A new alert goes out for a dubious Timeshare resale company by the name of Urbania Mar Inmobiliaria.
This company seems to be targeting mainly French speaking Timeshare owners.
They cold call and tell the Timeshare owner there is a buyer for their membership, and this buyer is willing to pay a large sum of money. The buyer is not an individual but a large company “Kalise” based in Spain and they are buying the weeks in order to provide staff holidays.
Sounds all very positive and paperwork can be arranged straight away. Kalise is supposedly putting down a large deposit for an amount of weeks and the Timeshare owner needs to be quick so their week can be included in the selling badge.
In order though to get the sale processed, the Timeshare owner needs to pay a security deposit of around 2500 euros which will be refunded upon the completion of the sale. The payment to be done by bank transfer.
After the Timeshare owner transfers the money, Urbania Mar Inmobiliaria no longer picks up the phone and is not replying to any email. Needless to say that there is no such sale with Kalise.
The details we have on Urbania Mar Inmobiliaria are, telephone 0034 952 842 555 and email address firstname.lastname@example.org
The address they display on their paperwork is not real and no timeshare companies are based at Calle Progreso 66, Bajo 3B, 21870 Sanxenxo, Spain.
Cold calls and upfront fees are indications that a company should be handled with extreme care.
