Timeshare ScamsI have been approached by UK companies based

This answer was rated:

Timeshare Scams I have been approached by UK companies based in Spain offering my money back but before releasing it to me I am required to pay £1600 up front in tax to the Spanish Government who are holding this money for those who were mis-old products - our product was an online flight travel system Connect 6. This company is calling me back this afternoon as I requested a tax phone number that I could contact to verify this transaction but it was English speaking lady who advised on the recorded message that the office would be closed until 08 January 2013. I first of all verified the Spanish Tax Office by telephoning their call centre which obviously was answered by a Spanish person who unfortunately could not speak English and my Spanish did not extend to being able to describe my query. Is there any truth in truth in what they say re this money being held for those mis-sold products. Your advice would be appreciated. Kathleen Gilmartin Scotland UK

I did not do this and was told I had broken my contract but only last week I received a telephone call from a UK based company TravelU making an offer.
