Chris Emmins presents at EUROC seminar

Chris Emmins, director and co-founder of KwikChex  led a session on consumer protection and law enforcement at the first EUROC seminar held in Sutton Coldfield in September.

The session – conducted as a part of the KwikChex-managed Timeshare Task Force initiatives included information on the rights of timeshare owners, including fair contracts and the battle against rogue claims businesses.

It featured a number of case studies which demonstrated how timeshare owners had been targeted by fraudsters and convinced to pay thousands for bogus claims and relinquishment services – and detailed some of the actions taken to bring the rogues to justice and help recover monies for consumers. Advice is being made available by KwikChex to EUROC members on how to better protect owners against such scams – and to ensure that if they do have concerns over their ownership, they can go through a process of checking and due diligence which will properly evaluate their situation.

Attendees were also reassured of the integrity of the services provided free of charge by KwikChex – including Trading Standards Approved accreditation and the recent Hero Award given to KwikChex by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute.

They gave me continuous, good advice

I contacted this company regarding our dealings with a Timeshare company who we were unable to contact. They gave me continuous, good advice, over a period of several weeks. They always replied promptly, using plain English. I am now hoping to get back some of the monies using section 75. Great job!

I can’t thank Chris and his team enough for their advice and guidance

I can’t thank Chris and his team enough for their advice and guidance in successfully obtaining a refund from the credit card company for money paid to [a timeshare related business/name removed by BWC admin’] for a service that did not materialise. Also for putting me in touch with Trading Standards who had an ongoing investigation into the company.

A salutary lesson not to be persuaded into accepting a “free” holiday without knowing the name of the company proposing to make the sales presentation.
