Customer Question

I am a British citizen. My wife and I are both members of Club Class Concierge. We have recieved several phone calls from alleged companies operating from Malaga in Spain wanting to buy our membership from us the offer being made around £15000. However we have reciently being informed that part of the Club Class organisation has been shut down by the Spanish courts and the British Office of Fair Trading. This morning we recieved a phone call allegedly from the Notary office in Malaga stating they have a cheque for us in settlement of our Club Class mrmbership, the sting in the tail being that we need a Spanish tax number (NIE number). Is normal under Spanish Law. For them to issue the cheque they want us to pay 7% up front or go to Malaga at our own expense. We are afraid this may be a scam and would be very grateful for your help.

Yours Sincerely

In no case of sell in Spain the law forces you to pay taxes in Spain

It is going to be hard and it will need time and money to get some money back. You will need to contract a local attorney ( for you or for a group ) and the attorney will make the slegal steps

But remember, time and money is requiered. Its not going to be easy

JACUSTOMER-ri6xc4rc- :

Yes, you are right

José M. :

The web has make the business easy to scamers and the things hard for the police
