LHV Legal Consultant is a new cold caller with the same stories as many others. Again it is all about court cases taking place against timeshare companies and money set aside for the victims.
All the timeshare consumer has to do is pay legal fees, court costs or taxes and there you go, the money will be released from the government’s account and transferred to the timeshare owner.
Their follow up email explains it all:
“Further to our telephone conversation today we are happy to confirm the assets of eleven timeshare company’s seized in February 2011, have now been allocated to the clients we have been representing. You have been awarded £11.684.
The payment can be made to you on xxxxx the xx of June, by cheque. As discussed the court costs must be paid in advance in order for the courts to release the money. In this case the costs to yourselves are 1000 EUROS. We ask you to place the money into our client escrow account; this will enable us to make the payment to the court in your behalf.”
They also kindly provide the bank details of an individual to transfer the fees which is in the name of Leif Helge Velperstad.
LHV Legal Consultants does not seem to have a website, and neither do they mention a telephone number on their correspondence. All they give is an address: Plaza Independencia n°10, Torremolinos-Spain 29620 Spain.
LHV Legal Consultants does not seem to be registered at the Spanish Companies House, and neither is there any lawyer registered to be working for a company with this name.
Strange story is that they claim that money has been allocated to the clients they have been representing, but the timeshare owners they call were called out of the blue and certainly not “represented” by LHV Legal Consultants.
All in all a very dubious and strange story! If you have been contacted by LHV Legal Consultants from Torremolinos, please let us know! You can write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or place a comment on our blog.
