Yesterday Inside Timeshare published information on a relatively new website O-YOO and the company behind it Consumer Contract Resolutions (UK) Ltd. In this article, we named the “controlling minds” behind the company, Trevor McClintock and Paul McCarthy, today we publish some very interesting information on one of those named.
It turns out that Trever McClintock has what can only be described as a rather shady past, as reported in the Belfast Telegraph.
In 2015 McClintock appeared in court and pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud by false representation against two banks, Barclays and the Bank of Scotland. This involved using a solicitor named Michael Robin Burns who gave the banks false undertakings to the tune of hundreds of thousands of pounds in the form of bridging loans which Burns claimed the firm of solicitors he worked for had the available cash to “guarantee” those loans.
McClintock who had previously been disqualified as a company director had burns fulfil his role as director to a number of companies all controlled by McClintock under the name of The Wellington Group.
The judge in the case sentenced McClintock to a concurrent three-year sentence for each of the five charges which were suspended for three years. McClintock was also disqualified from holding the position of company director for a further three years.
This should leave you the reader in doubt at all that with this man being behind the O-YOO website and the company Consumer Contract Resolutions (UK) Ltd that any dealings with them are likely to be very costly indeed.
Once again this goes to show that you the owners of timeshare must be very careful of any calls or websites that you find regarding claims against your timeshare company.
REMEMBER DO YOUR HOMEWORK IT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE END!
