1. What makes you think you have been conned?
2. Why did you not do anything about it whilst you were there?
I doubt they will push this to court - and there are ways of dealing with debt collection agencies. But I'd make sure you knew the answers to the above quesions before going further.

Monty. You are shown an apartment which bears no resemblance to the one you "Buy" once you read the paperwork which is sealed before you are told there is no cooling off period (breach of European law) you find you cano't avail of most of their promises. If you dont read the fine print whilst you are in Malta then you wont discover these things. Having been conned out of more than the cost of a decent holiday normal people dont feel like spending the rest of their holiday being messed around but prefer to think they are dealing with a reputable company who would sort things out decently over the phone. Unfortunately this is not that sort of company.

Obviously not that savvy. You won't get any money back. Put it down to experience and enjoy your next holiday.
Remember kids.... just say NO

he told them to cancell it 3 days after he had signed I.E. once home and reality sunk in and indeed he thought they had cancelled as he heard nothing for a year then he rercived a demand for two and a half grand followed seven days later by a debt collectors letter from a firm in liverpool followed seven days by a stronger worded letter from the same collection agency

Do not know anything about TinyTina09 or tony2phones solving their problems but try speaking with your local citizen advice or look at timeshare consumer assocation website at www.timeshare.org.uk. Good luck in sorting your friends mess.
