|Associated Company Name:||Club Riviera|
|Details of criminal activity:||During the late Eighties and early Nineties, Club Riviera's aggressive sales methods made it Britain's biggest timeshare company. The company became notorious for its use of the 'buy-sell scam'. Timeshare owners were told that if they bought a new apartment from Club Riviera, their existing unit would be sold for them at a profit. But those who signed up found the second part of the deal was never followed through. They were left paying for two apartments. |
Club Riviera was denounced in Parliament for intimidating customers, repossessing properties without due warning, and offering phoney buy-back guarantees.
In 1992, after a stream of complaints over false claims made by salesmen, the company was banned by the Office of Fair Trading from offering credit facilities to timeshare buyers.
