Strange cold calls are received lately by the timeshare owners who have fallen victim before of dubious resale companies.
One of those strange cold calls comes supposedly from the “Inland Revenue” office in Spain, the tax office in Madrid.
Straight on the first call the agent calling from the ADMINISTRACIÓN JUDICIAL informs the consumer that he has been awarded money in compensation for paying a bogus company in the past, which is now closed down.
But, you probably already expected this; there are taxes to be paid before the money can be transferred into the consumers account.
And these taxes need to be paid using the NIE number of the consumer, so if he doesn’t have an NIE number, he also needs to arrange for that.
Luckily the agent from Administracion Judicial can help with all these matters, against a payment of course.
In order to back this story up the consumer is send by email a range of official looking forms, supposedly produced by the tax offices and a bank account in the name of an individual to pay the taxes.
Contact details for this Inland Revenue / Madrid Tax offices are:
Calle Castelló 123 28006 Madrid
Telephone: +34 910 601 721 Fax: +34 917 903 570
Please be aware that there is no such thing as Tax offices calling to pay out money that has been awarded in compensation without any prior knowledge of this.
Neither are taxes paid into the accounts under individual’s names nor is an NIE number needed.
If the Administración Judicial from 0034910601721 has contacted you already then please let us know!
