Thanks for the information and the time.

I am sorry but I cannot give you good news then.

I cannot tell you whether this is a scam or not but I can tell you that its almost certainly a bad deal. It makes no sense at all to require her to pay anyway. She is stilling a product. Its reasonable enough that they will get paid for their services but they can deduct any cost from profits.

In fact, they should not be taking an up front fee for a timeshare resell now in any event if they are within the EU.

Ask them why they need a fee upfront to sell her product and don't send any more money.

I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
