We study the interaction of two $ D^* $ and a $\bar{K}^{*}$ by using the Fixed Center Approximation to the Faddeev equations to search for bound states of the three body system. Since the $ D^* D^* $ interaction is attractive and gives a bound state, and so is the case of the $D^* \bar{K}^{*}$ interaction, where the $J^{P}=0^{+}$ bound state is identified with the $X_0 (2900)$, the $ D^* D^* \bar{K}^{*}$ system leads to manifestly exotic bound states with $ccs$ open quarks. We obtain bound states of isospin $I=1/2$, negative parity and total spin $J=0,1,2$. For $J=0$ we obtain one state, and for $J=1,2$ we obtain two states in each case. The binding energies range from $56$ MeV to $151$ MeV and the widths from $80$ MeV to $100$ MeV. Using the analogy of $D^* D^* \bar K^*$ system, we also study the three-body system $B^* B^* K^*$ containing the $bbc$ open quarks. We obtain bound states for all the channels considered $J=0$, 1 and 2, all of them with $I=1/2$ and negative parity. I will give a presentation based on Refs. [1]-[2].
