Long time ago since we have seen a cold calling resale company. Most of the cold calls nowadays are from people pretending to be lawyers and legal advisors.
But we now spotted a cold calling resale company using the name of Resales Alliance.
The company Resales Alliance approaches timeshare owners and offer to sell their timeshare membership.
They do these resales through a supposed auction platform on their website.
In case the auction fails they even offer to directly buy the timeshare off the client.
But most of the consumers are lucky and they receive an offer for their timeshare membership.
But the next step is paying the notary fees, because for some strange reason there are notary fees involved in this resale.
The website from Resales Alliance is www.resalesalliance.com but a message comes up that the website is not safe. Not a very good sign when logging into a website!
The fees requested are to be paid into the name of the company which shows as Resales Alliance ® Meridian
With the European law, the Timeshare Consumer Act changed in 2012 it was made more than clear that there is no upfront payment allowed with a timeshare resale.
Neither are we aware of the need of a notary to intervene in a timeshare resale as this is more the job of the Trustee who should change the deed into the name of the new owner.
If you received a call or an offer from the company Resales Alliance for the sale of your timeshare, please let us have your feedback.
Important question is always, how did they get your details and how did they know you are a timeshare owner?
