An alert goes out for those who are approached by Moncasa Gestion Inmobiliaria SL.
This cold calling bogus resale company pretends to have buyers for timesharing and produce very authentically looking paperwork.
Moncasa Gestion Inmobiliaria SL provides an address in the paperwork: Calle de Empedrada 6 (Esquina Calle Valverde) 34002 Palencia, Spain.
Contact details are: Spanish Mobile +34 698 738 665 UK number +44 0701 007 2261
This address is indeed for a real estate company called Moncasa Gestion. But the phone numbers and email address are not for this “real” company and this real estate office apart from it being a pure Spanish company is certainly NOT selling timeshare!
The story the “fake” Moncasa Gestion comes up with is that there is a buyer waiting to purchase the timeshare. This buyer is never somebody from the same country as the seller (!!) but in the paperwork they do provide a (fake) name of this supposed buyer and address. They also produce a receipt to proof that this buyer has already transferred an amount into their “Escrow” account as a deposit for the purchase.
What could ever go wrong?
So the timeshare owner has all the “guarantees” in place for this sale, and this is the moment when Moncasa Gestion Inmobiliaria sends an agreement to complete the sale and where it is made clear that the timeshare owner needs to pay a 9% security fee upfront.
This money needs to be paid by bank transfer.
Once this has been done, Moncasa Gestion Inmobiliaria waits a couple of days and then calls back with bad news. The money is waiting to be transferred to the Timeshare owner, but a 21% IVA (VAT) needs to be paid as the Spanish Government has blocked the money transfer until the tax is paid. They even go as far as sending the timeshare owner a tax form with all the details filled in, and a bank account of an Individual, certainly NOT the tax office!
It is obvious that Moncasa Gestion Inmobiliaria SL is NOT to be trusted as they are definitely not the resale or real estate company they pretend to be.
