Carmona Martos, the fake lawyers from Granada.


A new cold calling lawyers office has been spotted by the name of Carmona Martos.

Carmona Martos approaches the Timeshare owners on a cold call to tell them that they can try to recover the Cash Back money they are/were due through the Spanish Courts.

Initially they are not talking about a fee, but after the first cold call they do send an authorization form and ask for all kinds of paperwork and personal details.

Carmona Martos displays an address in Granada on their website, this website was registered at the end of August 2013

The address is Calle San Jeronimo 14, 28014 Granada. Strangely enough they also claim on the web to be dealing mainly with business in the Madrid Area. That is about 450 kilometers away!

Telephones a Spanish Mobile: (34) 602 425 631 Email:  and Fax: (34) 958 190 557

Research has shown that there are no lawyers or offices registered under the name of Carmona Martos. Not in Granada, not in the entire of Spain.

Neither would it be a common practice for a lawyer or legal adviser to cold call which means he has obtained your personal details through unlawful sources!

The cold call, the un-existing office, un-existing lawyer, the strange website which was registered only over a month ago…do we have to add more things to convince these people are not to be trusted?

If you have been contacted by Carmona Martos from 602425631 in Granada or where ever in Spain for a claim, then do let us know.

    Eddie Grey was my ‘accountant’ who had managed to get me my money from the ‘frozen Bank accounts of Viva Connect’. His company was Capital Accounts at a Blackpool address Needed 2x £200 ukash vouchers to open a link with Spanish Banks. Gave me Ukash customer service number………this checked out ok. Bought the vouchers today but stopped myself…. once bitten twice shy. Rechecked his company with companies house all legit, decided to have a look through google earth yep address was a security firm. No connection. His telephone number is from wavecrest so the chances are he is in spain and the call is transferred. Contacted Ukash myself and they were appalled but not surprised. I will get my money back from my vouchers but i was so taken in againI nearly forgot the old saying… if it sounds to good to be true it probably is.
    So my saviour is called Eddie Grey Sounds Middle aged, lancashire accent Beware of a call from him also has a female companion Alexandra Clark who pretends to be from UKash customer services.

    I was telephoned on Monday 7 October 2013 by a Karen Riley who purported to be from the Notary’s Office in either Malaga or Granada (she didn’t make it clear!) She had all my details regarding Freedom Vacation Network (FVN) and told me that their account had been frozen and is being investigated with the case being heard by Court House 5 in Malaga. If I paid £985.00 (to cover Spanish Taxes), I would receive the original amount that I paid to FVN in 2007 and on completion of the ‘case’ I would be refunded the £985.

    The Solicitor dealing with the case is a Mr James Anthony Lancaster, at the following address:
    Caja Rural de Grenada, Virgen de la Fena 2, Mijas Pueblo, Granada.

    I am supposed to give them a copy of either my passport or driving licence, and a current utility bill. I must not pay by Card and was given the following numbers for Bank transfers:
    IVAN: ES6530230428955859941915 and BIC: BCOEESMM023

    I know that this is probably too good to be true – is it yet another elaborate scam?

    Sr Garcia

    We still continue to follow your blog

    Interestingly, may I say, since the recovery our money from our bank following our “upset” with ITRA, we are not being contacted by any of these “companies” you mention on a daily basis. ITRA have even given up their insistent chasing over their action against RCI.

    Strange? Coincidental? Or maybe ITRA is behind all of this?

    Once again, thanks for everything you did to help and support us.

    Kind regards

    Good afternoon Alberto The name of Carmona Martos has been addd to my ever-growing list! No comment.

    I was called today around 1 p.m. UK time, just as i was about to leave for a meeting by one Arthur Bradley, speaking from Gibraltar. with the number 0207 1833 531. I queried the Gibraltar reference as of course 0207 is a preface to London numbers. Hiowever it was the usual tale of getting money back and for once I managed to get him to call me back on Monday Oct14 around 1 p.m. UK time. If he calls (!) what would you like me to say to him? What line would you find most illuminating? I’ll play along and see whar he has to offer (and will take notes!) He had a North country tone, rather than actually an accent, and I would say was middle-aged, I didn’t ask for the name of his firm outright as I was literallyabout to leave when he rang.

    Regards Marrion
