Did you receive a cold call from Inmobiliaria Carbonell for a Timeshare resale?

Captura de pantalla 2016-01-08 a la(s) 12.05.39

A new cold calling Resale Company has been spotted by the name of Inmobiliaria Carbonell.

Inmobiliaria Carbonell contact timeshare owners, mainly French speaking owners, by cold call and tell them a story about a corporate buyer which they have already waiting, keen on purchasing their weeks, and the price offered is well over the current market price.

As to reports received from consumers, the buyer that supposedly is interested to purchase their weeks is a big international company, Union Fenosa España and Inmobiliaria Carbonell provide the consumer even with a contract that seems to evidence this.

As usual with this kind of business, Inmobiliaria Carbonell asks the consumer to pay an upfront fee, and once more we ask ourselves how it is possible that these people do not know about the European Timeshare Directive, which states clearly that requests for upfront fees are not allowed when offering resale of timeshare weeks.

We would say this looks the same as all the other resale companies that pop up and disappear continuously, and we would certainly not recommend paying any money to such a company.


Their address stated on their documents is in Alicante.

Telephone number (+) 00 34 91 18 689 35 and Fax (+) 00 34 91 27 259 87

If Inmobiliaria Carbonell contacted you with this or a similar offer, please let us know.

You can either e-mail us to customercare@mindtimeshare.com or leave your comment here on our blog. In both cases we will shortly come back to you with more information.

Avez-vous reçu un appel de ‘Immobilière Carbonell’ faisant une offre pour vendre votre multipropriété à Union Fenosa?


Une nouvelle société de revente a été reportée sous le nom d’Inmobiliaria Carbonell / Carbonell Inmobiliaria.

Inmobiliaria Carbonell contacte les Membres de multipropriété par téléphone et leur raconte qu’une société est intéressée par l’acquisition de leurs semaines et le prix offert est bien au-dessus du prix du marché actuel.

Selon les témoignages reçus de certains Membres, l’acheteur qui soi-disant serait intéressé par le rachat de leurs semaines, est une entreprise importante internationale, Union Fenosa España, et Carbonell Inmobiliaria fournit même aux Membres un contrat qui semble confirmer cela.

Comme à l’accoutumé avec ce genre d’affaires, Carbonell Inmobiliaria demande au Membre to payer des frais à l’avance, et encore une fois, nous nous posons la question de savoir comment est-il possible que ces personnes ne soient pas au courant de la Directive Européenne en matière de multipropriété qui confirme clairement que les demandes de frais à l’avance ne sont pas permises lorsqu’il s’agit de revente de semaines en temps partagé.

Cela ressemble aux agissements de toutes les autres compagnies de revente qui se créent et disparaissent continuellement, et nous déconseillons vivement de payer de l’argent à ce genre de société.


Leur adresse postale indiquée sur leurs documents est en Alicante, Espagne.

Leur numéro de téléphone (+) 00 34 91 18 689 35 et Fax (+) 00 34 91 27 259 87

Si vous avez été contactés par Carbonell Inmobiliaria avec cette offre ou une offre similaire, merci de nous le faire savoir.

Vous pouvez nous envoyer un email à customercare@mindtimeshare.com ou laisser vos commentaires ici sur notre blog. Dans les deux cas, nous vous répondrons avec davantage d’informations.

Bandenia, another FAKE bank calling consumers for money pay out’s.

Captura de pantalla 2016-05-12 a la(s) 16.59.33

Not sure how these cold callers come up with the names of their companies, but this time we have a bank by the name of Bandenia or BBP Bandenia.

The fact is that Bandenia claims to be a bank in Spain with branches in London as well, and they are holding money in accounts to be paid out to victims of timeshare related scams.

After the initial cold call, the agent from Bandenia sends out a confirmation email from bandeniabanca@europe.com with a document called PROOF OF FUND and another document supposedly from the Spanish tax offices.

The PROOF OF FUND document is the one with the good news, as the consumer is certified and guaranteed that a large sum of money is waiting to be paid out.

The money seems to have been waiting there for years! And the consumer all this time without knowing they were rich!

All the consumer needs to do is pay the taxes (5%) over the awarded amount. Of course with the expectation of receiving close to 50.000 euros just out of the blue, who would not then pay the 2.500 euros in taxes?

Does this sound a bit dodgy? You can bet it is!

Contact details for the fake bank branch BBP Bandenia are:

Address C/Chile nº 4, Edificio 1, 28290 Las Rozas, Madrid, Spain.

They use a mobile number for phone calls 0034 603 274 401 and a UK number for the fax 0871 2339 098

Please note that there is no such thing as a bank called Bandenia in Spain and neither do Banks have money in accounts under your name for years without you knowing, without you opening this account and without you identifying yourself properly through official channels.

If BBP Bandenia has approached you from +34 603274401 or any other individual claiming to be calling from a bank in Spain, then please let us know.

For as much as these callers might sound credible, always do your research and please contact us with the information before you send of any personal details to these dubious callers or even worse before you pay them!

Bent u al gebeld door Juanelo Atocha, de advocaten uit Madrid?

Captura de pantalla 2016-05-11 a la(s) 14.10.30

De onverwachte telefoontjes van het kantoor van Juanelo Atocha schijnen dagelijks binnen te komen bij de Nederlands sprekende timesharing consumenten.

Deze consumenten hebben allemaal iets in het gemeen, ze zijn in het verleden opgelicht door een of ander vals doorverkoop bedrijf.

Maar het goede nieuws van Juanelo Atocha is dat deze bedrijven nu zijn opgerold door de politie, en er is zelfs beslag gelegd op een grote geldsom.

De politie en rechters hebben de zaak behandeld en de veroordeling is dat de slachtoffers worden uitbetaald.

En dit is allemaal gebeurd terwijl de slachtoffers nergens vanaf wisten en ook niet op de hoogte waren gesteld dat hun naam was gevonden in de papieren van deze oplichters.

Ongelooflijk? Zeer zeker!

Juanelo Atocha spreekt uitstekend Nederlands, en zegt dat hij in Madrid zijn kantoor heeft.

In de Calle Canizares s/n, 28012 Madrid zoals op de website staat vermeld.

Contact gegevens Telefoon: 0034 603 135 412

Web: www.juaneloatocha.com en Email: info@juaneloatocha.com of juaneloatocha@gmail.com

Zodra Juanelo de aandacht heeft van een timeshare consument, wordt de zaak over gegeven aan de notaris die het geld gaat uitbetalen.

Deze notaris is Maria Teresa Jimenez Romero. Ene heer Jens Flores, ook weer vloeiend Nederlands, bespreekt de zaak met de consument en het wordt duidelijk dat voor er enig geld wordt uitbetaald, de consument een bedrag moet storten voor belastingen en andere legale onkosten die zijn gemaakt in deze zaak.

Jens Flores schrijft e-mails van het adres info@mariateresajimenezromero.com maar er is geen website aangemaakt voor dit domein.

Onderzoek heeft uitgewezen dat er zeer zeker geen advocaten of notarissen zijn in Spanje met de naam Juanelo Atocha of Maria Teresa Jimenez. Ook zijn er geen rechtszaken geweest waar er geld wordt uitbetaald aan slachtoffers, en zeer zeker nooit als deze slachtoffers niet eerder op de hoogte waren gesteld en zich op correcte wijze hebben geïdentificeerd bij de rechtbank.

Bovenstaande bedrijven bestaan niet en is allemaal deel van een zeer onbetrouwbare opzet.

Wij raden daarom ook sterk af om ook maar enige informatie te verstrekken aan deze bedrijven, stuur geen persoonlijke gegevens of documenten, en BETAAL NIET als zij om geld vragen.

Mocht u al zijn benaderd door Juanelo Atocha op het mobile nummer 0034 603135412 of door Jens Flores, dan willen wij dat graag van u weten.

U kunt ons e-mailen op customercare@mindtimeshare.com of plaats een commentaar op dit blog.

Have you been called already by Juanelo Atocha from Madrid?

Captura de pantalla 2016-05-11 a la(s) 14.10.30

Cold calls from the office of lawyer Juanelo Atocha are being received by timeshare owners on a daily basis. They seem to be targeting the Dutch-speaking owners, but of course they might “expand” their clientele.

The timeshare consumers who receive such call all have something in common, which is the fact some bogus resale company cheated them in the past.

But the call from Juanelo Atocha is about the good news in this matter, because the police have now raided these companies and money has been seized.

Police and judges have been working on the case and it has been ruled that the money should be paid out to all the victims.

And all this has happened without the victim knowing anything about it. Unbelievable? It certainly is!

Juanelo Atocha speaks perfectly Dutch, and he claims to be working from his office in Madrid based in the Calle Canizares s/n, 28012 Madrid as mentioned on his website.

Contact telephone: 0034 603 135 412

Web: www.juaneloatocha.com and Email: info@juaneloatocha.com or juaneloatocha@gmail.com

Has soon as Juanelo has caught the attention of the timeshare consumer, the case is passed to the notary office in order to pay out the awarded money.

This notary is called Maria Teresa Jimenez Romero and a man by the name of Jens Flores, fluently Dutch, discusses the details with the consumers. It soon becomes clear that before there is any pay out the consumer will have to pay for certain taxes and legal fees.

Jens Flores sends emails from info@mariateresajimenezromero.com but the domain has no website.

Research has shown that there are no such lawyers or notary offices in Spain by the name of Juanelo Atocha or Maria Teresa Jimenez.

Neither have there been any court cases where people have been awarded money, without any prior notification that they were included in the case and a correct identification of the victim at the courthouse.

Above-mentioned companies do NOT exist, and are all part of a very dubious set up.

We strongly recommend that if you are called, you don’t provide them with any further personal details or documents and certainly DO NOT PAY THEM!

If you have been contacted already by Juanelo Atocha from Spanish mobile number 0034 603135412 or by Jens Flores, we would like to hear from you.

You can email us at customercare@mindtimeshare.com or place a comment on this blog.

Avez-vous reçu des appels par la société New Line Vacation basée à Marrakech?

Captura de pantalla 2016-05-11 a la(s) 10.47.59

Cette alerte aux consommateurs sort pour les entreprises de revente New Line Vacation, basée à Marrakech et avec un pitch (argument commercial) très semblable lorsque elles contactent les clients avec des appels à froid.

New Line Vacation contacte principalement les consommateurs de France et Belgique et leur offre de racheter leurs multipropriétés. Afin de vendre la multipropriété le propriétaire doit se rendre à Marrakech et assister à une réunion avec un prétendu acheteur.

Ils expliquent aux consommateurs qu’il existe déjà un prix de vente convenu et que le prix est étonnamment élevé dans le seul but de convaincre le consommateur de la bonne affaire qui est offert.

Leur Adresse BP 10114 Avenue Mohamed V Gueliz 40 000 Marrakech (Maroc) et numéro de téléphone 00212 621 673 059; adresse email : contact@newlinevacation.com

Site web http://newlinevacation.com

L’agent de New Line Vacation explique, il n’y a pas de paiement initial. Mais lorsque le consommateur reçoit l’email de confirmation, il est un ” Code confidentiel».

Lorsque l’accès au Web avec ce code, il y a une PROTOCOLE DE CONVENTION DE CESSION DE DROIT D’OCCUPATION-

Ici, ils disent clairement: Une caution de 499 € doit être versée avant tout déplacement correspondant à la constitution du dossier, la vérification de votre bien, les frais juridiques et de traduction ainsi que la prise de rendez vous pour le jour de la transaction et la possibilité de séjourner gratuitement jusqu’à 7 nuits dans un hôtel 4* à Marrakech.

Cela ne ressemble pas à “aucun paiement”!

Veuillez noter que les entreprises qui vous appellent à froid, ils ont évidemment obtenu vos coordonnées et les détails d’adhésion par le biais d’une source illégale et s’elles vous offrent une garantie de revente demandant de se rendre à un autre pays et payer des frais initiaux … elles ne sont pas dignes de confiance!

Avez-vous été contacté par New Line Vacation par le numéro +00212 621 673 059? S’il vous plaît, faites-nous savoir.

Have you received cold calls from New Line Vacation based in Marrakech?

Captura de pantalla 2016-05-11 a la(s) 10.47.59

This alert goes out for a company called New Line Vacation which is a timeshare resale company, based in Marrakech and with a very familiar pitch.

New Line Vacation contacts consumers mainly in France and Belgium and offers to buy their timeshare. In order to sell the timeshare, the owner must go to Marrakech and attend a meeting with an alleged buyer.

They explain to the consumers that there is already an agreed sale price and the price is surprisingly high for the sole purpose of convincing the consumer of the good deal.

Their address is BP 10114 Avenue Mohamed V Gueliz 40 000 Marrakech (Maroc) and telephone number +00212 621 673 059; email: contact@newlinevacation.com

The website is http://newlinevacation.com

The New Line Vacation officer explains that there is no down payment. But when the consumer receives the confirmation email, it contains a “confidential Code”.

When you access the Web with this code, there is a PROTOCOL RIGHT TRANSFER AGREEMENT OCCUPATION-

Here they say clearly: A deposit of € 499 must be paid before any movement corresponding to the creation of the record, verification of your property, legal fees and translation as well as making appointments for the day of the transaction and the opportunity to stay for free up to 7 nights in a 4 * hotel in Marrakech.

This does not sound like “no payment”!

Please note that companies that cold call you, obviously got your contact information and membership details through an illegal source and when they offer a guaranteed resale requesting you to travel to another country and pay upfront fees … they are not trustworthy!

Have you been contacted by New Line Vacation with the number +00212 621 673 059? Please, let us know.
