FHA Marketing cold calls and an invitation to meet up with their Claims Assesors.

A new cold caller that has been highlighted over the past week is FHA Marketing.

This company has started a very active call campaign and we received numerous inquiries asking who they were.

FHA Marketing is though yet again another company, which is cold calling on behalf of another company using the name of RSB Legal who has meetings in Redditch and Manchester.

Sounds familiar? Of course it does, because long before we had the calls from FHA Marketing there were other companies cold calling as well for the same invitation.

Anderson Read Consultancy, Warwickshire consultants, Taylor Marshall Associates, Charles Ashworth Consultants and Harwood Jones Consulting.

All these companies invite for a meeting to discuss a so called “No win No fee” claim against the resort or exchange company.

After the initial contact by phone, the timeshare consumer is sent an email to reconfirm their appointment. The subject of the email is: RSB LEGAL APPOINTMENT CONFIRMATION LETTER- Redditch Office.

But once at the meeting they actually ask the consumer for money upfront for administration fees etc. so we don’t really understand their perception of “no win no fee”!

So far we have not heard of any consumer with a successful claim done by “FHA Marketing” or their “claims assessors”

Email address for FHA Marketing are: consultants@fhamarketing.co.uk or info@fhamarketing.co.uk and website http://fhamarketing.co.uk

If you received a cold call from FHA Marketing or attended the meeting in Redditch or Manchester, please let us know.

    Just received a follow-up call from Reece Turner at Leyland Marketing Consultants(reece@leylandmarketingconsultants.co.uk) 0121 667 5932. I put forward to him my concerns that his company was just a marketing company to find leads for solicitors in his area and that if I was to attend a No-win, No-Fee meeting, that I would be subject to a timeshare-style pressure sale for upfront costs. He re-stated that the lawsuit to cancel my CLC perpetuity agreement would be no-win, no-fee and worth pursuing to avoid costs of leaving, to which I reminded him there was no cost as I had previously advised him. He then went back to talking about reclaiming (at least some of) the original outlay, to which I re-stated my concerns about being pressured to pay up front. He then politely (unexpected) wished me all the best and hung up.

    The number above is very similar to other numbers mentioned regarding this topic (only last 4 digits differ) so it does point to the possibility it is the same company, under different guises (or at least companies in the same geographical area) that are involved in this scheme.

    The very fact they want you to travel to a location that is remote from your place of comfort is a classic timeshare-esque sales tactic, where you are already making a commitment to them just by travelling a fair distance for the meeting.

    Please be aware.

    I received a cold call yesterday from Leyland Marketing Consultancy claiming to be able to retrieve funds from our timeshare without us having to give it up. I was told I would have to attend a meeting in Coventry with Standon Mortimer Associates. She did not want to take no for an answer.

  3. Dick says:

    Please see an email my wife and I wrote to them, and are currently awaiting there response. Their response (if received) will also be published on this blog.


    Thanks again for making this appointment.

    We did our research on FHA Marketing and found it to be an illegitimate company.

    We found out that:

    1. It’s just a ‘cold calling’ company.

    2. There is no record of FHA Marketing on the Company House register, though your website suggests FHA Marketing has been around for 50 years.

    3. There are no evidence of anyone successfully receiving a claim from yourselves or anyone associated with FHA Marketing.

    4. People ‘who appear to have written blogs on the internet’ were very similar to our circumstance, where clients are brought out to offices and given a hard sale to pay upfront admin fees but heard no update on the progress of their claims.

    5. There are no proof or actual testimonials that validates FHA Marketing of successfully winning any claim.

    6. We concluded it’s all a sc**.

    If you can provide evidence which disproves the above, we are happy to speak with you in the future.

    Until you have provided this evidence, please remove our names and contact details from your data base, as we do not wish to be contacted by you or anyone representing FHA Marketing or similar cold calling companies.

    Kind regards.

    My wife and I are also timeshare holders at CLC World and are desperate to get out. We were contacted by FHA Marketing who promised a ‘no win, no fee’ claim against Shawbrook Bank (based in Chelmsford). The promised a 70:30 return in less than 9 months. After reading these posts, I’m happy to say I will not be driving from London to their office address : Unit 8 Elm Court, Copse Drive, Meriden Business Park, Meriden, Coventry, CV5 9RG.

    • Cameron says:

      You can get out of your CLC timeshare at any time with no penalties. I had an email from the Resort Development Organisation a couple of years ago confirming this. Of course, you won’t get any money back, but you’ll be able to avoid having to pay the yearly maintenance fee.

    I sadly think I may have been co**** out of £1000 at the weekend by Standon Mortimer Associates,in Meriden Coventry ,5 hour meeting to get a 70/30 ssplit in my favour using a section 75 ,then they wanted £8000 to terminate my contract ,I stupidly paid £1000 deposit ,for this using the legal partners Taylor Marshall,, CLC member for 11 years ,they said they go after the finance company and credit card company’s for misselling to us .Thay arnt getting the balance … Sad day for my wife and I … any others used this company ,what can I do now

    • Claire says:

      Hi – what happened then to make you decide to pay no more ? We have just done exactly the same so we are concerned

  6. clive says:

    Also been contacted by FHA Marketing and arranged a meeting in Manchester, any advice would be appreciated

    Hi, we have recently received a cold call from FHA Marketing and offered a 70/30 no win no fee claim against Club la Costa and an appointment has been arranged with RSB Legal Ltd in Redditch. Is this legit and has anyone else pursued a claim with this Company.

    • David says:

      Good morning Jayne. I had an appointment with RSB early in May. I was also offered the 70:30 split whereby the Company pursues the banks that loaned you the finance to purchase your CLC timeshare, but they were more interested in me paying up-front legal fees to take claim against CLC themselves, which i declined to do. I signed the paperwork to pursue the claim against the banks / finance people (which incidentally, has a ceiling amount of £30,000) and i await the next stage….. More concerning is the fact that i called into their Redditch office this morning to find that they are no longer there, and that the offices (still with the same furniture in) are now being used by a Company called “Holiday Rewards”. No idea if they are linked in any way but in this industry, it is quite possible. I decide to call the Manchester office to inquire about the state of my claim (awaiting a call back now….) and while on the phone, asked what was happening to the Redditch office. I was told it being “refurbished” which is total BS. I am now very suspicious, but fortunately, i have not parted with any money. I would advise you to proceed with caution. I have spent the last 2 years trying to find a legitimate Company with which to pursue a claim against CLC, and i am still not sure i have found one. I would be very interested to know if you had or are waiting to have, your Redditch appointment.
