Worldwide Resorts, calling to extend your accommodation package for £99 only.

Captura de pantalla 2016-05-09 a la(s) 09.28.18

A new cold calling Fly Buy Company has been spotted since last week. Their name is Worldwide Resorts.

This company contacts consumers out of the blue and already knows they own a timeshare and where they own this.

The pitch from the agent of Worldwide Resorts is that the timeshare owner received bonus weeks in the past or already purchased an accommodation package from a similar company, and these weeks are now about to expire.

But Worldwide Resorts will kindly extend the validation of these weeks for £99

The timeshare consumer is quickly asked for their credit card and given no time to think about this, or to do a bit of research.

Worldwide Resorts must sound very convincing because the consumer does not even recall having received or purchased any bonus weeks in the past, and still falls for the payment of £99

Doing research on Worldwide Resorts, the website http://www.worldwideresorts.biz does not really give a lot of information apart from the destinations you can travel to.

There is no company registration number, no address or any other basic company information, which is obligated by law, no terms and conditions, no privacy statement and not even any contact details. Nothing really.

They call from a UK number +44 0141 2808 001 which clearly gives the impression they are UK based.

It is only when the charge of £99 is processed and a confirmation email send from info@worldwideresorts.biz an address is displayed as Apartado 12, Avenida Pais Valencia 23, Alfaz del Pi. This must be for correspondence only as this is a post box!

Cold calls are never a good sign, added up to the fact this company does not identify themselves properly on the web and giving the consumer the impression they have dealt with them before or that they are linked to their holiday company, it certainly does not sound recommendable.

Please note as well that payments under £100 cannot be claimed back under the Consumer Act. So once you pay, it is very unlikely you see the £99 back.

If you received a call from Worldwide Resorts from 01412808001 then we would like to know.

You can contact us by email at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog.

Did you receive a (cold) call from Warwickshire consultants for a legal claim?

Captura de pantalla 2016-02-24 a la(s) 11.59.27

New cold callers in the list by the name of Warwickshire Consultants.

A company who claims to be working alongside a registered legal company RSB Legal and who are supposedly running claims against the resorts.

Agents who appear to be speaking from a script do the calls from Warwickshire Consultants and any questions outside their script seem to be difficult to answer.

For example, the question of where they obtained the consumer’s personal and private details was replied to after 2 days and the agent claimed that it was the resort who actually provided the details. The resort that is who is the subject of their court claim…yeah right.

After the initial “warming up” call a follow up email arrives from info@warwickshireconsultants.co.uk with all the reasons why the timeshare owner should enter a claim. These reasons being the same ones as all the other “claims companies” use, such as perpetuity, mis selling, rising of maintenance fees, etc.

Obviously we have heard this all before and we fear the worse.

Consumers are as expected invited to a meeting to discuss all this with the “legal team”.

The website from Warwickshire Consultants www.warwickshireconsultants.co.uk was only launched over a month ago. Seems a very short time for a company to claim to have been successful in many cases already.

Contact number displayed on the web for Warwickshire consultants is (0044) 0121 6676 540

Consumers can contact the company by filling in the contact form, but there is no privacy statement on this web so there is no guarantee at all of where these details might end up.

Neither is there any proper company information on the web, such as an office address or company house registration, details that are stipulated to be there by law.

We would recommend caution with companies like Warwickshire Consultants who invite you to a meeting as a result of their cold call and certainly even more caution if you decide to attend such meeting.

We cannot stress enough that there are no such offers as those valid on the day only.

Don’t take anybody’s word for granted and always double check the facts before making a decision based on those facts.

If Warwickshire consultants from 01216676540 have contacted you then we would like to have your feedback. You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog.

Who has been speaking to the tax office (Inland Revenue office) in Madrid about a compensation payment?

Captura de pantalla 2016-03-03 a la(s) 10.19.04

Strange cold calls are received lately by the timeshare owners who have fallen victim before of dubious resale companies.

One of those strange cold calls comes supposedly from the “Inland Revenue” office in Spain, the tax office in Madrid.

Straight on the first call the agent calling from the ADMINISTRACIÓN JUDICIAL informs the consumer that he has been awarded money in compensation for paying a bogus company in the past, which is now closed down.

But, you probably already expected this; there are taxes to be paid before the money can be transferred into the consumers account.

And these taxes need to be paid using the NIE number of the consumer, so if he doesn’t have an NIE number, he also needs to arrange for that.

Luckily the agent from Administracion Judicial can help with all these matters, against a payment of course.

In order to back this story up the consumer is send by email a range of official looking forms, supposedly produced by the tax offices and a bank account in the name of an individual to pay the taxes.

Contact details for this Inland Revenue / Madrid Tax offices are:

ADMINISTRACIÓN JUDICIAL


Calle Castelló 123
28006 Madrid

Telephone: +34 910 601 721
Fax: +34 917 903 570

Email: secretariado@europe.com

Please be aware that there is no such thing as Tax offices calling to pay out money that has been awarded in compensation without any prior knowledge of this.

Neither are taxes paid into the accounts under individual’s names nor is an NIE number needed.

If the Administración Judicial from 0034910601721 has contacted you already then please let us know!

You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on the blog.

Beware of cold callers by the name of AEC Gestion or AEC Formacion y Consultoria de Gestion!

Captura de pantalla 2016-04-26 a la(s) 09.56.20

A new cold caller has been detected using the name of AEC Gestion although on their paperwork the full name is mentioned as AEC Formacion y Consultoria de Gestion.

The agent from AEC Gestion calls with the news that they are acting for the liquidators of the company Cashback Europe and that the consumer i son the list to receive money back from this certificate.

It doesn’t seem to bother if the certificate holder tried to claim it already and failed, as per the agent of AEC Gestion everybody can claim.

All the certificate holder needs to do is fill in a claims form which he/she will forward by email and wait for the money to be transferred.

The claims form can only be send back by email or fax, they don’t accept post. (Did we hear this before?)

Address and contact details for AEC GestionAEC Formacion y Consultoria de Gestion are as follows:

Calle Tomas De Ibarra 26, Local 1. Tomares, Sevilla, 41001

Telephone:0034 951 650 416 and E-mail: aecgestion@post.com

Research has shown that there is no such company by the name of AEC Gestion – AEC Formacion y Consultoria de Gestion at the given address or in Spain and neither is there such company registered at the Spanish Companies House.

If AEC Gestion contacts you from 0034951650416 we recommend caution and certainly advice against sending them any further personal information, as you cannot know where this will end up.

In any case when you receive such call or a similar offer from another company, then please let us know.

Avez-vous reçu des appels par la société Manour Eurobasée à Marrakech?

Captura de pantalla 2016-04-22 a la(s) 08.15.38

Cette alerte aux consommateurs sort pour les entreprises de revente Mansour Euro, basée à Marrakech et avec un pitch (argument commercial) très semblable lorsque elles contactent les clients avec des appels à froid.

Mansour Euro contacte principalement les consommateurs de France et Belgique et leur offre de racheter leurs multipropriétés. Afin de vendre la multipropriété le propriétaire doit se rendre à Marrakech et assister à une réunion avec un prétendu acheteur.

Ils expliquent aux consommateurs qu’il existe déjà un prix de vente convenu et que le prix est étonnamment élevé dans le seul but de convaincre le consommateur de la bonne affaire qui est offert.

Leur adresse est Immueble Yacoub Al Mansour n 04, 3eme etage, 40000, Marrakech (Maroc) et numéro de téléphone +00212 620 354 609; adresse email: mansoureuro.ste@gmail.com & contact@mansoureuro.com

Site web http://mansoureuro.com enregistré en Janvier 2016

L’agent de Mansour Euro explique, il n’y a pas de paiement initial. Mais lorsque le consommateur reçoit l’email de confirmation, il est un ” Code confidentiel».

Lorsque l’accès au Web avec ce code, il y a une PROTOCOLE DE CONVENTION DE CESSION DE DROIT D’OCCUPATION-

Ici, ils disent clairement: Une caution de 499 € doit être versée avant tout déplacement correspondant à la constitution du dossier, la vérification de votre bien, les frais juridiques et de traduction ainsi que la prise de rendez vous pour le jour de la transaction et la possibilité de séjourner gratuitement jusqu’à 7 nuits dans un hôtel 4* à Marrakech.

Cela ne ressemble pas à “aucun paiement”!

Veuillez noter que les entreprises qui vous appellent à froid, ils ont évidemment obtenu vos coordonnées et les détails d’adhésion par le biais d’une source illégale et s’elles vous offrent une garantie de revente demandant de se rendre à un autre pays et payer des frais initiaux … elles ne sont pas dignes de confiance!

Avez-vous été contacté par Mansour Euro par le numéro +00212620354609? S’il vous plaît, faites-nous savoir.

Have you received cold calls from Mansour Euro based in Marrakech?

Captura de pantalla 2016-04-22 a la(s) 08.15.38

This alert goes out for a company called Mansour Euro which is a timeshare resale company, based in Marrakech and with a very familiar pitch.

Mansour Euro contacts consumers mainly in France and Belgium and offers to buy their timeshare. In order to sell the timeshare, the owner must go to Marrakech and attend a meeting with an alleged buyer.

They explain to the consumers that there is already an agreed sale price and the price is surprisingly high for the sole purpose of convincing the consumer of the good deal.

Their address is Immueble Yacoub Al Mansour n 04, 3eme etage, 40000, Marrakech (Maroc) and telephone number +00212 620 354 609; email: mansoureuro.ste@gmail.com & contact@mansoureuro.com

http://mansoureuro.com This website was registered in January 2016

The Mansour Euro officer explains that there is no down payment. But when the consumer receives the confirmation email, it contains a “confidential Code”.

When you access the Web with this code, there is a PROTOCOL RIGHT TRANSFER AGREEMENT OCCUPATION-

Here they say clearly: A deposit of € 499 must be paid before any movement corresponding to the creation of the record, verification of your property, legal fees and translation as well as making appointments for the day of the transaction and the opportunity to stay for free up to 7 nights in a 4 * hotel in Marrakech.

This does not sound like “no payment”!

Please note that companies that cold call you, obviously got your contact information and membership details through an illegal source and when they offer a guaranteed resale requesting you to travel to another country and pay upfront fees … they are not trustworthy!

Have you been contacted by Mansour Euro with the number +00212620354609? Please, let us know.
