Marketing Advice Centre, calling on behalf of who?

It seems like common practice that there are companies cold calling when the company offering the services is another one. Well, at least they use another company name.

This is also the case with one of the latest cold callers by the name of Marketing Advice Centre.

They cold-call timeshare consumers and ask them about their timeshare and explain that although they might have relinquished in the past, the consumer is still liable for the fees and the resort will come after them for the debt.

A debt which throughout the years must have mounted up to thousands of euros.

But before the consumer enters a panic attack, Marketing Advice Centre offers the solution to this problem!

A professional claims company who can help them with cancelling the membership once and for all, and on top of this claim back the money they paid for the membership.

This supposed “professional” company is “Arbitration Consultants

Indeed, the same company Arbitration Consultants as in our warning which you can read on the following link:

Arbitration Consultants offers the consumer a zoom meeting where they are explained about their problem with the resort and what Arbitration Consultants would charge for their services.

A substantial upfront deposit of £2000 being 20% of £10,000 fee with promise of refund if unable to cancel the timeshare contract within 12 months

Please note that if you relinquished your membership, your resort is NOT coming to chase you for any outstanding debt! If you have not received any notification from the resort about any fee, for sure your relinquishment was processed when they said it was processed and we have not heard of anybody paying debts of close to 10k for past years fees.

In any case, don’t ever let you convince in a zoom meeting of certain problems and services that can solve them, without doing proper research on all the things said in the meeting, and if needed, contact the resort.

There is no such thing as “legal services” that you need to pay there a then without a proper time to think things over and decide if you really want to go ahead with these services.

If you have been contacted by Marketing Advice Centre or any other company that refers you to Zoom meetings with so called “legal advisers”, please do let us know.

    Hi. We have been approached by the marketing company that you mention in this blog and then by Arbitration Consultants.
    We allowed an hour and a half for this meeting as I had another work meeting after but they said may not be long enough as they had to do checks along the way and this had to be in one sitting to make it viable for them. They stated it was on a no win no fee basis but I now have this suspicion that, after hours of time and effort, it would be ‘ludicrous’ to waste it but not paying some upfront, non related fee? Am I correct?
