Scam warning on cold calls from a fake agent of La Caixa Bank – Legal Services

scam warning

It becomes very difficult to try and warn consumers about certain scams, when the fraudsters don’t even bother to provide a company name or as in this case, use the name of a reputable Spanish bank.

Cold calls have been received lately from people pretending to be working for a “Legal Service” of the La CAIXA BANK in Spain.

The person calling, by the name of Rebecca Walkman or Steve Payne, seems to know all about the membership the consumer has with Club Class and it also seems to coincide all the consumers have been dealing with a dubious resale company called Sunset Sales.

Rebecca or Steve explains that the Club Class Membership has been sold and that money is held in a La Caixa bank account to be transferred to the consumer.

All the consumer needs to do is pay the 21% VAT (IVA) over the blocked amount of money and this will be released then to the consumer.

As they pretend that the membership has been sold for thousands of Pounds, the VAT requested is around £2000

The bank account number in this La Caixa Bank is as follows:

IBAN: ES21 2100 2639 4120 1015 4186

B.I.C: CAIXESBBXXX

Branch: Avenida, Matias Saenz De Tejada, Fuengirola, Malaga

Contact details for these fake Legal Services from La Caixa Bank are the following email addresses: caixabanco@hotmail.com and rebeccalegalservices@gmail.com

They also provide the telephone numbers and website of La Caixa Bank, but obviously that is nonsense as NOBODY in the bank would know what the consumer is talking about!

If you have been approached by a person claiming to have money for you waiting in a bank account in Spain, subject to a VAT payment, please let us know!

The above people are obviously trying to leave no traces and are using fake names, and change email addresses and possibly their mobile phones. They need to be stopped and this can only be done with your help!

    All these scam people should be stopped , but how? I have just had one call, claiming to be fixing appointment for bank , to telephone me regarding money they are holding for me in La Caixa Bank of Spain. This money is from incentive leisure fraud. People in Spain , english people have been convicted of defrauding investors after taking money to help make claim, then taking the money themselves. They are ringing at 3 pm. It is already 2. Trouble is my husband is vulnerable , and badly wants to get some money back. The woman calling uses name Mallissa Cox. Very convincing . ,.Apparently we can be sent a bankers draft in settlement . Strangely the Caller witheld their Number. Will let you know what happens merryl

    I was cold called today by Stevie Jones, La Caixa Bank. I was informed they were holding £12.000. for me for the sale of my Club Class membership but I had to pay Spanish V.A.T. of £1320 in order to reclaim the money held by La Caixa Bank. I asked if he could give me proof that this was true. He said the case was being handled by Rebecca Walkman who was dealing with the customers of Sunset Sales after the bank had frozen their assets when they went bust. I have had my fingers burned before by these holiday scams and smelled a rat immediately. I strung him along as long as I could to try and get anything I could use against him , but he gave me no concrete information I can use against him. My comments to him in our last phone call were pretty nasty and cant be repeated in this blog.
