    Six britons arrested for Costa del Sol timeshare scam

    By h.b. - Feb 2, 2009 - 12:28 AM

    The six, a manager and five telesales operators have not been named.

    National Police from Málaga have arrested six British people in Fuengirola for defrauding other Britons in the fraudulent resale of timeshare property in the province of Málaga.

    The manager and five telesales operators offered timeshares on the Costa del Sol for one or several weeks across many years, for large amounts of money. It seems the same timeshare rights were resold to different buyers several times, according to a statement from the main police station in Málaga.

    The case started after a complaint from a British person about a company based in Alhaurín el Grande.

    The company used several different names and closed down, only to reopen in Fuengirola.

    The six arrested will appear in court shortly.

    Received phone call from IGS offering to sell my timeshare. Within a few days buyer was found offering to pay well over my asking price, but I had to pay 1300 Euros surity before the transaction could be completed. Would be refunded on receipt of deeds. Told them to take cost from the payment for timeshare but " according to Spanish Law this was not possible". You can probably guess I told her NO Way. I'm a tightfisted scot, after all!

    Dear Madam,

    We wrote an article almost a decade ago on this scam:

    Timeshare resellers: Be careful! - 23rd August 2001

    It's impressive how this scam just goes on and on from one decade onto the next.

    Yours faithfully,

    I have just had a very tempting offer of a very good price for my timeshare from International Global Services. Usual story of a buyer already interested. But this time they insist that there is no up front payment at all. I will receive the full payment before sending off the deeds by courier. Sounds too good to be true. Any advice or similar experience?

    Hello,
    I got scammed by Property Transfers S.L. around 10 years ago and lost ca. £600. My anger still burns and I would love to get even with Mr. Richard White or whoever they are.
    Regards
    Mike
