Have you been offered a free holiday abroad with CLC World Resorts & Hotels?

What to expect .. You will be asked to attend a short consultation whilst on holiday.
This will most likely last the ENTIRE DAY and involve HARD SELLING TECHNIQUES.Whilst showing you beautiful glossy images they ask you: "how important is family time?"You don't need to purchase an expensive timeshare to prove your devotion to your family.They sell fractional ownership (weeks) that would normally cost £20,000 but you can purchase 'TODAY ONLY' for £13,910.00!NEVER succumb to HIGH PRESSURE, UNSCRUPULOUS SELLING TECHNIQUES!!Included in the deal are many weekend/short breaks in the UK/Europe shown at unbelievably low prices on their website.Many of these deals won't actually exist or be available in the real world for various reasons.If you ask to have a private chat with your partner, they will encourage this.Then track you down after a couple of minutes for a decision! They don't want you to over-scrutinize. Lots of sales = lots of commission.CLC sell their fractions as a 'holiday investment' not a timeshare.Let's be clear. It's NOT an investment. It is a TIMESHARE. They are very careful NEVER to use that 'dirty' word.If you ask whether you can sell it back to them for the PURCHASE PRICE, they will say YES. In fact, our manager, LEE ROSEN, stated "absolutely, there's a room full of people in there looking to upgrade. It's not a problem, just give us a call and we'll take care of everything for free". We secretly recorded him. (This is not a one-off as CLC like us to believe. This is the standard sales pitch as we have now discovered.)NEVER trust their WORD over your CONTRACT. BIG MISTAKE. Your lawyer should thoroughly check the contract BEFORE you sign. They WEAR YOU DOWN for HOURS and then pounce with a one-time special offer when you're most SUSCEPTIBLE and EXHAUSTED. Once you commit, it is your responsibility to find another purchaser. Your TIMESHARE, your COST, your TIME, your HEADACHE, your DEBT! Good luck finding another buyer!If you agree to go ahead, whilst on holiday abroad, they will take you to a room to arrange a loan there and then.Having spoken to the FCA I realise this is not allowed but they do it anyway.The INTEREST on this fraction could be as much as £15,000.00 with Novuna (previously known as Hitachi) or another finance company!! Giving a GRAND TOTAL PAYABLE BY YOU of £28,910.00.If you mention the high rate of interest, they say it's only temporary because you can seek another loan with a low interest rate when you come back to the UK.This is easier said than done. When you have excessive debt you're UNLIKELY to get another loan so you will be lumbered with HUGE DEBT of £28,910.00 for a WORTHLESS TIMESHARE.If this wasn't bad enough you'll also have to pay MAINTENANCE every year. They tell you it will ALWAYS be in the region of €900 per year.This is another LIE. This could be increased to ANY amount they like. You will be COMMITTED FOR MANY YEARS!!Still fancy signing on the dotted line?Enjoy your free holiday but think VERY CAREFULLY before signing up to any TIMESHARE SCHEME.Do NOT trust celebrity endorsements. I don't. It's just a form of advertising. I certainly don't pay attention to Journalist JENNIE BOND who endorsed Club La Costa. Think of them as a brand with their own agenda.You will find lots of information in the public domain. Don't forget to check Club La Costa at Companies House There are lots of different entities and Directors in all countries including the UK.It was difficult enough when 3 people died in their swimming pool, but now with Covid-19, Club La Costa (UK) plc have gone into voluntary liquidation. Tony Nygate and Mark Shaw at BDO have been appointed Administrators (according to Companies House).Also, if you feel you were mis-sold your timeshare, it's not too late to pursue a compensation claim against the finance company.Be aware of any other business the Directors have formed. Some of these Directors have/had hundreds of companies.

Thank you for reading

Mark RoweABC / Lansdown Financial Ltd etc

Once you make the mistake of taking out a timeshare, do not make another mistake by employing crooks who say they will relinquish your timeshare as well as recover lots of compensation.
When in fact, all they do is TAKE YOUR MONEY, PRINT OUT A CERTIFICATE and say "CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE BEEN RELINQUISHED!"The majority of companies I have come across in the timeshare industry are scamsters, on both sides, so be vigilant.Once again, check Companies House and STEER CLEAR from any COMPANY linked to MARK ROWE, NICOLA ROWE or LORRAINE CHASTEY based in Salisbury, the Midlands and London. They employ a team to carry out the deceit. These people include JO BEAGLEY, LOUISE STEVENSON, CHEYNE SMITH and GINNY SIERRA.------I think the following post on the Moneycheats website says it all: ("CMC - Lansdown Financial Ltd, a police investigation, insolvency & the director who connects it all!According to the FCA register, Lansdown Financial Ltd is a claims management company with temporary permissions with a principal address based in Birmingham and a contact name of Ebow Biney. The firms website lists a contact address is in Coventry, yet records filed with Companies House unearth a very different story.Lansdown Financial Ltd was originally set up in 2015 with a registered office address in Guildford but in July 2017, Mark Thomas Richard Rowe became the new director and moved the RO to Bournemouth. Mark Rowe remained the director until 31st May 2019 where he was replaced by his Finance Manager from one of his other companies – so what happened?According to the records, Mark and Nicola Rowe set up the company Monster Rewards Ltd in 2013 which was involved in timeshare claims and which changed its name in May 2018 to ABC Legal Ltd after being placed under police investigation.In November 2017 a number of allegations of fraud were made in relation to a product sold by Mark Rowe known as “Monster Credits”. The companies named within the allegations that were under investigation include Monster Group SL, Monster Rewards Ltd, Hollywood Marketing SL, Complete Internet Solutions and the trading name SellMyTimeshare.TV. As a result, on Tuesday 28th November 2017 a series of arrests were made across the UK and a number of properties were searched both in the UK and in Tenerife. All persons arrested were released under police investigation.The company name change to ABC Legal Ltd meant the company continued to trade until February 2019 when it was placed into liquidation with debts of £242,317.89, including one to HMRC for £55K.The placing of the company into liquidation has caused one website to query “what will happen to all those clients who have signed up with ABC Lawyers for “compensation claims” and “relinquishments”, are they going to have the work completed?”The website, Inside Timeshare also published a further article on the 29th April 2019 in which it reports it has received “many emails from timeshare owners who have paid for relinquishments and so-called claims through ABC Lawyers, one reader paid around £7,500 for relinquishment and a claim. They were simply told to stop paying the maintenance fees, which they did, they have since found out that Club La Costa terminated their membership on the grounds of non-payment of fees. In other words, ABC Lawyers did nothing, they have also never received a penny of the £30,000 they were promised for their claim, despite signing the contract with ABC in October 2017.”The same article states several of Mark Rowe’s companies are under investigation by the Regional Organised Crime Unit of Somerset and Avon Police as well as the Spanish authorities, so presumably the transfer of CMC regulation to the FCA could not have come at a worse time for his claims management company, Lansdown Financial Ltd?This could explain why Mark Rowe resigned from being the director of Lansdown Financial on 31st May 2019 and was replaced by Lorraine Chastey – whose Linked in Profile describes her as the Finance Manager for Monster Rewards Ltd in Bournemouth.Mark Rowe continues to work as a Business Consultant to the CMC following its “sale” and is “continuing to work with the management and new owners to drive our incredible business model forward to deliver value for shareholders and our client base.”"------The following article is written by Andrew Penman from The Mirror in December 2016:"The Timeshare Consumer Association claims to be an independent consumer champion, but is it?...The timeshare market is awash with owners desperate to sell unwanted units to escape ever rising annual maintenance bills.Which is why websites like the Timeshare Consumer Association (TCA) with its promise of “friendly independent advice” seem so useful.But how independent is it?Buried in a corner of the website was a mention – now removed – that it was owned by a company with the number 8143115.This is Tolmex Limited, whose director is Mark Rowe."
