A new bogus resale company has come to our attention as the supposedly London-based Macquarie Developments.
Macquarie Developments contacts French speaking timeshare owners by cold calling and telling them a story about a business buyer they already have on hold, keen on buying their weeks, and the price offered is of course the current market price.
The company that was supposed to buy the timeshare weeks is Hong Kong-based Charter Queen, but the point is, there is no such company or buyer of timeshare weeks.
The timeshare owner is asked for payment to show their interest in selling.
Macquarie Developments sends the consumer a copy of a (fake) resale contract and they demand money for the resale rights and cadastral registration.
Macquarie Developments contact person, this Sophie Auvant.
Strange thing is that Miss Sophie uses a Gmail account to communicate with the customers:
And although they are based in London, she uses a Spanish cell phone: 0034 602 44 29 **
Please note that companies that cold call you, obviously got your contact details and membership details through an illegal source and if they offer you a resale guarantee asking to pay an upfront fee … they are not trustworthy!
