Law firms, who call out of the blue and seem to have all your details before you even open your mouth, are not really in our good books. Pena Ferreira seems to be one of those.
They cold call, and not only have they all your details, they also know about all the frauds you suffered before.
The good news is, that Pena Ferreira knows all this because they have been appointed by the Spanish courts to contact victims like you and notify them that a court case has taken place.
A court case where you as a consumer/victim apparently were included, but you never knew about.
But who cares? Especially when you hear the result, a stunning amount of over €100.000 has been awarded and you just need to supply your bank account details to receive this early Christmas present.
Unfortunately when they try to transfer you the money, the bank of Spain explains to Pena Ferreira that in order to do this they need the NIE (Foreigner ID number) registration of the account holder.
Strange Pena Ferreira did not know this previously as they seem to have been dealing with many victims like you already and all of them received their pay out.
But not to worried, because Pena Ferreira can arrange an NIE straight away.
If you pay them €3850 the NIE number registration will be processed and you can expect the pay out in no time.
The money for the NIE number has to be paid into an Escrow Account in the name of a Spanish individual apparently connected to the court.
Research has shown that there is no such company as Pena Ferreira in Spain and certainly not on the address they claim to be based: Calle Mesonero Romanos 69, 28013 Madrid
Their telephone number is a Spanish mobile +34 603 250 424
They did go through the trouble of setting up a website in August this year which is http://www.penaferreira.com
Obviously we recommend being extremely cautious when speaking to anybody who claims to be working for the Law Firm Pena Ferreira as you don’t really know where your details will end up!
And you should NEVER pay a company who calls with stories as described above!
