We don’t use a lot the word fraudulent but in this case we have no problem to put it as clear as it is, Asociados de Hacienda is a fraudulent cold caller!
This company which supposedly is based in Calle Puerto 9 – 12, 29601 Malaga, Spain, cold calls timeshare consumers to notify them of the sale of their timeshare and the fact they need to pay an 8% tax over the sales price.
Explanation is once again the “famous” NIE number, the Tax Registration number which they claim is necessary for this transaction.
Asociados de Hacienda even spent time on elaborating a website where they display logos of the Spanish Tax Office and pretend to be genuine lawyers dealing with real estate sales and tax declarations.
The website http://www.asociadosdehacienda.com was registered on the 29th of March 2012 and lacks all information required for a website.
As contact number they have a Spanish mobile +34 602 155 609
The timeshare owners, who informed us about this scam, did luckily their research and realized that the supposed Tax payment form 214 that was sent to them has not been in use for over 3 years now. Neither did they find it logical that the tax payment was to be done to an individual with a British name; Paul Robert Strickland on a different address; Senorio De Aloha, Avda Manolete, 29660 Nueva, Andalucia, Malaga
Please be extremely cautious when companies like Asociados de Hacienda or any other claiming to be working on behalf of the Spanish Government or Tax Offices, as these companies are not for real!
DO NOT pay ever money by bank transfer, Western Union or Money Gram in names of individuals that supposedly work for Lawyers offices, notaries or other official institutions in Spain.
