Can we get a representavive in Hurghada who is willing to hand out/post flyers to other developments/pubs bars/cafes etc.... informing them of the HRA.
I am sure a majority of them will have heard about the problems we are experiencing.

Are there any other forums on the net that you could post links or info on? (Don't bother with wwp, they are pro el-riad and will just ban your account).

I know, been banned 3 times already...
Put info about HRA on the Topix "Egypt" forum and I am looking at other forums to put our info on.
There doesn't seem to be very many but will plod on regardless.

Ha Ha ;) no harm in trying.

I have also tried to post on various forums in the past but they just delete the post.

You would expect them to let the facts become public knowledge (especially as it would help members that are ultimately supporting their sites?)

I've contacted the AIPP to send an email to all members asking for agents that sold the apartments to contact me. I have had one so far who i have directed to this site so he can bring himself up to speed and hopefully direct his clients our way. I have also had one more person contact me today so will send out details on Monday also had a few from the mass email join so we are getting bigger. They have sent off the £100 and £300 so don't panic about them not paying the full amount :)

How about taking an advert out in property magazines?
Place in The Sun etc....or contacting them and asking them if they're interested in printing a story?

Just a thought....

Google adwords will put you high up in search rankings within Google for phrases like “coral sea pearl” Desert sea pearl” “sean woodhall” “El Riad” etc. It will also give you a sponsored link to the right side of Google and on the first page if you set the CTR (click through rate) correctly.

We use Google adwrods for our own commercial web site and it’s very good. I did have a £50 voucher that was for a newly created account that I couldn’t use because ours was already set-up. I’m happy to let HRA have the redemption code so you can use as well as provide any technical assistance you need for free (I’ve been an IT consultant since 1991).

Listings on Gumtree are by location and so if each of us goes on to Gumtree and posts for our own area, that would be good. Its easy and quick to do. I have lised under community in Bath and Bournemouth. Gumtree then sends it automatically to all subscribers in that catagory. Its free and def worth a try

Hello Fellow owners of Desert Pearl 1,

We missed a lot of episodes of this drama because we were trying to work with Redsea Lawyers who have offered us several different units in exchange for our unit E202.

Does anyone have a complete list of DP 1 owners that we could form a common stradegy?

Why are we not suing World Wide Destinations and their heirs? Going to Egypt with British lawyers sounds a bit quixotic.

(For those that are unaware of the definition of quixotic: 1.Caught up in the romance of noble deeds and the pursuit of unreachable goals; idealistic without regard to practicality..........hurghad1....)

We live in California & Ireland, and are mad as hell. Is there anyone out there who would really like to straighten this out? Please email us direct:
eartholder1@sbcglobal.net

Regards, Tom Dietrich

Hello Tom,

Welcome to the forum,

Can you clarify what units you been offered, on what developments. and also was it arranged through you lawyer or the developer.

I suggest you read the whole forum and all the posts, especially the one titled How to join the HRA and make your payments to DWS You will see that we have already established ourselves as a group and are currently taking legal action against the people responsible, I hope you will join us.

Thank you

Hi Tom, we are all mad as hell, which is why the Hurghada Residents Association was formed so that we can all communicate through the forum and work en-masse to reclaim our apartments. Denton Wilde Sapte solicitors are not only British based - they are a multinational law firm who has offices in Cairo, so they are best placed to help us regarding Egyptian law, but like all lawyers, they will not work for nothing. Everyone who wants to instruct them to fight our case has to pay their £300 soon or they will be left out and will have to fend for themselves.

There is lots of action going on in the background if you are a fully paid up member of the HRA and member of the legal fund action group you will be privy to the information from DWS. If you are not a member then unfortunately you will be on your own, watching in aticipation is all you can do..
Everyone who is in the group is very interested in getting their apartments which is why we joined in the first place. DWS are only securing apartments for the people who paid for their services.

how about advertising buisinesses on your site?

thanx andy



Hi Andy thanks for the offer but at the moment we don't have any advertising or links on the site so far, as we have been concentrating on getting all the issues sorted out for everyone first.

However now that DP1 is nearly sorted we will soon be looking at offering opportunities for lettings, management, key holding, airport pick up drop off's, local attractions and businesses, diving, restaurants, bars etc and any anything else that is wanted.

New topics will be started as soon as there is need for it, and it will go from there.

But please feel free to email us at hurghad1@googlemail.com with your thoughts for a link to your site.

Hurghad1

Thank you neil
Good question about prices, All depends on what you need and how long it takes to do.
You will get English standards and time keeping so 21 is 21 and 830pm is 830pm.
I will match any prices you are quoted and better the service, How does this sound.
Best regards andy

Ok Neil sounds good to me, have you looked into 3D room viewing shots? I love these shots and also with my full frame camera using a 12mm lens, the size of the room looks more realistic with 120 degree view . I have started bringing more of my gear over from england as this was my main place of work. So i have a mobile studio now here with all the lenses flashes i need for most shots.

please feel free to contect me at..... andy@hurghadaphotography.co.uk

best regards andy

ps sorry were not using this site just to punt for work everyone reading this.

Hi everone, I have just had a new idea for more members to join.
What about a freebay page for people looking to buy and sell but you have to be a member to use it etc.
I am looking for a cheap car and looks like i have to buy new but no way over here, omg new car in dahar two mins later big dent cool.
I think £1500 should get a good car here some how, like in the uk you can get so much car for £1500 like a 2002 bmw 535i even.
I also have a nice leather chair for sale. :roll:
This will get loads of members and if we put headings pages like "cars for sale hurghada" the search engines will soon pick it up and direct everyone to the site.
Good idea eh?
andy

Very good idea Andy...but as Hurghad1 said new topics etc... can be added at a later date once we sort out the more immediate issues...we intend to keep the forum running for all members to use after we have secured our apartments.

You can email any other ideas you have to....... hurghad1@googlemail.com

I've just had some photographs taken by Andy of the furnished apartments we have done in Sunset Pearl, all I can say is fantastic work. If anyone is looking for photography work in Hurghada or the UK (he does both) I can highly recommend him.

How about this for an idea, everyone affected by the corruption in Egypt to join forces and have one big demonstration, might be a good time with the new president now in place
