#Timeshare Cold Callers Yearly report 2016

Dear All,

The year 2016 has been a very busy year (again) at Mindtimeshare.

Throughout the year we have been publishing the monthly Cold Caller reports and now after finalizing 2016 we have put together the yearly report.

A complete list of the 294 Cold Callers can be found on the following link:


In total we have 315 active dubious companies on our reports, of which 294 companies are actively cold calling consumers.

Throughout the year, from the 315 companies there were 201 new company names.

Looking at the type of companies that are cold calling, we have the following numbers:

  • Fake legal companies and fake liquidators                     154
  • Resale companies                                                                 49
  • Claims Companies/ Class Action                                      47
  • Fly Buy generators                                                               20
  • Disposal companies                                                             13
  • Mediation Companies                                                           8
  • Fake Banks                                                                              7
  • DTMC – Discount Travel Membership Clubs                   7
  • Others                                                                                      10


As you can appreciate the amount of companies / individuals who cold call and claim to be a legal professional or connected to a legal office in some kind is extremely high.

Through our blog, website and other social media such as Twitter and Facebook we have been publishing warnings about these cold callers.

In 2016 we published 125 blog articles. The Mindtimeshare blog received 268.000 views from 86.000 visitors this past year and the most popular article was the Monthly Cold Caller list.

Main nationality visiting the blog is from UK, followed by Spain, USA, France and Germany.

The only thing we can sincerely hope is that our blog articles have made a difference with all the consumers who wrote to us or visited the blog, and has avoided them to pay into some kind of dubious set up.

Thanks for all your cooperation and information you have been sending us throughout the year!
