Appointing Consultants, setting appointments through cold calls.

A new cold caller has appeared by the name of Appointing Consultants.

New name, but not really a new pitch.

They are surprisingly similar to several other cold callers that have been making appointments for meetings to discuss claims against the resorts.

Their website – www.appointingconsultants.co.uk/ -, registered only this month of August also looks familiar.

Although the website indicates they are a company that can help businesses with the different aspects of their marketing, and for example make appointments on their behalf, the people calling from this “Appointing Consultants” go as far as assuring the consumers that they have a good base to claim against their resort.

Something that seems a bit odd for a telemarketer who is hired to make appointments on behalf of a third party company.

Contact details of Appointing Consultants are an email address admin@appointingconsultants.co.uk and a telephone number: 0121 667 3458 which is not mentioned on the web.

Neither is there any Company House registration number or office address.

For as much as the caller might sound convincing, please always be careful with cold calls.

Ask them the basic questions of “how did you get my personal / private details?” “On behalf of which company are you calling?” “Who is actually doing this meeting?”

“What are the company details? Address, Companies House registration, etc…

If you have received a call already from Appointing Consultants, using telephone number 01216673458, please let us know.

    I just received a cold-call from a male claiming to be from ‘Appointing Consultants’. He said they were in Birmingham but couldn’t give me an actual address. Usual stuff, updating their records about our DRI membership. He gave me his number as 0121 667 3458 but a 1471 gave the number 0121 392 2553, the same number used by ‘Edwards Consultancy’, Leyland Marketing; and ‘Timeshare Soultions’.

    I received a call from these people yesterday. It was a speculative call based on them asking if I was still a member of Club La Costa or another timeshare club. They had got my details from a database they had bought into. They offered the usual no win/no fee and a 75/35% split of any monies received. They had a familiar line to others who have called us: new Spanish laws on mis-selling timeshares; perpetuity clauses; points and fractionals; high maintenance fees; poor availability; compensation while still retaining timeshares, etc. It would involve a 5-minute chat answering questions on the phone to see if we would be eligible to meet a consultant. After talking long enough to get the above information, I told them I was not interested. However, I can see how owners can be persuaded by these smooth talking and convincing callers to try to recover some money from their timeshares.
