A new caller on the list. On the list of dubious companies that is, and under the name of Despacho Tarancon.
This gentleman says he has a lawyer’s office in Madrid. According to the person calling from Despacho Tarancon this law firm has years of experience in the field of timeshare and related activities.
They have therefor insight into the database of “registered timeshare owners”. This database is not known to anyone, but obviously it sounds credible when you are cold called and you wonder where he or she found your information.
The task of Despacho Tarancon is to help timeshare owners who have been defrauded by impostors and help these consumers / victims to recover funds. This is done in the following manner:
They shall compile a file on the basis of the information submitted by the interested parties; then they consider the case and decide if there is a possibility to recover funds; if so, the file is submitted to the authorized court.
Coincidentally everyone always has a chance to recover money. And it goes surprisingly quick as well as within a few weeks everything has been processed by the courts and miraculously the consumers will be paid a substantial amount of money.
The amount allocated is from then on in a fiduciary bank account of the court in the name of the beneficiary and cannot be touched. The fees for Despacho Tarancon are paid directly by the court. But there are other court and administration fees that need to be settled first and cannot be deducted from the awarded amount.
The “catch” in these set-ups is not always easy to discover but because the above is not the first time we hear this, we know what will happen.
Consumers indeed get the “confirmation” that the court has made a positive statement. And sometimes there is also another “copy” of the bank account where the money is waiting until the consumers satisfies the invoice for the court and administration fees.
Once consumers pay these costs via a bank transfer all of a sudden all kinds of tax bills surface, expenses for registration numbers. You name it; there is no end to the payment requests.
Research has shown that there are no lawyer’s offices under the name Despacho Tarancon, and no lawyer is registered in Spain with this name.
The address in Madrid is supposedly the Calle de Sor Angela de la Cruz 48, 28020 Madrid, but this is untraceable and he is calling from a mobile number (0034) 603 342 888
The website itself is www.despachotarancon.com
All in all this supposed law firm is certainly not to be trusted and we strongly advise not to disclose any payments to these people.
There are no lawyers who called Despacho Tarancon and there are no lawsuits done by this office.
