The TCA were recently contacted by a credible industry source with an update on our article from February 2016 regarding The Timeshare Mart Con.
The TCA believed that the director of The Timeshare Mart Limited, Mr Tony Cole, had ceased trading and set up a new limited company called, Exclusive Timeshare Limited. From our sources investigation on the Companies House website, The Timeshare Mart Limited has not ceased trading and on 4th November 2014, the compulsory strike-off application had been discontinued so it is believed Mr Tony Cole is now trading from both companies.
Upon looking at the website www.thetimesharemart.com it still shows that it is trading via eBay and using social media to update and promote the company. As this article is being written, the eBay user, thetimesharemart, has 56 active listings ranging from £1,450 for a Seasons 1 bedroom red week all the way up to £54,995 for 2-weeks in The Crane Resort, Barbados. Generously he offers free postage and packaging on the purchase!
It also states on the website a different registered office address of; 1 Great Eastern Road, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2TJ rather than the one actually listed with Companies House of; 1st Floor, Navigation House, Hamilton Road, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2UU.
We have received quite a few calls now from duped Timeshare Mart clients so they may be interested to see Mr Cole’s T&Cs with new contact details
