A new resale company by the name of Ultimate Transfer Services or UTS has been brought to our attention recently.
This company registered their website http://u-t-s.net/ at the end of March 2012 and as per this website they seem to be based in Mahon, Menorca, Balearic Islands.
On the website which lacks of any information about the company itself, there is neither a telephone number for contact and it all goes through a contact form.
But once they are talking to the consumer they do give out a telephone number which is:
Ultimate Transfer Services claims to be “brokers” of the timeshare resale business and re-assure that all their employees have many years’ experience in the timeshare Industry.
Real shame is that they ask for an upfront fee though….which goes against the Timeshare Directive and as an experienced resale company they should be aware of this.
On the web they do mention something about the payment:
“Guarantees are placed with Third party service providers through Visa or Mastercard, this ensures that completion runs smoothly and that we only work with serious sellers and Buyers.”
Apart from the fact that asking for an upfront fee goes against the law, please note that when a payment is taken by a “third party” the bank will make a lot of problems at point of a refund request. If claiming a refund is not that easy as they say, having paid a deposit to a company which is not the same as UTS the bank will actually refuse the refund claim until you proof the connection between the 2 companies! So please be aware of this.
Have you been contacted by UTS – Ultimate Transfer Services from 08458620457
Please let us know.
