Lot of scams around timeshare resale, do not stop after asking for an initial payment of a deposit to process the sale.
It happens often that when a consumer pays the deposit, the dubious company continues the spiel and leads the consumer to further payments.
This is the case with the resale of Grupo Marcia.
Once the deposit is paid, they confirm timeshare resale is in place.
They ask the consumer for a bank account where they can send them the money received from the sale.
But the money never arrives…
The timeshare owner is explained that the money is blocked in the Spanish account, as there is an obligatory resident tax payment due.
The person who can unblock the money and process the payment is Mr. David Lopez
David Lopez works for a company called Hutchinson Holiday World (HH World Limited)
He presents himself as working in the department “French Customer Services Hutchinson”

The resident tax is around 2500 Euros, but the consumer is assured they can claim this back.
After the consumer pays this, they are also asked for another 3000 euros as transfer fee of the timeshare week to the new owner.
Strange enough the consumers are asked for supposed Spanish taxes, in euros to be paid into UK bank accounts!
PLEASE NOTE that this is all a fake resale, there is no buyer, there is no tax and no transfer fee as there is NO sale!
Do not pay them a euro, as you will not see your money back!
