If it isn’t the Spanish court or tax offices, it is the Portuguese one they use for cold calling lately. Lisboa Tribunais, the Portuguese Supreme Court cold calling Timeshare consumers who were defrauded by dubious companies.
Can you believe that?
Well this is what is happening. An English person claiming to be working at the Portuguese Courts cold calls Timeshare consumers. This person knows all about previous dealings with dubious companies from the Timeshare owner, and the good news is that these companies have been closed down.
But as they moved to Portugal, the police intervention took place there and also the seized assets such as bank accounts are in Portugal.
In order to claim back the money that was lost in the fraud, the Timeshare consumer will have to pay a tax charge and notary fees to Lisboa Tribunais. An amount of £900 is requested and needs to be paid by Western Union (!) in the name of an individual.
Please note that this is NOT TRUE! Do NOT PAY them a penny!
There is no such thing as people calling from the Lisboa Tribunais, companies moved to Portugal and raided there, or money waiting in Portuguese bank accounts!
Contact details for this Lisboa Tribunais are the following:
Aníbal Cavaco Silva, Presidente do Supremo Tribunal de Justiça, Praça do Comércio, 1149-012 Lisboa, Portugal.
If you have been contacted by anybody telling you that they are calling on behalf of Notaries, court Houses or Supreme Courts, in Spain or Portugal, then please do let us know.
