they gave up when I refused to play ball with the debt collectors they set onto me, although I did receive an email offering me a new deal from RCI a few months ago, I didn’t answer it in case they wanted me to clear my bill.

    Hi, I paid money to ITRA. I did mention this when I signed up to your RCI case.

    Does this mean we all have a chance of getting out money back from ITRA? If so can you please provide details of how we go about this.

    Robin
