One of the latest cold callers is a company using the name of JR Abogados (FAKE).
This (fake) lawyers’ company is based in Tenerife and their way of working has all the looks of the Fake lawyer group from Tenerife that has been defrauding consumers over the past years.
These bogus lawyers are using or better said abusing the name of a genuine lawyers company that is based on mainland Spain, and certainly do not have anything to do with claims against timeshare companies or similar. If you compare contact details you will see they do not coincide!
As consumers tell us, the representatives of this company who seem to have their full history of timeshare ownership and dealings, tells them about a claim being lodged shortly in the courts.
This representative is referred to as the “Senior Consultant” Mr. Matthew Forton.
Follow up emails are signed by Maria Navas from the Legal Department.
The bogus law company JR Lawyers quotes as their address the Avenida Daltar 109, Edificio Borla, 38001, Santa Cruz, Tenerife.
Once they have the consumer’s attention they quickly go over to asking money for all kinds of fees and taxes before the consumer can actually get the awarded amount transferred to their bank account.
Please note that you cannot join a claim just like that, with a cold call from a company you never spoke with before.
There are no class actions in Spain against holiday companies, and again, you cannot just jump into a claim and join.
If you are approached by these “senior representatives” from J.R. Abogados or any other company telling you they are lawyers and you can join the upcoming claim, please let us know.
