European Consumer Centres Network (ECC)
The network of European Consumer Centres (ECC-Net) serves EU consumers shopping for goods and services on the European market, providing them with advice on their EU consumer rights and helping them with their disputes with traders in other EU countries.
The Timeshare Task Force is working with the ECC in intelligence gathering and sharing, legal opinion and in providing consumers with advice on specific threats.
When intelligence is gathered which indicates a strong likelihood of fraud or conspiracy to commit fraud, the Task Force will connect with the appropriate law enforcement agencies.
Law enforcement connections are being built and coordinated across Europe, with the Timeshare Task Force assisting with the identification of those involved in criminal activity. In many cases, such activities are carried out in several countries – and the Timeshare Task Force will assist in providing information which will help the coordination of information and actions across Europe.
