A new cold calling (dubious) lawyers office has been brought to our attention under the name of Sanchez Bendaoud.
This company, claiming to be a solicitors office based in Seville, contacts Timeshare consumers who previously paid money into dubious holiday clubs.
In their phone call they explain the consumer that a court case will take place against these companies and that they will be able to claim back all the money paid and even more in compensation.
Sanchez Bendaoud will represent the consumer in the court case, and all the consumer needs to do is sign a document sent by email where they “grant” authorization to Sanchez Bendaoud to do this and that they agree with the sum of money to be claimed.
The estimate for the claim is rather substantial and goes beyond the 30.000 euros.
All the timeshare consumer needs to do to get the process going is pay a 10% over the money awarded as a juridical and administration fee upfront.
Indeed Sanchez Bendaoud is looking for a payment of around 3000 euros upfront, but they assure this is more than a normal procedure and the consumer has the claim guaranteed! His pay out will be around 5 to 8 days after paying this “juridical” fee by bank transfer to an account of an individual.
The website from this supposed lawyer’s office in Seville called J.C. Sanchez & M.L. Bendaoud – http://www.sanchezbendaoud.com/ was only registered in January 2015
Checking the Spanish Companies House there is no such company registered at all, neither can these lawyers been found in the Lawyers Bar Society registration in Spain.
The address used C/Recaredo 4, 41003 Sevilla does not correspond with the address of any lawyers office. And they use a mobile telephone for contact (34) 603 208 427 without any landline. Email address firstname.lastname@example.org
We certainly do NOT recommend this company, as there is no evidence at all that they actually exist!
Please be very careful when you are contacted by somebody claiming to be from Sanchez Bendaoud and do not provide them with any further personal details, as you never know where these might end up!
If you have already received a call from 0034 603208427 then please let us know.
