On the 24th of September 2014 the TCA published an article “Not on this planet”.
The article reported that KwikChex had recovered £80 million on behalf of consumers.
That Claim was amended by the “The Mail on Sunday” shortly after the TCA publish its article, however a similar article in another news paper was claiming the same £80million.
Since that publication and to date no one has complained in respect to the contents of the TCA article. Today we have learned that Mr. Emmins, KwikChex and the Timeshare Task Force have asked for the article to remove it as it is claimed that the TCA article alleges dishonesty by Mr. Emmins and his company.
Mr. Emmins has provided information to the TCA which exonerates him for the story published by the “The Mail on Sunday”. “The Mail on Sunday” states:-
“The original Mail on Sunday version of this story contained an inaccurate figure for the sums repaid. The error was not caused by the Timeshare Task Force who at all times have stated the accurate figure of £80,000.”
Clearly the mistake was not that of the timeshare task force, KwikChex or Mr Emmins.
In respect to the TCA alleging dishonesty by Mr. Emmins and his company in the TCA article we utter refute the suggestion. At no times have we alleged, allude to infer or imply dishonestly by anyone.
We have to date not received Mr. Emmins full complaint however would like to make it ABUNDANTLY clear to any and all readers of the TCA website that obviously the Mail on Sunday article was authored in error by the Mail on Sunday and inferred a reality which did not exist. Moreover the TCA merely righted the half-truths contained in this major tabloid.
The TCA unequivocally apologies to Mr Emmins, kwikChex and the Timeshare Task force if by way of mistake or representation the article did infer (as suggested) dishonesty as at all material times it was not meant to do so.
