Thank you thank you! Ok will ignore for now. I actually took note of their nbr and avoided answering but sometimes they use different nbr.. I can't change my nbr due to work reasons. . It's a shame to have to do that cos of these scumbags... They even called my home nbr and my elderly parents and young young kids without knowing gave them my nbr even... Really wonder how those ppl helping them can do these to us..

Hi all, I know there are alot of victims of the above stated timeshare scam. As much as alot of us wanted to find out more information of what is going on, time and information is always against us.

I have managed to know some of the victims from the similar timeshare tragic experience and contacted them from the forums of hardwarezone. We managed to form a small group of 3 currently, and are planning to seek and consult legal advises together.

We seek to find and gather victims in similar situation and wants to know of the available option, and to avoid the miscommunication of information and confusion. The lawyer we engage are currently still in legal debate with the timeshare companies' lawyer. And we are interested to seek and unite as many similar victims in this situation. We do not know the outcome or what will happen, but our group will walk together with the advise of a legit lawyer to advise us.

If anyone want to join us, pls drop me a pm.

Just want to update everyone that I've gotten my refund back. For those who have withdrawn your agreement with Khoo & Krishnan Associates Pte Ltd within the cooling period, do "follow up" with them and press them to give you the date of refund as they wont be bothered to follow up with you. Hope that helps ease the anxiety of those who are still waiting for their refund. To all victims of timeshare scam, just ignore them at all cost (pun intended)!!!

Hi

Have you meet up with Goodwill Ettikan PTE Ltd ready.
I have meet up with them before.

To make the story short:

About 3+ years ago I was brought a merry-go-round scam where I paid Chevalier Don to claims a refund and cancel my timeshare.

Then, GCR took over my account where I have to pay additional amount.

Next, Goldmon took over my account because GCR's bosses ran away and I paid another amount to claim my funds.

Finally, they are all gone. Company closed down without a trace.

2 months ago, a company by the name of Goodwill Ettikan (Far East Shopping Centre, #12-02) called me and I went to visit them about my funds. The person, Zackaria said that he can get my funds back and I don't have to pay a single cent. They just take 40% of my claimed funds. In short, Goodwill Ettikan will help me claim the funds. I didn't take a offer.

Just last Friday, a lady called me saying that she is from don't-know-what trustee funds. She claimed that I had used Cheveliar Don, GCR, Goldmon Austrasia to claims the funds. She said that this is not allowed and we are not supposed to use companies to claims as we can claim it by ourself.

The don't-know-what UK office is going to sue me for claiming against them. I said I don't want any of these nonsense so she said can, I just need to go to one of their valuation centres to sign a form to discharge my stake on the claimed fund.

So she gave me the address. Guess what is the address?

Goodwill Ettikan
Far East Shopping Centre, #15-13

So... the same company that said can help me claim the fund is the same company that I am suppose to go to sign away my stake on the claim? But 2 months ago Goodwill Ettikan claimed that they can help me???

I find it strange. Both companies are the same and they are located in 2 different levels. Has anyone gotten this call? If so, please share with us.

I just wanted to be safe, I have a meeting with them this Monday 15-Apr but I want to delay it to see if I can meet up with a lawyer friend of mine to discuss this issue and see what are my legal stand. I want to be sure that I am not sued for whatever reasons!

How about you? Have you met up with them?

Any one received phone calls from companies claiming they can help to 'get a refund for your time share'? I've been getting many calls lately and I don't know what they are after but would like to know more so that I can advise my parents and friends if they receive the same calls.

Khoo and Krishnan --ha ha

I too received a call from Khoo & Krishnan Associates Pte Ltd, and they offered to help me get out of a timeshare contract, with lucrative returns paying only a little more than 10k. They even showed me past contract of people who terminated their timeshare and helped with the legal proceedings and lawyer letters from timeshare companies back in July 2012. They kept emphasizing that I need to pay for the maintenance fee which was left unpaid for the number of years i held the contract. They even advised that I should terminate my payment to the timeshare company immediately. I got suspicious as they pressed for money on the very same day.

After a little investigation, I found that this company had only start in December 2012. They claimed this company was started by retired lawyers, but I found out otherwise. I also read through my timeshare contract and found what they said about the maintenance fee to be untrue.

I want to alert everyone to be aware of them and not to be scammed by them.
I received a call from a woman from Khoo and Krishnan recently. She claimed that the company knew I had stopped paying maintenance dues for a TS. She claimed that the company is authorised to help me end my TS membership and get a refund of the purchase price for me. She said the company is located at Kramat Lane. I asked more questions; she became very evasive. I said this sounded like a scam and the woman who sounded so sweet at the beginning called me an ass.... for the comment I made. Ha ha I wonder who the real ass.... is; I did not part with my money nor wasted more time.

Hi I am new to this forum. I had just posted a comment on khoo and krishnan in this forum. I wonder what the authorities can or will ever do to the perpetrators of such scams. If the authorities want to, they can easily gather enough evidence (going by the number of postings on this subject) to put these scammers behind timeshare cells. Sick of them.

So they started with the women and men strategy. The problem here is there would still be alot people who are unaware and would be paying the money that they wanted. Alot of people had entered timeshare when they were hot, many of them don't realize timeshares are memberships fees like country club fee, u have to book for the facilities.

So if you have fully paid, please get yourself familiarize with their services and utilize them or treat it as a bad purchase. If you have not fully paid, talk to CASE and get intervention to terminate the membership. If you have sufficient evidence that they are not performing as per the contract, like 300 resorts facilities, now this could possibly be considered as a breach of contract on their side.

Yup, consider it a loss and move on. BTW the TS that she mentioned, I never bought into it. So all those who read this, remember: don't waste your time talking to Khoo and Krishnan and others like them.
