A new cold calling resale company has been spotted by the name of Inmobiliaria Barreras.
Inmobiliaria Barreras contact timeshare owners, mainly French speaking owners, by cold call and tell them a story about a corporate buyer which they have already waiting, keen on purchasing their weeks, and the price offered is well over the current market price.
As to reports received from consumers, the buyer that supposedly is interested to purchase their weeks is a big international company, Kalise SA España and Inmobiliaria Barreras provide the consumer even with a contract that seems to evidence this.
As usual with this kind of business, Inmobiliaria Barreras asks the consumer to pay an upfront fee, and once more we ask ourselves how it is possible that these people do not know about the European Timeshare Directive, which states clearly that requests for upfront fees are not allowed when offering resale of timeshare weeks.
We would say this looks the same as all the other resale companies that pop up and disappear continuously, and we would certainly not recommend to pay any money to such a company.
PLEASE MAKE SURE NEVER TO MAKE ANY UPFRONT PAYMENTS!
Their address stated on their documents is Calle Infanta María Teresa 17, 28016 Madrid.
