Companies wound up as part of investigations into Fraud

Between 2007 and 2010 the Spanish police and other enforcement agencies such as Trading Standards in the UK stepped up their efforts to tackle companies that were defrauding timeshare owners and the general public at large. This has resulted in the closure of almost 70 companies, some of which were wound up by the authorities and others ceased trading of their own accord, frequently due to pressure as a result of investigations that were being carried out.

 

The majority of the companies were based in Spain and the Canary Islands although a small number operated in the UK, where an increasing number of sales offices are opening.

 

As part of its own enforcement programme, RDO appointed an ex-police inspector from Spain and he has worked closely with the authorities over the past 3 years, providing them with crucial information to help their investigations, with the ultimate aim of having fraudulent companies closed down.

 

Members of the public who believe they may have been defrauded should contact RDO on info@ rdo.org.
