I am looking for a solicitor who can advise me on timeshare
System of Law: England-and-Wales
I am trying to get advise on rising managment fees
and maybe selling. Have tried on-line but cannot get impartial help
Hello and thank you for your question, which I will be happy to assist you with. Please explain your situation a little more?
Can you please retype your response, all I received was a comma
I have been cold called by a company called European fair trading who say they are taking timeshare companies to court because of excessive management fees. They say I may be due compensation and I have an appointment to meet them in Cambridge. I need to know if they are a bona fide company. They stress that no money is needed up front. I get many calls re my timeshare they are all scams. I really would like to get my name off these databases. The company have my floating week with is Petchey Leisure
do you have more details on this company, such as contact details, website, etc?
For Ben Jones only
Could you please type the email address inserting a space after the @ symbol (for example abc@ def.com). This is because the system automatically blocks full email addresses so this is one way of being able to view and verify it.
I have done some research into this company and here are my findings. They have previously been flagged up by the MindTimeshare organization which deals with potential scams and they have an interesting article on them here:http://mindtimeshare.me/2011/09/21/european-fair-trade-advisory-group-%E2%80%93-eftag-%E2%80%93-the-new-itra/You will see that there are a number of points that expose them as a non-bona fide company.Also the domain name they use for their email communications does not properly exist a a website so they have no 'face' with the public that one can look at and determine if what they have to offer is legitimate. Based on the above, I would recommend you stay away from them.As to preventing future contact that could be difficult. They could be getting your details from publicly available documents or your information may have been sold by companies and tracing the origin is difficult.Important information: As professionals on this site, it is extremely important that our customers rate the service we provided. This only takes a few seconds. I would therefore be grateful if you could please choose one of the following options: OK Service, Good Service or Excellent Service. If you feel the need to leave a lower rating, please reply to me first with any further questions you have. I will be happy to assist further and clarify anything you need me to. Thank you
