Yesterday 25 September 2019, The Gazette which is the Official Public Record published the Winding Up order of Keys Concierge. We published in July the fact that Keys Concierge had filed a petition for winding up, with Alex Lawson of Alvarez and Marsal replacing Franz Markus Deutsch as Director on 14 May 2019.
Keys Concierge is just another in the group of companies which come under the Limora Group which Lawson is placing into liquidation. This is obviously bad news for the hundreds of consumers who have paid hundreds of thousands for membership to this dubious club. It is now obvious in the light of recent events and now the actual winding up order that the whole operation was a money-making machine.
Alex Lawson is liquidating many companies within the Limora Group including Limora Investments Ltd (BVI) the parent company which was owned by the late Bob Trotta and now owned by his family. For the whole story and reasons behind these liquidations read the articles on the link below especially the 6 part article which highlights the Ultimate Beneficial Owner/s.
There may be a glimmer of hope for some consumers who paid by credit card, now that the Keys Concierge has been officially wound up, they may have recourse to claim via their credit card provider under Section 75 of the Credit Consumer Act 1974.
Section 75 covers, not receiving the goods or services paid for, faulty goods or goods not fit for purpose and the most important the company is no longer in operation due to liquidation. The last is the most important as now those consumers will never receive the service promised and paid for. For more detailed information on Section 75 please follow the link to the Martin Lewis website. This gives very good advice and template letters to pursue a claim yourself.
Inside Timeshare now warns the many “members” of Keys Concierge that they will no doubt be receiving many “cold calls” from dubious companies now seeing an opportunity to make money out of those already in distress. They will probably use the “carrot” of no win no fee but with a very hefty fee on completion.
If you receive any calls to this effect please use our contact page and give us all the details that you have, Inside Timeshare will publish this information to warn other readers.
Inside Timeshare will also help with advice and writing of letters FREE OF ANY CHARGE, Section 75 can be done yourself but we appreciate that not everyone has the ability to do this and may need help.
DO NOT PAY ANY COMPANY TO DO THIS FOR YOU.
