A dubious cold caller has been brought to our attention by the name of European Union Complaints.
The name on itself obviously indicates they want to give a very “official” impression, but a cold call and asking for money doesn’t really back up the “official” feeling…
The agent from European Union Complaints presents himself as somebody working in a legal department in Tenerife, and with a current court case running in the courts of Arona in Tenerife. Of course one of the cases they are currently handling is against a company that has duped the timeshare owner they are calling.
In their paperwork they state;”… Our Organization is noted as E.U Complaints with our Legal C.I.F A389324758 and officially recognized by the High Courts of Santa Cruz and currently administrating various issues regarding pending cases that have not been correctly registered or completed…”
The Timeshare owner is offered to join this court case on a “No Win No Fee” basis. All the timeshare owner needs to do is pay 1400 euros Barrister Fees to European Union Complaints and wait to see the outcome of the case. If the case is won, then a 20% fee will be taken from European Union Complaints for their work.
Research has shown that there are no such companies in Tenerife by the name of European Union Complaints; neither is there any court cases running in Arona.
Joining a court case without having to provide any paperwork, a Power of Attorney, copy of passports, etc. and not being provided with the proper names of the lawyers and barristers involved, is very unlikely to be true.
Paying 1400 euros to a cold caller who claims to be involved in a court case and out of the blue offers to join you in, is even more suspicious.
