Have you been in contact with Viajes Turisticos from Malaga?

viajes turisticos

A new and much elaborated set up has been brought to our attention, with main company acting as Viajes Turisticos SA.

The initial cold call to the timeshare owner is from an agent of Viajes Turisticos. This company with address Calle Caurteles 17, 29002 Malaga, Spain claims to have buyers waiting for all kinds of timeshares / holiday club memberships and especially the one of the owner on the phone.

Contact details of Viajes Turisticos are email; Viajes-turisticos@mail.com telephone; 0034 951 560 044 and Fax 0034 951 248 931

We say elaborated set up, as there are different “companies” involved in this story.

Initially Viajes Turisticos requests an upfront fee to process the resale of the Timeshare membership. This fee is around 1950€ and is taken by credit card. But the Timeshare owner receives all the paperwork involved and even the name and address of the supposed buyers!

But after paying the processing fee, the timeshare owner is contacted again through the Organizacion de Timesharing in Europa based in Madrid, Calle Mayor 12/2/1a, ES 28003 Madrid, Spain.

Contact numbers TLF / Fax; 0034 917903721 and email i-t-s-o@europe.com

Through this supposed official entity it appears the timeshare owner is due maintenance fees for his membership. Fees the owner didn’t know about, but as they include a letter from the Holiday Club with an apparent Logo of the club, it all looks correct. So the outstanding fees of around 1800€ will have to be paid prior to the sale. This is done through a bank transfer to the account of an individual in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria (!)

But this is not the end of the story…

After the initial illegal deposit requested by Viajes Turisticos and the outstanding membership fees bill from the Organizacion de Timesharing in Europa, yet again the timeshare owner is contacted.

This time it is the Notary of Geral de Depositos, based at Plaza de los Flores 3a in Malaga. Contact details Mobile phone +34 691296382 or fax; 0034 951248918 and email geraldedepositos@mail.com This is not a courtesy call, but yet again a plea for more money needed to complete the sale! Capital Gains Tax of a 20% over the purchase price is needed to avoid “Criminal Tax Evasion”. Again a bank transfer can be done to resolve this issue..

Please note that none of above mentioned companies are real companies! There is no Viajes Turisticos, no Organizacion de Timesharing in Europa or Geral de Depositos.

This is a SCAM!

If you have been contacted by any of the above companies, then please contact us as soon as possible. Do NOT PAY them any money.
