We are receiving quite a lot of inquiries about a Mr Eric Palmer calling from the European Notary.
One would expect this European Notary to have a proper name of company name, but after several emails we are afraid that this is it, the name is European Notary.
Of course a very clever name as this does not really facilitate the Google searches when you try to find feedback on this company to see if they are genuine.
The story of Eric Palmer is that they as a Malaga based Notary office are calling on behalf of the Timeshare resale company the timeshare owner is using or paid to for the resale of his Timeshare membership. Companies that already acted against the law by requesting an upfront fee. Names such as Viva Connect, Blue Chip and Official Transfer Services are mentioned.
The European Notary now is completing the sale of the Timeshare Membership and need a payment of the 21% VAT to process the paperwork.
This tax payment would be “recoverable” by completing a tax rebate form which the European Notary can provide and even will help with filling in.
We have no address for this European Notary, only the name of Mr Eric Palmer and the different Spanish mobiles he is using for this dubious set up.
The numbers are +34 627 800002 and 0034 603 193 237
The 21% VAT (IVA) that needs to be paid up front, has to be transferred to a personal bank account in the name of Daryl Anthony Smith (Allegedly the Head of Treasury).
Please note that there is NO SUCH COMPANY OR NOTARY in the name of European Notary in Malaga or Spain and it is certainly not a normal procedure to pay the 21% tax upfront and into an account under an individual’s name!
