Hundreds of claims helping timeshare consumers – where is Kwikchex.com
Kwikchex.com promote themselves as the trusted independent advisory service along with TimeshareBusinessCheck.org and TimeshareTaskforce.org and have even gone to the lengths of obtaining recognition with Trading Standards and stating you can “buy with confidence. “ Kwikchex.com has given it’s seal of approval to many resorts without mentioning the thousands of claims against them. however, behind this façade a different story is revealed.
The Truth Revealed
Did you know that Kwikchex.com is funded by the Resort Development Organisation (RDO) and in layman’s terms this means the timeshare resorts themselves are paying Kwikchex.com to represent them as bono fide and reputable timeshare companies. You can see the full list of RDO members here https://rdo.org/members-directory/. This is why you will NEVER see negative stories about any timeshare resort published by Kwikchex.com.
Their aim is to use this vehicle i.e. Kwikchex.com to discredit ANY company that claims against a timeshare resort protecting their financial interests.
This can be evidenced by some simple investigation online. On this link you will find a playlist on YouTube of Silverpoint resorts VERIFIED by kwikchex.com: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3T8_Ub-CsPv_Jd-ad_cQI6jkVQjqCdpk any member of the public viewing the above would be given the impression that they can buy with confidence at any of these resorts yet Spanish Law firm M1 legal & CLA alone provided us some historical figures relating to Claims against SILVERPOINT: at this point in time there are:

I think you will agree that this documented information is showing a huge volume of cases against the timeshare industry yet Kwikchex.com have not published anything about these legal actions and judgements. If Mr. Emmins is the consumer champion, why has he remained silent and not published a single statement regarding all these cases?
