This warning goes out for a fake notary office in Portugal calling themselves Ordem Dos Notarios. They pretend to be the notaries working on behalf of the Lisboa Tribunais (Portuguese Supreme Court)
Timeshare owners, who had dealings in the past with bogus resale companies in Spain, are being told by the Lisboa Tribunais that these companies have been tracked and closed down in Portugal.
All assets have been seized and there is money blocked in the bank accounts in order to pay back to the victims.
In order to obtain this refund of the lost money, the timeshare consumer needs to taxes. For each company the consumer dealt with there is a charge of £450. This can be arranged through the Ordem Dos Notarios.
Ordem Dos Notarios requests these payments by Western Union. They send the consumer forms by email that supposedly are the receipts from the court, with a display of all kinds of official logos. These forms are fake.
Once the payment is made through Western union into the name of an individual, they call back again to the Timeshare owner and request more money for more taxes.
Please note that this is a FAKE company! There is no such company as Ordem Dos Notarios or Lisboa Tribunais calling victims of timeshare resale companies, and neither have these companies been closed down in Portugal or raided by the police!
The telephone numbers used by Ordem Dos Notarios: 00351 964659388 and 00351 92655488
If you have been contacted by Lisboa Tribunais or Ordem Dos Notarios then please DO NOT MAKE ANY PAYMENT!
