We are receiving inquiries from concerned consumers about cold calls from people claiming to be calling on behalf of the Timeshare Registration Office.
Although this might sound “official”, in reality the name raises our eyebrows straight away as there is no such thing as an office where all timeshare is registered.
Neither is there a company registered by the name of Timeshare Registration Office.
Most of the calls are coming from the number 01246891100 but some people mentioned different numbers from the Chesterfield area.
The agents calling from this so-called office are offering claims assessments and cancellation procedures, but it becomes soon clear that it isn’t them who are going to deliver these services.
Soon as they notice the slightest interest of the consumer, they divert them to a company in Mallorca and they are keen to arrange a zoom meeting.
This seems to be a way around the fact that cold calling should not be admitted for offering legal services, and the claims companies not wanting to be classed as cold callers.
Although cold calls on itself are not illegal, they are breaching the law when the caller is not really “cold” calling. Companies such as The Timeshare Registration Offices are consciously targeting the consumer as they seem to have private details from the consumers such as contact details, where they own their timeshare etc.
That information is not open to anybody and is exactly the information that is protected by the Data Protection Law!
So, using client information which has not been provided by the consumer, is in breach with the law.
Any claims/legal company accepting clients who have been approached on cold calls, are therefor in breach with this law as well.
This can actually be reported with the government and any company involved in offering services through cold calls, even if they are the second in line or maybe third, should be reported.
Mindtimeshare will be assisting consumers who want to report companies that cold call them and obviously are in breach with the Law on Data Protection.
If you have received a cold call as well from the Timeshare Registration Office or any other company offering you services regarding your timeshare and holding your private information, please let us know.
