We are now in the high summer months and although it looks like everybody is on holidays, obviously there are still a lot of companies out there who continue to be active with cold calls and unsolicited mails and letters.
For the month of July, we have counted 35 Active companies of which 10 companies are new.
For a complete list of the active companies from July 2021, please click on the following link:
The main subject of the cold callers keeps on being the supposed court claims and the fact all timeshare consumers can claim and get the money back they paid, or even double the amounts.
It is very worrying to see how so many people are dragged into paying an upfront deposit for services of so-called claims companies and their legal associates, during the zoom meetings with the “consultants”.
If before we warned about going into sales meetings and other meetings in person on holiday and ending up paying money as the consumer felt trapped and was under the impression, they wouldn’t let them out there… now this has moved to the comfort of the home and zoom meetings that last and last hours.
Without wanting to repeat ourselves, we must stress and insist that you should NOT PAY anybody who has approached you on a cold call or through another company or person who cold called you.
Do NOT PAY any money to people that offer you “free advice” and then ask you to pay during a meeting on the computer without giving you time to check the facts and think things over.
Sad enough the “carrot” is no longer the supposed claim through the courts and getting the money back, there is another reason why people end up paying money for these fake services.
There is another FAKE story these companies tell the consumer and this is about the relinquishment of the timeshare that was never processed or registered and the upcoming debt collectors for years and years of fees plus interest.
Please, if you relinquished your timeshare years ago, we assure you that NOBODY is coming after you for thousands of pounds of outstanding fees.
And if you are not sure if you relinquished (despite not having paid any fees over the past years and not receiving any invoices…) TALK TO YOUR RESORT!
They are the only ones who can clarify this matter with you.
It is really frustrating to see how these people are trapping so many consumers in their webs repeatedly.
And a special warning to all those who have elderly parents with a timeshare, please warn them as these companies seem to be targeting mainly the elderly.
If you received a cold call about your timeshare or holiday ownership, please let us know.
Whoever has called you, we are interested in knowing their name!
Thanks for all the consumers who keep us updated every single day, this is so helpful, and the information is of great value.
