GR8STAYS offering Consumer act claims against Club Class, the world upside down!

We have been saying this for a long time now; these people don’t really know what to come up with next.

The latest mailing from Gr8stays (Pronounced Great Stays) is this time not because they want to make you believe you owe them a yearly fee or you have to pay to get out of this dubious club.

No…, the latest mailing is (believe it or not), a concerned letter because they have noticed that you aren’t making use of your entitlements and are not benefiting from the “considerable” outlay you paid to purchase the ownership.
(Note…you own nothing here, it is a membership!)

Gr8stays wonders that maybe you feel the membership was improperly sold or mis represented in any manner and they kindly would like to offer the opportunity to take part in a probe which their legal team is currently conducting, through which you could receive a considerable percentage refunded of your initial purchase outlay, if successful of course and even better with interest accrued as well if applicable.

This so called legal team of Gr8stays have began trialing this scheme since January 2016 and to date they have achieved numerous successful refunds…

This all on a no win no fee basis…but only available to those who paid by credit card…and if successful Gr8stays wants a 40%.
So why not those who paid with another payment method? Surely in a “trial” in court the judge won’t make a difference between those who paid with one method or the other?

Or are we maybe talking about a Consumer Act claim with the Credit card company, which consumers can do themselves for free?

Does this not sound like Leisure claims? What happened? Maybe better not using the name Leisure alliance / Leisure Claims seen the fact Leisure Alliance was wound up as well last month?

If Gr8stays is a “membership level” for what before was Club Class, if they do a refund claim, are they claiming against themselves?

If they need to explain to the credit card provider the mis representations and mis selling of the product, will they need the story of the consumer or would they already know, as they were present at the purchase in the way of being the seller?

So a Discounted Holiday Club as Gr8stays pretends to be has now a “legal” team going to trial?

Based where? In their “offices” in Gibraltar or the ones in Washington, USA where they are registered?

This is the world upside down and nothing; nothing can really surprise us any longer from these people!

Just beware…

    Today, l received a Final Notice letter from gr8stays and signed by Phillip Hill regarding unpaid membership fees (£570). They state that all there members including those from Club Class & Leisure Alliance endorse the new company and there rules etc. They also add that for a fee of £495, added to outstanding fees we can terminate our agreement. If not we will acrue more debt and legal costs especially if they carry out legal proceedings to to obtain the money we owe them. Thought we had heard the last of these dishonest people, but as before we are not paying anything.

    Today we have revived a letter from gr8stays saying we owe £110 in unpaid fees as we have failed to maintain the agreed charges since April 2016. If we pay £275 which is a £165 cancellation charge plus £110 fees owing we can buy out of membership. We originally signed up with Club Class which no longer exists. Are we liable for these charges or can we ignore the letter?

    I did report this last year when Gr8stays started doing this and then introduced Leisure Claims into the picture. Basically it’s a doubly whammy – first of all you get conned with the purchase/membership (call it what you like) and then they offer you a deal to claim your money back (which comes back from the CR Card company – not them!) with a S75 and ask for 40% on top.
    The max a UK solicitor will ask for is 30%.

    DO NOT TOUCH IT WITH A BARGE POLE – I would hate to see the paperwork involved which no doubt would involve you in some additional cost – surprise, surprise.
