Apart from many companies cold calling and offering claims against the resorts, or even the exchange companies, we also see an increase in the so-called Recovery Room Fraud.
This type of fraud is a method where scammers contact victims of previous frauds (often by cold calling) and claim to be able to recover previously lost funds.
When these fraudsters target victims of timeshare frauds they usually claim to be a legal professional or a representative of a government agency (normally within the country where the original timeshare property was based) in order to appear legitimate.
Fraudsters already know personal information
The fraudsters know personal details about the victim and their previous dealings with other bogus companies, which gives them credibility. They claim that the advanced fees requested are for “local taxes’ or ‘litigation costs’ incurred during the recovery of the funds.
It is suspected that the persons behind these kinds of fraudulent set ups are often the same people involved in the original scams even though these crimes may have occurred years earlier.
Please do not fall into this trap!
If you receive a cold call, with whatever offer related to your timeshare or Holiday ownership, do contact us and we can provide information about the company or check them out.
I have been contacted by CSL Marketing regarding my Timeshare at the Kololi Beach club in the Gambia with regard to relieving me of it, due to the perpetuity clause as my children are not interested in taking it over.
We have not got down to details as yet, no up front money has been mentioned, but a charge would be applied when(and if!) the unit is sold.
I note that they are on your cold caller list, do you think it is better to walk away when they are phoning back in a few days time and not take it any further?
Claim your Claim contacted me to offer “All my
money back on my time share in CLC”
They offer a free holiday in Tenerife and a claim on Lloyd’s , Barclays etc banks who perpetuated mid-selling and legislation in the EC of Justice had said people can claim.
They claim 100% success rate but I cannot find anything about the legislation!!!
They have contacted me in the last few weeks, they sent me a proforma document to read over and I have an address from them as follows; Litigation Services SL ,Calle Coronel Ripolet 6, Edif Santos Rein 3-A, 29640 Fuengirola, Malaga Spain. Tel; 0034 951120266 Fax (uk number) 0871 266 8118 Company Registration no, B93268936.
They asked for a nominal fee of £339.00 After I return my agreement with them authorising them to instruct a lawyer,
I will not be paying this fee.
Having been looking ourselves for 18 years, I have yet to find one! An outfit by the name of “Travel & Leisure” (Christina Mills) 0800 071 1372 :-
“Backed up by years of experience, we have made selling timeshare properties easier than ever before”
(translation :- we make relieving you of even more of your already sca**** cash, a doddle!)
even endorsed by Diamond, relieved me of £ hundreds promising a successful outcome within a year, but exactly a year later (“Laura”) offered me a reduced price to keep us on their “books” But please do let us know if you are more successful than we have been! Good luck..
Just FYI from this latest cold caller introduced by an intermediary agency earlier this week
Any previous knowledge about this outfit offering:-
“This consultation is a No win No Fee service and there are as explained no hidden charges with our company”.
Look forward to any advice you are able to offer?

I have just been rung by the Claims Centre from Birmingham on number 03332122505 no upfront cost pay 30% when they have successfully got me out of Diamond. As my visitors arrived it was a good time to end their call as I had just read your cold callers list for April.
Yup, Timeshare Council are at it big time according to Who calls me. They just called me but happily, I wasn’t in. I have reported them to information Commissioner
I have been cold called by a company calling themselves Timeshare Compensation,phone number 02921202254 or 08000465640. name of Andrew Frazer.
Apparently they are able to get me out of my original Timeshare contract, within about 12 weeks, particularly if the words “in perpetuity” are in the details.
They have apparently associated offices in Bournemouth, York and Stratford on Avon, where I would have to attend a meeting with a consultant , where he would go through my original paperwork and charge me £99.for the pleasure.
I would then be informed of further charges!
Do you know of these people, have you come across them before, and do you have any advise for me? Should I steer well clear of them?
Do you know of any genuine Timeshare resellers who I could place mine with in an effort to sell it?
Always steer clear of cold callers whether it be boilers or timeshare. Have you asked your timeshare company what they can do? There are options. And, no, I don’t work for a timeshare company! ✈️🌅
