Thanks to the information received from a timeshare consumer who often reads our blog and checks with us every time she is approached on a cold call, we can inform (warn!!) you all about the following company.
G&G Representations, with alleged address in Calle Bartina 20, Getafe, 28905 Madrid, is actually sending emails under the address “G G fuengirola” firstname.lastname@example.org.
So maybe they are not in Madrid. As a matter of fact, there is no street by such name in Getafe or Madrid anyway.
This company approaches the timeshare consumers by cold call and use the guaranteed resale pitch with buyer waiting of which they even give the name in an email and allegedly they have the deposit in the account. “Only thing missing” is the upfront fee from the seller of €1200 (£900).
In their confirmation email they put all details of the supposed sale and a contact number for information: 0845 527 5017
But when speaking to the timeshare owner they also give out another number 0845 527 7822
This number is actually linked to a recently created website for www.rioresortsinternational.com This website looks at first sight a Discount Holiday Club, and even displays, WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT, the logos of RCI and Interval International.
Their address though is based in a post box in the Costa del Sol town of Fuengirola and no further identification of this company is available on the web.
So what do we have? We have a combination of an alleged resale company, asking for an upfront fee, located in a non-existing address in Madrid, with contact details in Fuengirola and UK 0845 numbers that apparently switch through to Spain to a dubious discount holiday club based in a post box.
Our advice? Don’t even go near them!
If you have been contacted by the above mentioned companies / telephone numbers, we would like to know!
Or have you been called by any other alleged timeshare resale company? We also would like to know!
Please help us avoid more timeshare consumers being cheated by unscrupulous companies and tell us about your experience!
