Time-Sensitive in Advance of Arizona House Bill 2639 Vote

We Need Your Voice

ARDA Opposes Arizona House Bill 2639, Which Offers Consumer Protection

On the heels of perceived unfair and deceptive timeshare sales practices that have left many families financially devastated, 13 Arizona representatives have proposed the creation of Arizona HB 2639 in an effort to safeguard consumers from entering into a perpetual contract, often buying a product they have not even had a chance to try before purchase.

Buyers often enter into timeshare contracts when on vacation, are encouraged to review documents after they return home from vacation, sometimes long after the rescission period has ended – leading to confusion, anxiety and costly fees that can last years.

Arizona House Bill 2639, aimed at alleviating some of those problems, was approved by a committee in a 7-0 vote, but is strongly opposed by the timeshare lobby group American Resort Development Association (ARDA), an industry-supported PAC.

Provisions in the proposed bill offer safeguards for timeshare buyers. We ask that consumers voice their support for this bill by emailing the representatives listed below.

The proposed bill includes:

  • Purchaser is granted a 14-day rescission period. The closing, as evidenced by delivery of the deed or other document, is prohibited before the 14 day calendar period expires.
  • After the end of the rescission period, the first use of the timeshare interest concludes; “first use of the timeshare interest” means the first time the purchaser or third party transferee stays in a timeshare pursuant to the purchase agreement.
  • The seller can charge up to a 10% cancellation fee. Seller may charge regularly scheduled maintenance fees for one year.
  • The purchaser may cancel the purchase agreement and relinquish all the timeshare interest within one year after the purchaser signs the agreement.
  •  At least ten years after a purchaser purchases a timeshare, a purchaser who has paid the entire purchase price and current annual fees may terminate the purchase agreement without cause.
  • A request can be denied only if it does not meet the criteria described.
  •  The bill also requires disclosure to alert the purchaser that the contract may be of a perpetual nature.

Please contact the following representatives in support of this bill. There have been numerous Attorneys General investigations, BBB complaints and lawsuits describing unfair and deceptive timeshare sales practices. The following individuals are the bill sponsors; we urge you to call and write to them to voice your support.

So there you have it, a bill to protect consumers being opposed by the industry because it does not fit in with their own agenda and curbes the power they have held over consumers for years.

It is now down to you the reader to exercise your right to lobby and have this bill past to protect all consumers. The industry has had its own way for far too long, they need to be brought down and be regulated by independent regulation.

On The Tuesday Slot we shall be publishing more about this bill, so join us then.

If you have any comments on this or any other article, or if you have any information regarding any company that you are suspicious of and believe it is a scam, then use our contact page and get in touch.

Have a great weekend and remember to do your homework on any company that contacts you.


Claims Advice Bureau UK: The Hijacked Name for Claims Assistance Bureau Ltd

Inside Timeshare has had more emails regarding Claims Assistance Bureau Ltd, the cold calling company contacting Eze Group clients with tales of money being awarded by the courts and court cases within the next few weeks. The original warning was published on 18 February.

Claims Assistance Bureau Limited

Ty Glen, 1 Brecon Court, William Brown Close,

Llantarnam Industrial Park, Cwmbran, NP44 3AB

Tel: 02920099129

06832938 companies house

Well it would seem that they have changed their name in the calls to Claims Advice Bureau UK, which from our research there is a genuine company called Claims Advice Bureau (UK) Ltd, with the Company Registration Number 05518043 and the registered address:

128-130 Whitworth Road, Rochdale, OL12 0JJ

The company was in registered 26 July 2005

Click link below for their website:

















According to the details provided on the website they are based in Manchester and are a PPI Agency operating throughout the UK.

They even show a Claims Regulation Management Number CRM 1970, claims management is regulated by the Ministry of Justice and their website confirms that this company is duly registered and authorised:

https://www.claimsregulation.gov.uk/search.aspx?search=simple&category=CRM&text=CRM1970&sectors=&statuses=&dates=&startdate=00010101&enddate=99991231

So they have now hijacked a genuine company so when you do your searches on the internet, you will find them and be taken in.

Inside Timeshare has spoken with the director of this company today so they are now aware of the situation, we shall be sending them all the details that we have. So hopefully these “fraudsters” will get caught.

As we know, these people with the name Harry Evans, Claire Bruce , Mel Rhys and have concocted some very believable stories that they are acting as intermediaries for the courts. Which we know would never happen.

The email adress they use is:

[email protected]

As you can see these are standard gmail accounts which do not link to any company website, which should always cause alarm bells to ring.

The latest story from Harry Evans, which is then backed up by Claire Bruce in an email, this time there is a case underway in the Madrid Courts against Eze Group, which we do know is not the truth. But according to Harry and then backed up by Claire in the email, they will have the clients money of over £15,000 back in TEN, YES, TEN days! Wow, that is very fast work, Inside Timeshare has never known any payout to be that quick, they are obviously great miracle workers!

So there we have it, not only are they committing fraud by taking money from Eze Group clients under false pretences, they are also committing a very serious crime of using a genuine companies name, along with the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce, The Bank of Spain and The High Court of Madrid to lend credence to this FRAUD.

If you have been contacted by Harry Evans, Claire Bruce, Mel Rhys under the name of Claims Assistance Bureau or using the name Claims Advice Bureau UK, then contact Inside Timeshare with all the details, we will ensure that it goes to the right authorities.

JUST REMEMBER DO NOT BELIEVE THEM AND DO NOT PAY ANY MONEY!
