I received a call on my mobile a couple of days back from a Sales and Marketing personnel from Global Europe saying that they can sell my timeshare. Was a little suspicious as to how they obtained by mobile. The person said that the company Global Europe is recognised and endorsed by CASE, which made me even more suspicious. However, I decided to play along and see just what they are up to.

I met up with them at Maxwell House and discovered that they were previously known as Vanasia.. Haha.. They say that they can sell my timeshare in the UK market for about 20k (yeah right!). They said that however, I need to come up with an upfront fee of 3888 to pay for the admin costs and advertising. They will advertise my timeshare for me for a period of 2 years on the internet and UK local newpapers. They will give me a login user id and password so that I can go on the internet to check on my advert. Lastly, they said that if they are unable to get a buyer within a period of 24 months, they will refund my money.

They showed me a letter from a satisfied ex-timeshare owner to CASE saying that he was happy to get rid of his timeshare through Global Europe. The sales executive challenged me to call CASE to check out as to the validity of the letter. I told the person that I would but I will definitely not commit to anything until I have fully checked out Global Europe's credentials with CASE as well as the forums I'm subscribed to now. When the person realised that I wasn't going to pay the 4k on the spot (pls, 1 lesson is enuff.. wun fall for the same trick again), she tried some hard selling tactics by saying that she can only give me another day's grace to check out the details following which I wun be able to sell through them anymore cos if I can't trust them, then it's no point doing business (oh pls... spare me the crap.) If you are some legit company only interested in selling the timeshare for me, then you should encourage me to go and check you out and satisfy myself that you are for real right? Also, why should there be a time frame expiry to take up the offer to sell? You mean to say that if I wait another 5 days, the resale market would have changed so drastically that you would have problems selling my timeshare? If that is so, then why wait 24 months to refund my money if you can't get a buyer? You should be able to find out if there is a market out there within a month and refund the money immediately right? Anyways, I was firm about not giving them a cent and left.

Wonder if the people here experienced anything similar with this new company?

Hi,

I too have received a phone call from the above comapny that you have mentioned Global Europe. Are they really going to help to cancel the contract or they just want to get some more money from us? Need your advice.

Hi A Ng,

I have just recieved information that Global Europe was located at 04-01, Maxwell House. But Vanasia is located at 08-01. You have mentioned in the above article that both companies are the same. Are both companies same? Need your advice.

I think they are the same company but they did help me sell and I'm wondering if I am the only one they helped to sell....
