G&G Representations, an update on their dubious business!

We have received new information about this company called G&G Representations and we can assure you it does NOT look good!

We placed a warning on this blog not so long ago http://wp.me/p1kmoi-4W and thanks to this a lot of consumers have come forward to tell us about their experience with this company.

They also have a website now www.ggrcb.com and a “proper” email info@ggrcb.com

Their contact number is: (+44) 0845 869 9373 and another number which is mentioned on the web (+44) 0845 527 5017

When visiting the website more alarm bells start to ring as on the main page another dubious company is mentioned in one go with their name….The Ultimate Finding Company!

This company has been mentioned in more than one of our warnings on the blog as they are directly related to the so called “Nerja Connection” of the Group of companies with all kinds of dubious dealings related to resale and bogus holiday clubs! http://t.co/6kdz9Kd

There are some extremely worrying details though that has come up with the timeshare consumers who dealt with them. G&G Representations is requesting a fee in order to be able to release the “funds paid” by the supposed buyer of the timeshare. They explain this request as follows:

The payment referred to is an “IVA” payment. IVA is the Spanish equivalent to “VAT”

That you pay on all items purchased in the United Kingdom, the only difference is that in

Spain IVA is payable on everything even when you buy a car, before you can transfer

Ownership of said vehicle IVA has to be settled in full prior transfer.”

This is pure nonsense, and they go on about the fact that as not being a Spanish citizen the timeshare owner won’t be liable for the taxes imposed and G&G Representations will make sure the relevant document is filled ion so you can claim these taxes back after the sale has been finalized.

To complete this “formality” they ask for £900 to be sent in CASH to a supposed nominated Hacienda Official (Tax agent) by the ways of Money Gram!

The supposed tax agent is called Carol Anne Sedge

They even go as far as including a fake tax form in the paperwork!

So we have an English person (supposedly nationalized Spanish) working for the tax office and receiving money in cash. WELL…THIS IS A SCAM!

Please be extremely careful when dealing with this company. With the above information they have proved not to be trustworthy at all and are only after your money.

Don’t ever pay by Money gram or Western Union as these payments are NOT protected and it is difficult to track down the receiver on the other end.

Have you been called by G&G Representations? Have you paid IVA TAX by Moneygram?

Please let us know!

    Just an update on Consuldat Solution Services.I sent them an e-mail stating I was happy to sell them my DWVC membership but the deal would be for their courier to deliver an international money order,or similar,for £9000, or £8100 if they still insisted on this IVA payment, to my house whereupon I would hand over the documentation.I have just received a phone call from them saying they cannot work this way and I must send £900 first.I started to dispute this but was told I was being ‘childish’.I introduced her to a bit of Anglo-Saxon vocabulary and hung up.
    Any news on another company called UK Holiday Consultants and thier associates Abbey Crest Consultancy of St Helens (legal activities) and REW Property Ltd (finance activities) who I have fallen foul of.I have just reported their activities to Mastercard.

    This is the exact wording used in the offer from another company called Consuldat Solution Services with reference to the IVA payment and using MoneyGram.

    • Hi Robert,
      Indeed. Just a moment ago we have published now the update and the reference to the paperwork that these companies use.
      Good spotted!
      Thanks for your cooperation on the blog
      Regards
      Customer Care

    • We have this afternoon received a call from UK Holiday Consultants saying they have been passed our details and money! owed us from the Blue Chip Company, promising us additional compensation as well. BUT we needed to pay them £1,500 for the privledge (I mean pay a “refundable” insurance premium to cover the transfer of ownership documents) up front. We then received 3 more calls in the space of an hour chasing us for our decision and payment “so they could push ahead in paying your money back to you”. So glad we found this post here before we felt pressurised into going ahead and saying goodbye to another £1,500.
