A new alert goes out for Worthingtons Property Consultants with alleged address in Centro Comercial Local 10, Cabopino, 29600 Marbella Spain.
Their contact details are firstname.lastname@example.org and telephone 0845 564 7285
This apparent professional property consultant is cold calling consumers and offers a resale service without any costs upfront! They even send a nice document with company history and a picture of the team!
So far so good…
But once they have contacted the consumer, another player joins the game. Greenfield Solicitors, with alleged address in Oficina 44a, C/Alamandra, 29688, Estepona, Spain
Tel: 08708 758 471 Fax: 0871 520 4834 Email: email@example.com
They contact the timeshare owner with the great news a buyer has been found, not in the UK..no..better, in Munich, Germany a keen buyer who is going to pay a substantial amount for the timeshare is waiting for the papers and in the meantime has already deposited 50% of the sales price in an escrow account.
In the letter Greenfield sends to the timeshare owner they state:
“As you are aware, legal and deed transfer fees are payable by the seller in advance. “
Hold on! What happened to the no costs upfront?? What do you mean I am aware? No…
These 2 companies obviously are one, and they haven’t even bothered to set up a website. So many years in business but no website.
The letter is signed by Jenny Summers, solicitor. Maybe Ms. Summers has heard from the Timeshare Directive and not taking any fees upfront? Maybe Ms. Summers also knows that Spanish law does not allow Spanish Law Firms to market their services, so nobody working for Spanish Law Firms is allowed to cold call timeshare owners. Or did they get around that one, calling in the first instance as Worthingtons Property Consultants? Very clever!
They do state in their terms and conditions the following: “ADVANCED FEES: We are so convinced that every sale we make carries on through to completion that, if for some reason or another it fails to complete we guarantee to return 100% of your legal and deed transfer fees.”
Anybody prepared to take the risk seen the above?
Have you been called by Worthingtons Property Consultants on 08455647285 or maybe by Greenfield Solicitors on 08708758471?
