Beware of the fake Notary called Luis Ribera Suarez from Madrid!

Captura de pantalla 2015-04-28 a la(s) 16.10.37

A new fake notary has been brought to our attention by a French Timeshare Owner. This notary office is working under the name of Luis Ribera Suarez.

The Oficina Notarial Luis Ribera Suarez is cold calling mainly French timeshare consumers who have had dealings with dubious resale companies in the past.

The agent from Luis Ribera Suarez breaks the good news that all of the sudden the timeshare membership has been sold and money is waiting in the bank to be transferred to the owner.

And all this without the owner knowing!

But when the money sounds good, one does not want to ask too many questions.

The problem is though that as the membership has been sold, the Timeshare owner now seems to be liable for a Spanish Tax payment IVA over the amount he will receive from the buyer.

As the buyer is paying close to 25.000 euros, the tax is close to 5000 euros.

The notary office Luis Ribera Suarez is taking care of all the paperwork and obviously needs the tax payment prior to releasing the money.

For this payment they kindly send the timeshare owner a document with all the amounts to be received and paid and the bank account details for the tax payment. A bank account that does not seem to have anything to do with the Spanish Government and is actually based in Bulgaria!

The details of Luis Ribera Suarez are as follows:

Oficina Notarial Luis Ribera-Suarez

Calle de Nuñez de Balboa, 28006 Madrid, Spain

Telephone (mobile) 0034 603 218 168


We can confirm that there is no such company or notary in Spain by the name of Luis Ribera Suarez and neither is there a notary based on mentioned address.

We do NOT recommend having any dealings with this fake notary office and certainly want to insist that you should not send any money or paperwork with personal details to this company.

If you have been contacted by Luis Ribera Suarez from +34 603218168 in Madrid, then please let us know.
