A new cold calling liquidator has been spotted this week by the name of Mallorey-Duchamps.
This company Mallorey Duchamps contacts Timeshare owners who previously have been defrauded by bogus resale companies.
The agent of Mallorey-Duchamps explains in detail that this fraudulent company has been closed down and all assets are seized. The company Mallorey-Duchamps has been appointed as the liquidators and is contacting the victims in order to pay them the money that has been awarded to them through the court. The amount of money is not only the deposit the timeshare owners paid for the supposed resale, they will also receive the actual sales price promised, so that is deposit + the sale!
After the initial contact the agent explains as well that the Timeshare owner can expect a follow up call the next day to discuss how the owner will receive this money from the liquidated assets.
The following day a Mr. Lambert indeed calls back and goes through the whole story again. He then kindly asks the Timeshare owner how he wants to be paid (money order, cheque or banker’s order). And surprisingly he also mentions that the Timeshare owner can chose to be paid by Mallorey Duchamps or they can call into any “Hacienda y Cabildo” office in any city in Spain and be paid there.
Strangely enough those consumers, who chose to be paid in Spain because they happened to have a trip booked already, have not been contacted again for any details of this payment.
Those who show interest in this pay out through Mallorey Duschamps are informed though that they will need to pay the taxes over the awarded amount, Taxes they can pay by bank transfer into an account under an individual’s name. As soon as the taxes are paid, a Mr. Diego Vargas at the tax office will be informed and release the money!
Mallory-Duchamps claims to be based in the UK, the address they quote is 21, St Julian’s Avenue, St Peter’s Port, Guernsey GY1

No website for Mallory Duchamps and neither have we found a UK Companies House Registration.
Adding this up to the cold call and the fake story of the assets being seized from the different companies, and the bank transfer to an individual supposedly at the Spanish Tax office.. we can only say to be extremely cautious with these people.
