A new cold caller has been brought to our attention, and this time a very tricky one indeed! The name of the company given is Fernandez Navarro or Law Abogados from Fuengirola in Spain, and this happens to be the name of a genuine lawyers office on the Costa del Sol.
But, there are though signs that help to differentiate and spot which one is the Bogus Company who seems to be after the money of the consumers, once again.
The agent from this fake Fernandez Navarro, cold calls and claims to be working on behalf of this lawyers office who is holding money in their accounts to be paid out to Reclaim certificate holders.
The agent asks for copies of the paperwork in order to verify that everything is correct.
After the consumer submits this paperwork by email, he receives a follow up mail with different documents attached.
In these documents there is an explanation about Spanish taxes and the consumer is notified that if he wants to receive his share from the funds he needs to pay first the taxes due.
As explained by this FAKE Fernandez Navarro, the money has been deposited with the Spanish bank and in order to release this the consumer needs a special registry number.
The taxes are calculated to be around the £2000 and as the consumer does not have this “registry” number either, the agent from Fernandez Navarro will kindly process the request for another €350
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A SCAM!
DO NOT PAY ANY MONEY TO THIS COMPANY!
TELEPHONE 0034 951 650 465
Names used by the agents are Rachel Arnold and Isabel Gilbert, which will obviously change after this publication, but just in case you already spoke to these “lovely” ladies!
