Have you received a call from the notary Miguel Cortes Ortega from Madrid?

Captura de pantalla 2015-07-06 a la(s) 14.31.09

A new cold caller started this week, pretending to be a notary from Madrid by the name of Miguel Cortes Ortega.

A Dutch-speaking lady by the name of L. Daens explains that a resale has been agreed for the timeshare of the owner and this notary office of Mr. Miguel Cortes Ortega is handling all the paperwork.

But when trying to transfer the timeshare out of the name of the owner, all of the sudden an outstanding invoice appears of VAT that was never paid by the resort.

This outstanding payment is around the €6000 and should be paid into a bank account in a Polish bank. This account is in the name of a company called Universal Concept IF.

For the moment the notary Miguel Cortes Ortega is only targeting Dutch-speaking timeshare owners but of course they might want to “expand” their business to other nationalities.

Address quoted for this office is Calle de Lérida 32-34, 28020 in Madrid.

Research has shown that there is no such office at the mentioned address and neither is there any notary in Madrid or Spain

Telephone number they are using is a Spanish mobile 0034 692809572 and the email address is a Gmail account: Notario.cortesortega@gmail.com

Please note that this company does NOT exist, so you should not have any dealings with them and certainly not provide them with further personal details or make any payment!

If you have been contacted by any person from telephone +34 692 809 572 claiming to be working for a Spanish notary by the name of Miguel Cortes Ortega, then please do let us know.

    Hi just received a call from a person saying they were TIME SHARE ADVICE CENTRE. I think they had something to do with ITRA as they referred to a contact made back in April.
    They wanted information as to my time share and my length of ownership, I was unwilling to pass this info on.

    They said they were calling from Brighton the number (checked by call ID) is 01252 756104.

    I indicated I was happy with my choices with the hope they will not call again.

    Your emails and info is much appreciated.
