Neue betrügerische Wiederverkaufsfirmen am Start – ADMV – Agencia de Mediación Valencia & Asesoria y Consultoria Dura

achtungbetrug

Die Liste der neuen Wiederverkaufsfirmen für Timeshare und Urlaubsclub-Mitgliedschaften setzt sich fort mit ADMV, Agencia de Mediación Valencia, und Asesoria y Consultoria Dura S.L.L, zwei Firmen, die offensichtlich Hand in Hand arbeiten.

Die Firma ADMV aus Valencia kontaktiert zunächst die Konsumenten und bietet den Wiederverkauf des Timeshares an, verlangt aber dafür unrechtmäßigerweise eine Vertragskaution, laut Europäischer Richtinie für Timeshare und langfristige Urlaubsprodukte verboten!

Wenn der Konsument erst einmal überzeugt wurde und die geforderte (obgleich verbotene) Vertragskaution bezahlt hat, geschieht etwas, womit anscheinend keiner gerechnet hat: Die Angestellten der Firma ADMV behaupten, es sei eine stichprobenartige Kontrolle der Spanischen Steuerbehörde durchgeführt worden, und man habe festgestellt, der Konsument, also der Verkäufer, müsse Steuern in Höhe von 12% der Summe bezahlen, und außerdem fehle ihm die NIE-Nummer dazu.

Dabei kommt dann ein weiterer angeblicher Anwalt ins Spiel, von der Firma Asesoria y Consultoria Dura S.L.L, der dann auch sein Bestes gibt, um glaubhaft zu versichern, dass auf jeden Fall diese Steuer gezahlt werden müsse, um ernsthafte Probleme mit der Spanischen Steuerbehörde zu vermeiden.

Verwirrend? Schon. Vor allem, weil es weder diese Steuer beim Wiederverkauf von Ferienwohnrechten gibt, noch eine NIE-Nummer beim Verkauf eines Ferienwohnrechts / Timeshare erforderlich ist.

Bitte lesen Sie in Englisch weitere Informationen darüber wer, warum und wann man eine NIE-Nummer braucht: http://bit.ly/VCtYfc

Es handelt sich hier also offensichtlich um Betrug!  Bitte leisten Sie keinerlei Zahlungen, gleich welche Geschichte über Steuerprobleme man Ihnen auch erzählen möge! Es ist alles erfunden!

Die von ADMV, Agencia de Mediación Valencia, aufgestellte Webseite lautet www.admv.es, bietet allerdings nur Information in Spanisch an, und davon nur sehr wenig Konkretes.

Die Kontakt-Daten für ADMV sind Tel. +34 960 001 336 und Fax +34 960 001 326; E-Mail: ADMV@MAIL.COM

Sollten Sie mit ADMV, Agencia de Mediación Valencia, und / oder Asesoria y Consultoria Dura bereits in Verbindung stehen, stoppen Sie eventuell laufende Zahlungen und setzen Sie sich mit uns für weitere Information in Verbindung, entweder per E-Mail customercare@mindtimeshare.com oder hinterlassen Sie einen Kommentar auf diesem Blog.

New fraudulent resale companies on the start – ADMV – Agencia de Mediación Valencia & Asesoria y Consultoria Dura

warning4

The list of new resale companies for timeshare and holiday clubs continues to increase with ADMV, Agencia de Mediación Valencia, and Asesoria y Consultoria Dura S.L.L, two companies that seem to be working hand in hand.

The company ADMV from Valencia is the one that contacts the consumers first and offers them the resale of their timeshare, but they do request illegally a safety deposit, which according to the European Timeshare Directive is not allowed!

Once the consumer has been convinced and has paid the requested (illegal) security deposit, happens something which nobody seems to have expected: The employees of ADMV state that the Spanish Tax Office would have carried out one of their random controls and it has been detected that the consumer – the seller – has to pay taxes in the amount of 12% of the supposed sales price, and apart from that he was lacking a NIE number.

At this point another supposed lawyer appears on the scene, employee of the company Asesoria y Consultoria Dura S.L.L, who then does his utmost to make the consumer believe that he must pay this tax to avoid serious problems with the Spanish Tax Office.

Confusing? Well, yes it is. Especially because there exists no such tax that is to be applied when selling a timeshare, nor is it necessary to have a NIE number when selling a timeshare.

Please find further information about who, why and when it is necessary to have such a NIE number: http://bit.ly/VCtYfc

So, it can be said that we are facing here another case of an alleged fraud! Please do not make any payments, no matter which story about tax problems you are told! It is all invented!

The website for ADMV is www.admv.es, but they do only offer information in Spanish, and in reality not very much.

The contact details for ADMV are tel. +34 960 001 336 and fax +34 960 001 326; e-mail: ADMV@MAIL.COM

If you have already been in contact with ADMV, Agencia de Mediación Valencia, and / or Asesoria y Consultoria Dura, please stop any arrangements or running payments, and get in contact with us to receive further information. You can do this either by e-mail customercare@mindtimeshare.com  or by leaving a comment here on our blog.

Victoria Marketing, same name, same people, same place but slightly different offer.

Victoria

Yes of course we have heard of Victoria Marketing. As a matter of fact we have a blog about them posted in July 2013 (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-Yh )

In those days, Victoria Marketing was cold calling Timeshare consumers but mainly those who had been dealing with Incentive Leisure Group – ILG. They invited those consumers over to the Costa Del Sol claiming that there were assets from ILG that were going to be sold, and the money coming from these sales would be shared with all the “victims” of this company.

It became soon very clear that nothing of this story was true, and all those who attended the meeting thinking they were going to cash in money, were presented with an “offer” to pay thousands of pounds which would be “recuperated” afterwards.

Ever since then, it has been quiet around Victoria Marketing. But they are now back in the game and again actively cold calling Timeshare Consumers.

The pitch though has changed and become more recognizable. Join a No Win No Fee class action group against RCI and your Timeshare resort.

Sounds familiar? Well yes indeed. Victoria Marketing is cold calling to invite Timeshare owners to their meetings in Marbella on the Costa del Sol, which are actually done by ITRA the International Timeshare Refund Action.

In the same way as many others, such as Sherlock Marketing or information Advice Bureau, Victoria Marketing invites the consumer over in order to attend this meeting.

You can have a look at the numerous articles we posted on our blog about this company and also the “real” issue that is discussed at those meeting. The link to those posts is http://mindtimeshare.me/?s=ITRA

If you have been contacted by Victoria Marketing for a 3 day stay in Marbella on the Costa del Sol, then please let us know.

Signature Havens, discounted weekend stays that turn out to be a meeting of Sellmytimeshare!

signature

We have been speaking about Signature Haven previously on this blog. Signature Havens is a cold calling “Fly Buy” company who offers Timeshare owners the possibility of heavily reduced accommodation in resorts worldwide.

The reality turns out to be slightly different. Destinations available which are assured on the phone to the consumer when they are trying to sell the package, are no longer available once the package is paid and the consumer tries to book.

So instead of Madeira, Malta or other destinations, it all comes down again to Mainland Spain, Canary Islands or the UK.

A timeshare owner has informed us about their intention to travel to Madeira with Signature Haven, and this turned out not to be possible. But instead Signature Havens offered them a weekend stay in the UK, in Bournemouth to be exact.

Weekends stay for 2 nights at a hotel and the obligation to attend a “presentation”. How big was their surprise that when they received the final confirmation for this stay, this turned out to be from Sellmytimeshare and they were going to attend one of their meetings!

Monster2

Sellmytimeshare, one of the trademarks of Hollywood marketing together with Monster Travel, have their offices in Bournemouth indeed. And they actually invite consumers over for free to attend their meetings.

You can read more about these meetings on the following link: http://mindtimeshare.me/?s=monster+travel

So much for the discounted offer from Signature Havens!

We cannot stress enough to be very cautious when receiving cold calls and offers that seem too good to be true. Paying for discounted accommodation does not always result in saving money!

Sitting through a lengthily sales presentation when in reality you thought you were going to spend a relaxing weekend…is most probably not the break you were pictured when you were (cold) called in the first place with the offer.

If you have been offered a discounted holiday package from Signature Havens or any other company, then please ask for the Terms and Conditions prior to paying any money!

If you have been on the holiday already or attended a meeting from Sellmytimeshare, do let us know. You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog.

Have you been called by McBain Legal Services in Fuengirola?

warning4

A cold caller alert goes out for a company by the name of McBain Legal Services.

This company has started their cold calls last week and we have received several inquiries from concerned Timeshare consumers.

McBain Legal Services cold calls the consumer from 0034 603 162 771 and seems to have a lot of details from them on file, including the bank details which they used for paying previous dubious companies!

McBain Legal Services claims that various dubious companies have been raided by the police and their assets have been seized. The court now has appointed McBain legal Services to contact those victims of these companies and pay them back the money they lost.

Substantial amounts of money are mentioned, but in order to release this money the consumer needs to pay an administration fee of around €1000

We have checked the Spanish Companies House and could not find a company registered by the name of McBain legal Services.

The address quoted by the agent of McBain over the phone: Avenida Ramon No 2 Fuengirola Malaga 29640 seems to be incomplete or incorrect.

Seen the above information, we would recommend being cautious when this company contacts you.

If you have spoken already with an agent from McBain Legal Services on 603162771 in Fuengirola, then please do let us know.

Email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Timeshare-Eigentümer werden neustens von Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca kontaktiert

cala

In den letzten Wochen überschlagen sich „neue“ Wiederverkaufsfirmen geradezu, Ferienwohnrechts-Inhaber zu kontaktieren, und die letzte auf der Liste nennt sich Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca.

Es handelt sich ein weiteres Mal um den betrügerischen Versuch, mit einer rein hierfür erfundenen „Firma“ Timeshare-Besitzer zu täuschen. Zurzeit wissen wir nur von deutschen Konsumenten, die kontaktiert wurden.

Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca hat eine eigene Domain auf den Firmennamen registriert und eine Webseite hierfür geschaffen, http://www.inmobiliariacalablanca.com/, sicher um den Eindruck einer renommierten Firma zu schaffen.

Die Firma selbst sei in Denia, Alicante, ansässig, wird angegeben.

Die Kontakt-Details für Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca lauten: Tel. +34 611 345 476 und Fax +34 977 270 710; E-Mails: cala-blanca-immobilien@consultant.com ; info@inmobiliariacalablanca.com

Wie immer ist äußerte Vorsicht geraten, wenn Sie überraschend von einer Ihnen fremden Firma kontaktiert werden, die aber über Ihre persönlichen Daten verfügt.

Zahlen Sie keinesfalls irgendwelche Geldsummen, und informieren Sie sich zuerst über die Firma, die Sie unaufgefordert kontaktiert, und Ihnen irgendwelche Versprechungen macht, so gut es auch klingen mag.

Oftmals wird zu Beginn behauptet, es gäbe keine Vorauszahlungen, aber dann tauchen eigentlich IMMER irgendwelche „unerwarteten“ Kosten auf, ob nun als Sicherheitsleistung, Notar- od. Übersetzungskosten, oder aus anderen erfunden Gründen.

Wenn Sie kürzlich von dieser Firma kontaktiert wurden, lassen Sie es uns bitte wissen! Wir kommen dann gerne zu Ihnen zurück mit weiteren Informationen.

Sie können uns entweder per E-Mail customercare@mindtimeshare.com kontaktieren oder einen Kommentar auf diesem Blog hinterlassen.

Timeshare owners are being contacted by Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca

cala

During the past weeks a lot of „new“ timeshare resale companies have appeared on the scene, and the last one is called Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca.

Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca is another fraudulent attempt to cheat timeshare owners with a company that purely has been set up for this purpose. At this moment we only heard from German consumers who have been contacted.

Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca has registered their own domain and they also created a web site http://www.inmobiliariacalablanca.com/ , probably to give the image of a reputable company.

They state to be located in Denia, Alicante (Spain).

The contact details for Inmobiliaria Cala Blanca are tel. +34 611 345 476 and fax +34 977 270 710; e-mails: cala-blanca-immobilien@consultant.com ; info@inmobiliariacalablanca.com

As usual we recommend to be very cautious when you are contacted out of the blue by a company that you did not know before, but who dispose of your personal details.

Do not pay any money, and first search for information about the company that contacted you out of the blue and made you any promises, however good it may sound to you.

Many times they state in the beginning that there were no upfront charges, but in reality ALWAYS suddenly appear some “unexpected” costs, whether as security bond, or costs for notary or translation, or for any other invented reason.

If you have been contacted recently by this company, please let us know! We will shortly come back to you with more information.

You can either e-mail us to customercare@mindtimeshare.com or leave your comment here on the blog.
