It has come to the attention of Inside Timeshare through extremely reliable sources information that may have serious financial repercussions to Finnish timeshare consumers.
It involves an ex-Silverpoint sales agent by the name of Kimmo Honkaluoto, who is believed to reside in the South of Spain close to Gibralter. According to reports he is well known by Finnish clients for his “scams” and “fraudulent” sales tactics while an employee of Silverpoint.
The latest is contacting Finnish clients of several resorts using illegally obtained client data, which it is believed he himself has stolen from a whole host of resorts.
Among the resorts are the Flamingo Club and the Chayofa Country Club, both located in Tenerife, there are also clients of a resort located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Clients are called and meetings are arranged in Finland with a view to relinquish their timeshares or even claim compensation against their timeshare resorts.
From our secure source we have been informed that Criminal complaints (denuncias) have been instituted against Kimmo Honkaluoto, in Dubai UAE, Mainland Spain and in Tenerife. The allegations are of a very serious nature and depending on where he is apprehended the sentences could involve very long jail terms, especially in the UAE.
The use of this data is not just the fact it has been illegally obtained, but it is also in breach of the current Data Protection Laws currently inforce.
It would appear that Kimmo Honkaluoto has a very full history of “scamming” people, he also has several aliases 2 of which are Joo Kimmohan and Antti Ikonen, these scams have ranged from working for ISS Designs Marketing SL, Realistics Solutions, and “ripping” people off for accommodation which he does not have. This is one we found on Tripadvisor:
These are just a few of the posts we have found while searching for him on the internet, it is obvious he has been at this for a very long time with some posts going back to at least 2012.
