A new cold caller on the list, this time a Lawyer’s office called Varela y Navarro.
This is a tricky one as when searching on the internet under Varela y Navarro Abogados, you will find indeed a lawyer’s office in Alicante by this name.
Even the address is the same: C/ paseo de l’Explanada de España, 1 03002 Alicante, España
What does not coincide are the contact numbers: Telephone: +34 602 561 247 and Fax: +34966263042
And neither the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
A very serious case of identity theft and with a very clear reason to get money out of innocent Timeshare consumers for a supposed lawyer’s service that does not exist.
Varela y Navarro seems to be focusing on Dutch speaking consumers and Mr. Mark Verstraete is the contact person who makes the initial cold call and sends the follow up email.
Mark Verstraete kindly informs the consumer that there has been a court case against their Timeshare Company / Cash Back Company and the case has been lost by these companies and they have to compensate the consumer.
Money is now waiting in a government account to be awarded to the victims of these companies.
In order to release this money the consumer will have to pay the notary costs. These costs are close to €8000 but of course the consumer is going to receive all the money of his timeshare investment back for this.
The money needs to be paid into the account of the so called notary, Mr. J Van Herreweghe. A surprising Belgium name for a supposed Spanish notary…
Please be extremely careful when dealing with Mr. Mark Verstraete or any other person claiming to be calling from Varela y Navarro in order to send you money!
