Watch out for the cold call of Poveda Lawyers from Tenerife

Captura de pantalla 2015-07-22 a la(s) 13.02.07

Poveda Lawyers from Tenerife have started, as it seems a cold call campaign recently to Timeshare Owners who have been duped in the past.

Not only hold Poveda Lawyers the contact details of the Timeshare Owners, they also know exactly who had defrauded them and how much. Information that is not really available just to anyone or could be shared without the permission of the actual fraud victim.

Poveda Lawyers claim there is an upcoming court case in the Arona Court house in Tenerife against the company that defrauded the timeshare owner, and he can join a group of affected by the same in this court case.

Not only can they recover the money paid to the fraudsters but also compensation. All this they will do on a no win no fee basis, so nothing to lose for the Timeshare owner.

Once the Timeshare owner shows interest, Poveda Lawyers will get back by email with different kind of documents. The first one with all kinds of “credibility” information about who they are, where they are and how long they have been established, etc. Through research we have found though that the names mentioned on this document of the lawyers, including Mr Javier Sanchez Poveda, are not known to be lawyers in Tenerife and neither do the Company Registration codes coincide with a registered company.

The following communication is to inform the consumer that the case has taken place and a settlement has been offered. The amount for the settlement is normally a very low amount, and not really worth pursuing. But Poveda Lawyers insist the consumer should not take the settlement and continue the case. But as “Spanish law” established, once a settlement has been offered, the court case is taken to another level and certain costs are involved.

This is where the “real” story begins and all kinds of charges will follow, to be paid by bank transfer and in the names of individuals who are classed as “notaries”.

Please note that there is no such thing as an upcoming court case in the Arona courts, and neither is there a company called Poveda Lawyers handling your case without you even knowing of their existence!

Contact details for Poveda Lawyers are telephone 0034 922986777 and email

They also have a website which they claim was set up in 1989 but in reality was only registered in February 2015.

This website lacks of all company details, privacy statement and other legal information which is the least you could expect for a website of a “long established” lawyers company. Neither do they mention their address or other contact details.

Please be extremely careful when you receive a call from Poveda Lawyers from +34 922 986 777 and do not provide them any further personal details or copies of paperwork, as you never know where this will end up.

If you do receive such call, please let us know and write to us by email or place a comment on this blog
