After being cold called from so many different firms over the years.. countless times trying to sucker me in for numerous different reasons, I have decided to do the public a service and make my own blog. I will dissect all these companies 1 by 1 in the event to eventually let the world know who are scammers and who are legitimate companies actually here to help us…

Holiday Offer from Resorts4all?

Are you one of the timeshare consumers who received a cold call from Resorts4all? Because this week it seems a lot of people have!

Resorts4all with telephone 911871531 and website http://www.resorts4all.com has started a cold call campaign inviting timeshare consumers to their resorts for a promotional week.

The website looks great and the destinations are certainly very attractive, and the offer being good makes it all very appealing to say yes.

But who are Resorts4all, and first of all where did they get your details? Because none of the consumers who were approached, remembered filling in their details for a promotional holiday.

But it is a bit more complicated than only a cold call for a fly buy holiday.
The offer goes as far as mentioning to the consumer that they can join a Group Action against their timeshare resort / company. Some agents go as far as telling the consumer that their resort has gone into Bankruptcy or are about to because millions of euros owed, and the consumer should join a group demand against their resort.

When looking at the company details, things start to get clear.
On the contact page the main company name is mentioned: Day International Marketing S.L.
Yes, the company that is also connected to Reclaimgc, Voyager Travel and Lifestyle Holidays.

Do we need to say more?

So for those who have been called by Resorts4all from phone number 911871531 or 0203 519 4683 and are considering to take up the offer, please be aware you might end up with spending more money than expected!

Visiting Tenerife this summer?

Tenerife, one of the most popular Canary Islands is a lovely place to visit and guarantee for sunshine the whole year round. But unfortunately Tenerife is also starting to be a melting pot of different dubious companies that can turn the happy holidays into an unforgettable nightmare!

A person very well known by the police and authorities because of his dubious past has recently expanded his “dubious” businesses from Gran Canaria to Tenerife to trap more “happy holiday makers” into the web of his different questionable adventures.

This person is Eugene Kaiser, a German national based in Gran Canaria, former Anfi Group Sales Director, arrested twice by the Spanish Police in the past, and who has tried to destroy since 2003 his former employer Anfi Group, although more recently he has found the formula to profit from this timeshare company.

Since early 2000´s he has been running a number of dubious holiday club memberships: Columbus Imperial Club, Design Vacation Exchange and Voyager since 2007.

Voyager is the current dubious discount holiday club membership sold, not only in Gran Canaria, but also in Tenerife, and Norway.

The way to catch the clients for a presentation has been done through OPC’s handing out scratch cards on the streets and always falsely claiming to be promoting the island as a holiday destination on behalf of the island tourism public body.

Since 2009 Eugene Kaiser has been running a supposed Class Action scheme ReclaimGC – http://www.reclaimgc.com – as a “honey trap” to sell the costly holiday club membership Voyager – http://www.voyager-travel.net . To promote the Class Action, Kaiser has even created an online platform Claims Directive – http://www.claimsdirective.com .

About this Class Action Scheme ReclaimGC we put already a warning on our blog no so long ago: http://wp.me/p1kmoi-3q and an update on this article (http://t.co/7CsXQBX) with the worrying news that ReclaimGC is actually working together with Mason, Goodwin & Lisco (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-1K) a dubious legal consultancy.

Although initially ReclaimGC was launched from Gran Canaria to target Anfi Members, later on it has expanded to any timeshare owner who purchased in Spain, particularly since it opened an office in Tenerife. It has been working with lists of timeshare owners of other resorts obtained unlawfully, not only Anfi Members.

Gran Canaria Resorts (GC Resorts) – http://gcresorts.com and http://www.gc-resorts.com – is the latest scheme set up by Eugen Kaiser this year, acting as a traditional company that invites people to go holidays.

Gran Canaria Resorts is cold calling initially timeshare owners and pretending to be employees from good reputation timeshare companies, promising holiday accommodations at top resorts worldwide, at a discount price, and also contacting consumers that bought a bogus holiday club in general with similar offers. Once visiting their landing page on internet, they actually claim not being connected with these timeshare companies. At all!

The timeshare owners that are cold called and think they are talking to a timeshare companies employees, are being offered promotions like unlimited availability in gold crown resorts with 2 free extra holidays.

However, timeshare owners who have accepted their offer so far, have had a nasty surprise, when finally they receive an email from Gran Canaria resorts, in which they are informed that they can only book accommodation, at poor quality Canary Islands, and Thailand resorts!

In the Terms & Conditions of the contractual agreement between Gran Canaria Resorts and its clients, it is mentioned the obligation to attend a meeting at the resort where their clients will be staying. So this makes the circle complete, as the timeshare owner will most probably be presented with Voyager ( http://www.voyager-travel.net) and the ReclaimGC scheme..

So what is the conclusion out of all this? We have many timeshare consumers who have already reported the dubious dealings of the above mentioned companies; we have the testimonials of so many more about how their holidays turned into a nightmare as they lost so much money …and what about the image this creates of Tenerife and Gran Canaria?

What is the role of the authorities here? Do they care people will most probably not come back to Tenerife any longer due to this experience? Are they looking into these companies when they receive so many complaints and reports from both police and consumer offices?

Have you signed up for ReclaimGC, Voyager, Gran Canaria Resorts?

Let us know! We can help you!
