Different name for a very same set up…the cold call for an invite to a meeting where the timeshare owner will meet up with a corporate buyer for his timeshare.
Yes one of those, BM Services cold calls the timeshare consumer and then sends off the emails reconfirming what was explained on the phone.
BM Services has a website http://www.bmservices.co.uk which was created in March 2012, so a good 2 weeks old at the moment of this publication.
There are no company identifications on the website, no address, no indication where they are located and who they really are.
Telephone number 0203 582 0453 and email address firstname.lastname@example.org is as far as one will get on contact details.
The email confirmation reads as follows:
“As stated in our telephone call, we are a marketing company working on behalf of a client that specializes in the sale of overseas investment properties. However, they have also been very successful in assisting people in the disposal of unwanted timeshare or points.
At your appointment you will be introduced to two ways of disposing of your unwanted timeshare.
· The first will be a straight forward disposal service; they will explain how this works the timelines and the benefits you gain.
· They will also introduce you to an investment opportunity that will allow you to dispose of your timeshare, receive an immediate above market return and generate a long term income.
As also explained in our telephone conversation they are so confident that their solutions will meet your needs, that if they don’t, they will pay your expenses (up to £100) for your travel and time on the day. All you have to do is listen and decide if either option is for you, if not, just claim your expenses.”
Well, if it was only that easy! Unfortunately this kind of email we have seen already so many times before, and all we got back from the consumers that actually went to these meetings was one same opinion: A complete waste of time!
The meeting is normally about an investment project somewhere far away, and for those not willing or not able to invest any money; well there is no such thing as a corporate buyer for their timeshare, and a lot of times there is not even such a thing as travel expenses paid!
So please before you take up this offer, do consider if you are willing to take the risk of wasting a lot of time.
