Blue Invest and Palmeraie, two resale companies operating from Marrakech

This consumer alert goes out for the resale companies Blue Invest and Palmeraie, based in Marrakech and using a very similar pitch when contacting clients on a cold call.

Blue Invest is cold calling mainly French and Belgium timeshare consumers and offer them a resale of their timeshare. In order to sell the timeshare the owner has to travel to Marrakech and attend a meeting with the supposed buyer of the timeshare.

They do explain to the consumer that there is already an agreed sales price and this price is surprisingly high which obviously is meant to convince the consumer of the good deal they are offered.

Blue Invest address is BP 22335, Marrakech, Medina, 40000 Marrakech, Maroc and telephone number 00212 529 800 987 and email address blueinvest2000@gmail.com
The do not have a website.

In order to travel to Marrakech, a holding deposit or confirmation fee for the appointment is requested of 395€ payable by bank transfer to a bank in Marrakech.

Palmeraie is using this very same pitch and also cold calls mainly French consumers, offering them suspiciously high prices for their timeshare and again the only way to arrange the sale is by travelling to Marrakech and again the upfront payment is required of 395€ payable by bank transfer.

Palmeraie has address 7 Rue des Banques, Kenneria, 40000, Marrakech, Maroc, and telephone number +212 546 154 458, Fax +212 529 800 987 and email palmeraie2000@gmail.com

Please note that companies who cold call you, obviously obtained your contact details and membership details through an unlawful source and offering a guaranteed resale requesting to travel to another country and paying an upfront fee…are NOT to be trusted!

Have you been contacted by Blue Invest from 00212529800987 or Palmeraie on number 00212546154458 ? Please let us know.

    le 18 février 2012, je suis contacté par BLUE INVEST. Ayant déjà été escroqué il y a un certain temps, je ne donne évidemment pas suite à cette bande d’escrocs du Maroc.

    Yes, I have been contacted by “Palmeraie” in November 2011. I am in fact owner of a points certificate with Club La Costa and I was trying to sell it through “Visions of the World”. As the latter was however not capable to sell my certificate, because it is “a bad product”, as they said, when “Palmeraie” called me offering a price of 18,000.00 EUR, I was really surprised. I do not know how this is possible but “Palmeraie” was having all my personal details. They were knowing that I was trying to sell and they were having my private phone number in Belgium !!! Given the good price offered, my wife and I decided to go for it and we did book our flight tickets for Marrakech in December. It is only when we did not receive consistent replies to several specific questions that we suddendly started to think it was a bogus company. When then got in touch with Club La Costa and were told that several of their French speaking members had already been contacted by them and that it certainly was a bogus company. We then got in touch with “Palmeraie” explaining to them that we were cancelling our meeting with them and cancelled our flights and it is with big difficulties that we got our money reimbursed ! Thank God, we had not paid the 395,00 EUR, because they would have been lost for ever I think.
    FYI, please be advised as well that “Palmeraie” did give us several phone calls after that, asking us why we had cancelled our visit to them. They have even called us back 2 weeks ago asking us if we had not changed our mind !!!
    I hope my comments will be of help to you and please excuse my poor English.
