We have seen cold callers using the names of existing banks and pretending to be calling from the branches in Spain, to inform consumers about money held in an account to be paid out to them.
But now we have a bank that doesn’t really exist as such, but cold calls are received and the pitch is more less the same.
Esol Bank claims to have money waiting in their accounts, paid out by the Spanish central bank, awarded to victims of frauds related to timeshare.
Esol bank is appointed to contact the victims and liaise with them for the pay out of thousands and thousands of pounds
Contact details of this “new” bank are:
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org – Supposed company registration: CIF: B-93430817
Centro Commercial Los Jarales,Local 1,Suite 122,Mijas Costa,Malaga,Spain 29649
Telephone: 0034 910 051 187
Once the consumer shows their interest in getting this money from the bank, they are diverted to the “lawyer” of the bank.
This lawyer will charge closet o 2000 euros legal fees for the process of refunding the closet o 10 thousand pounds to the consumer.
The legal fees need to be paid into the personal account of this lawyer.
Please note that this is a scam! The ESOL Bank does not exist, there is no money awarded to the victims by the Spanish courts or government, and there is no such thing as paying legal fees for a refund into the personal bank account of somebody claiming to be a lawyer!
If Esol Bank has contacted you from 0034910051187 or any other “bank” in Spain for a refund, then please let us know.
