A new cold caller on the blog, by the name of Riigikohus. This is Estonian for “Supreme Court”.
The cold caller, an English speaking person by the name of Julian Pike, claims to be associated with the British Embassy in Estonia. His story is that there is money waiting in an Estonian bank, which belonged to a gang of fraudsters who were arrested last year on the Costa del Sol in Spain.
These fraudsters had been cheating Timeshare owners out of their hard earned money through several different bogus companies, and apart from all the assets seized in Spain, they also traced money all the way through to Estonia.
Now exactly the money in Estonia, is the money awarded to the victim.
As Julian pike explains, there has been a Court Judgment, which was issued on 8/11/2015. And in this Judgement the court, theRiigikohus, has awarded 65,258€ / £44,200 to the timeshare consumer. Wow! Wouldn’t that be nice?
But…yes… you guess it right there is a “small” but…
There are court fees that need to be met by each individual recipient prior to the court releasing these funds. This fee will be returned to the consumer though and will automatically be added to the award he receives via bank transfer.
The court cost is £975.00 (1360.00€), which must be sent to the appointed court representative via bank transfer.
Now who would say no to paying £975 if it is in exchange to receiving £44,200?
Julian Pike, the British Liaison Officer (FCO) send his emails from email@example.com, which does not really look like an official address…
As far as we know, there is NO money awarded in Estonia, Spain, UK or any country in the world, to victims who are not even aware they were on the books of the police and court houses, and certainly if ever there would be money…there is no fee to be paid to a supposed court officer by bank transfer and into a personal bank account.
Please be extremely careful when receiving calls like this. Always be on your guard and remember that these people are “professionals” in what they do. Don’t provide any new information to them, and always check the facts. Ask for proof by email of what they are saying and NEVER, EVER pay any money into personal bank accounts or provide credit card details.
