Timeshare Resales / Ripped Off

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

We fell for the old timeshare resale con, we then fell for another one that said we could join a class action to get out registration fees back. Just over £2500 down the swanney!!!

We did find a way out via www.getmymoneyback.info but it took some doing. We got our refund for the mythical class action through the credit card company (£900) but have lost out on the resale scam as the credit card company say they cannot investigate the claim fully as the scammers went bust.

Does anyone know if you can still stand a realistic chance if the company is insolvent?

    Been to their website, is this an ebook then? We got lumbered with a nasty case of unwanted holiday club and want to get out of it.

    This site is still up but is showing that the book or kit as they call it will be launched 24 April 09

    Can you post what you paid for it. Less than £14.99 or more?

    I did see that this is maybe a 2nd version, if so then it must be an update!?!

    I'm disgusted to find so little support out there for UK consumers. We got into one form of holiday club "rescue package" in order get rid of our timeshare and reclaim our money.

    We were told to expect about 85% of what looks and appears to be a £17, 000 cheque. turns out it is as good as a betting slip

    But (and heres the big BUT) we have to wait nearly 5 years and get it back through another company called RECLAIM. We have have both googled this and are certain we will get a big fat NOTHING!

    Hindsight is a wonderful but painful thing

    There are ways to effectively get your money back from this scam. I started a website specifically for owners who have been taken using the resale method. www.TimeshareOwnerAdvocates.com . I have all kinds of useful information. Call your credit card company and file a dispute for services not rendered as described. Even if the company went out of business or dissolved, there may still be a reserve on the account in which you can draw your refund from. The resale company has 30 days to respond to a dispute otherwise they rule in your favor. If you find the information here or on my website useful, please visit one of our sponsors websites. Thanks and good luck to you.
