Cold caller warning for the fake insolvency specialists Legarda.

legarda

A new company has started their cold calls under the name of Legarda and they are claiming to be the appointed liquidators for Reclaim ltd.

This pitch is certainly not based on the truth as the official appointed liquidators are PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Gibraltar!

But Legarda seems to be unaware of all this and continues to cold call Reclaim Ltd certificate holders.

As with the other fake liquidators, Legarda assures the certificate holder that they can claim back the money for them, and all they need to do is filling in a claimant form. They also insist to the fact that they are not asking for any fees as this will be paid out of the recovered money from the liquidation.

This together with copies of the Reclaim certificate has to be emailed or faxed to Legarda, and they will process the claim.

Contact details for Legarda are Address: Calle Puentezuelas 26 -3, 18002 Granada, telephone number 0034 951 650 262, fax 0034 951 650 268 and email legarda@post.com

Consumers who have been contacted by Legarda or one of the previous fake liquidators have asked us, “what is in it for them if they don’t charge any fees?”..

Well, that is easy, first of all they make you believe there are no fees, but once submitted the documentation and shown interest to go ahead with the claim; there is a slight “hiccup” in this straight forward claim. The certificate holder needs to pay taxes or at least have an NIE – Spanish Tax ID number. Legarda will explain in length how difficult it is to obtain such number, hours of queuing up, several trips to Spain…and not even the guarantee to obtain the number in one of these trips.

But the good news is that Legarda will process this all for you against a fee… And that is where the show begins!

So yes there is “something” in it for them, and they will start asking you for all kinds of fees and taxes.

Legarda is not a registered company in Spain and the fact they do not want to receive any post makes us believe the address is not really belonging to them either.

So please do not trust this company or any other company that cold calls you claiming to be the liquidators of Reclaim Ltd.

If you have been contacted by Legarda from 951650262 in Granada, then please let us know.

    Its all a ploy. Marketing a free no obligation sign up and join 18k others who are all part of the action group backed by Lloyds bank. Once they have your details they will send you to offices throughout the UK and pitch you a get out relinquishment for 5 or 6K. All very well however, you will probably find in a few years time you will still have the timeshare and lost money – don’t do it, all they do is pay your maintenance or rent it out and I don’t believe they will get you out. Speak to your resort or Tatoc / RDO for ways to get out.

    HI
    I was called last week by a lady called Melanie from ‘Timeshare Release’ Tel 01225 437086 giving me the usual speel. She was going on about RCI action group and would I like to lodge a complaint, but to do so I would have to travel to their nearest lawyers office 2 hours away. Although for the first time I did not have to pay a fee up front, but still seems dodgy!
