This warning goes out mainly for French-speaking timeshare owners.
It has been brought to our attention that after receiving calls from fake resale companies such as for example Grupo Marcia or Progreso & Gestion, the consumer receives a call from Garcia Roca Notario.
Mrs. Aline Dauban or Mr. Alain Longuet, supposedly working for Étude D. MANUEL GARCIA ROCA explain to the consumer that they are taking over the files of the (fake) resale agency which had gone bankrupt.
They offer the consumer the redemption of their week as the money from the sale was deposited on accounts by the Chinese company who supposedly was buying all the timeshare.
But, as Mrs. Dauban / Mr Longuet point out, the consumer will have to pay IVA, Spanish tax.
After the telephone call they send an invoice, which looks real but is completely fake!
PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!
They set up a website to make it look all more real; http://www.notariogarciaroca.com
This was registered on the 19th of March 2019, so only 1 month ago!
Contact details are:
Étude D. MANUEL GARCIA ROCA
Plaza Alfonso el Magnánimo, 7 46003 VALENCIA (Valencia)
Telephone direct: +34 960 132 685
If you have been in contact with a resale company and are now called by people from the notary office Garcia Roca Notarios, please let us know.
DO NOT PAY ANY MONEY TO THESE PEOPLE!
