A new dubious cold caller has been brought to our attention, which apparently is the “notary” office in Corfu.
Although the timeshare owner never had any dealings with anybody in Corfu, it appears all of the sudden that their timeshare has now been sold and this notary is handling all the paperwork.
One common factor is that all the consumers at some point paid to a dubious resale company for the resale of their membership and then never heard anything back.
This notary from Corfu seems to know everything about this transaction though and claims that the sale finally has gone through.
The person calling from this office with a perfect English accent is IOANNA MAKRIANAKIS and she reconfirms the conversation by email using the address: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the email she explains the consumer has “administrative obligations to the Hellenic Republic”. These obligations seem to be an amount of around £800 and the timeshare owner can pay these by Money Gram to an individual with a Greek name.
All other paperwork send to the consumer is in Greek, and the only thing that one can understand from there is that they are about to receive £12000 for the timeshare when they pay the admin fees to the Greek government.
There is no address on the paperwork, no company name or notary name and all the consumer get is the above mentioned email address and a Telephone number:
+30 211 198 5556
Please note that this is not a trustworthy call and you should never pay any money to a cold caller and less if this is to a cold caller who does not identify themselves properly, know about previous frauds you were a victim of and ask for the payment through Money or similar.
If you have received a call from Ioanna Makrianakis or associated, using Telephone number 0030 2111985556 then please let us know.
