This is the company which the Timeshare Task Force (TTF) have engaged to assist it in carrying their so called on line verification in the Timeshare Industry.

The company is a self professed Worldwide Reputational Management Company and has a head office in London, 1st Floor, 2 Woodberry Grove, North Finchley, London, N12 0DR. In the real world this head office is not a trading office but merely an office of some other enterprise who offers a head office service.
Mr Emmins has sought to provide Companies House with an Address where it is purportedly where he resides that being: 5 St. Stephens Court, St Stephens Road, Bournemouth, Dorset, England, BH2, which remarkably, is only 2 doors away from Worldwide Timeshare Hyper-Market Ltd (WWTTF) another claimed worldwide organisation. This organisation is controlled by Mr Phil Watson (Lord Timeshare) who is also a Director of the Resort Development and the commissioner of KwikChex services via the WWTTF.

Mr Emmins said to the TCA on 29th November 2014

“By absolute coincidence, KwikChex moved into offices two doors away from WWTH who had been resident long before KwikChex moved into the nearby offices. When KwikChex moved to the offices, we had no relationship or even knowledge of this company or Phil Watson. It was only after we had started work with RDO that their existence became known to us.”

The company KwikChex has as its head and directing mind Mr. Christopher Antony Emmins and he claims to be the CEO which again in real terms is short for the Chief Executive Officer of the company. In reality KwikChex Ltd only has two Directors, Him and Ms Gemma Chatwood, so in reality he is the chief of 1 Indian. This title that is employs enhanced credibility other than the mere title of Managing Director, or indeed Chairman of what is in reality a two Director Company.

Mr. Emmins owns 100 shares in the enterprise and Ms. Chatwood only owns 1. So at all times the control of the company is vested in Mr Emmins.

The self claimed Worldwide Company has filed accounts which show that the retained value of the company is £11,886.00 which is a very small amount to run a worldwide enterprise. Moreover the Company reports that it has assets of only £24,029 and only retains £9,322 in liquid cash. The Company also declares that is has liabilities of £12,087. Therefore to state that this enterprise is Worldwide is somewhat overstated as clearly it does not have the necessary capital to sustain the claim.

Mr Emmins is not a very successful company Directors and has a rather chequered history in the managing of his previous companies. Records at Companies House state every company he has had an involvement in has been dissolved. These companies are listed below:-

Two enterprises which failed areV4 Strategic Ltd which cost creditors at least £54,737
and another company which did not perform was, The Performance Bureau Ltd who cost creditors over £374,906.
Every company has been dissolved which Mr Emmins has had involvement in. These are recorded on financial reporting site therefore  it is not unreasonable to say Mr Emmins is a habitual director of dissolved companies.

The (RDO and Other) have launched a new initiative to tackle issues that potentially affect hundreds of thousands of timeshare owners and consumers; the initiative also signifies a new era reflecting the great strides forward that the industry has taken in quality and integrity.

And in addition to the major cases involving the police, the Task Force will also use private criminal prosecutions to ease the burden on the authorities and speed the process of apprehending the perpetrators.

Those responsible for the new initiatives include the Resort Development Organisation (RDO), who, together with their members have taken the lead and are financing it, MindtimeshareTATOC, the timeshare owners association, and the European Consumers Centre. Law enforcement agencies and politicians across Europe will also be a key part of the strategy. The Task Force is being managed by KwikChex, the renowned online investigation and verification business.

KwikChex do not boast they have any qualifications, they are registered investigators, they have a legal mandate, are qualified interviewers, members of any investigation organisation, have announced investigation protocols, or detailed past history successes.

Mr Emmins is not and was not a policeman and they alleged fraud work he purports to undertake is not regulated. There have been no private prosecutions and he is assisted by “Alberto Garcia” who also has a checked past in that he has ignored court orders and penal notices. This would be a perfect time to clinch KwikChex first success however we have no knowledge that Mr Emmins and/or Kwikchex have done anything

In a recent article in the Mail on Sunday (which the TCA reported on). It was claimed that KwikChex had recovered 80 Million on behalf of consumers. That figure was grossly inaccurate. That being a complete admission by the Sunday papers KwikChex still to this day promote the false headline on they own web site and bask in the headline glory which is reality is completely delusional as the unsubstantiated figure is only 80 thousand.

KwikChex have no begun to enter the world of exits, compensation claims and section 75 claims. They do so within the UK. The enterprise is not supported by a solicitor or a regulated body like the SRA. They are not registered Mackenzie friends or registered or unregistered paralegals, they boast no qualifications at all in the UK. They have no rights of audience in any contentious matter in the UK have no experience in legal protocols or in the civil procedure rules. What is grossly offensive is that KwikChex purport to represent consumer against the RDO who are they advertised paymasters This exerts an onerous responsibility and in any event a conflict of interest.

In respect to validation (as they call it) they have no legal mandate and charge for the service.

In a recent reported case in the USA, KwikChex’s client company claimed that it had been libelled. They sort advice from KwikChex who gathered the necessary evidence against TripAdvisor. The matter was the subject of a summary judgement application which was a petition made by TripAdvisor which in short stated that the action raised by KwikChex client was so dilapidated that there was no chance of success if the matter went to court. The judge felt the same and bounced out of court the action of KwikChex.

The judge noted in his ruling that Grand Resort’s answer to TripAdvisor’s motion to dismiss the suit “relies heavily” on a deposition by Christopher Emmins, Kwikchex CEO, who testified how his company prodded the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority to bar TripAdvisor from claiming its user reviews are from real travellers.

In summary this is the enterprise that is running the Timeshare Task Force!
