The Third Age Trust / U3A bans SellMyTimeshare.tv adverts
KwikChex in the capacity of its role leading the Timeshare Task Force, recently received a request for assistance from the Third Age Trust, a registered charity with over 360,000 members dedicated to promoting and assisting education for those no longer in full time employment through the U3A Movement.
One of their members had responded to an advert in the U3A magazine for SellMyTimeshare.tv. They had then been pressured into buying ‘Monster Travel Credits’. This is a bait & switch technique operated by Hollywood Marketing SLU, based in Tenerife and is the company behind Monster Travel and Sell My Timeshare. A recent report by the Direct Marketing Commission (DMC) highlighted the practices of Hollywood Marketing and recommended that their membership of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) be terminated – see report here
KwikChex is now assisting their member with a refund claim – and The Third Age Trust has confirmed that they will no longer accept advertising from SellMyTimeshare.tv.
