A new cold caller has been spotted by the name of Cowley & Cranbrook Solicitors.
This company claims to be acting on behalf of Lemmingtons Property Services who has instructed them to handle the legal part of the completion of a timeshare resale.
Needless to say the Timeshare owner who is cold called has never heard from Lemmingtons Property Services, but as their ownership is up for sale the offer might be ok.
Cowley & Cranbrook solicitors are supposedly based in Mallorca.
The address on their letterhead is as follows:
Carrer Virgin Bonanova 65, 07014 Palma de Mallorca, España
Telephone 0845 867 8812 and Fax 0871 520 4834
On the paperwork there is no mention of the address or contact details for Lemmingtons property Services.
What Cowley & Cranbrook Solicitors wants from the Timeshare owner is a 10% legal fee charged over the sales price. They even make it sound like if this is normal procedure and the Timeshare owner “should know”.
This fee should be paid by Bank Transfer to an account under the name Of CAC Solicitors in a bank in Barcelona.
Maybe it would be a good idea to point out to these dubious solicitors that the request for an upfront payment is against the law, so illegal. Strange a solicitor would not know.
But then of course researching the Spanish Companies House we don’t find a registration of any company in Mallorca or Spain under the name of Cowley & Cranbrook solicitors or Lemmingtons Property Services.
If you have been contacted by Cowley & Cranbrook Solicitors with phone 08458678812 in Mallorca or the mysterious Lemmingtons Property Services, please do let us know.
