Cold caller Areiospagos is contacting timeshare consumers who have been defrauded in the past by dubious companies selling discount travel club memberships or bogus timeshare resale companies etc.
The fact is that the caller from this Areiospagos knows about the fraud the victims suffered, something that is not really “public knowledge”.
Areiospagos claims now that the Court of Athens has taken action against the fraudulent company and has seized all the assets. These assets are supposedly used top ay back the victims.
Areios pagos is appointed as the intermediary and are contacting the victims to make sure they get their money back apart from a substantial compensation as well.
In order to claim the money back, the consumer is presented with different options. The consumer can chose to go to Athens in person and claim the money directly with the help of an interpreter, but not really knowing how much time you will need to get this sorted.
Or…get Areiospagos to help out here, for a fee, and they will do all the paperwork and claim at the court.
Telephone number of this kind person from Areiospagos is a Greek mobile 0030 695 511 7597
The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be aware that this is a SCAM!
There is no such thing as court cases in Greece against companies that acted in Spain or UK, and certainly is there no money awarded to anyone and to be paid out just like that with a simple telephone call and paying the fees.
It is not the first time there are supposed calls coming from “Greece” with very similar stories.
We have seen a company called Minfin-gr or the so-called Court of Cassatio and we also heard of numerous consumers receiving Telephone calls “directly” from the Court of Athens.
Don’t let them blind you with promises of substantial pay backs, and please do not pay them a penny!
If you have received a call from Greece already, being is Areiospagos, Minfin-gr, Court of Cassatio or Court of Athens, please do let us know.

had several phone calls from Maria Popadopalis on private number and saw that the email went into Junk email folder the email address I was given was email@example.com. “Maria” sounded very convinced but the scheme is frankly ridculous. I expect my email and timeshare details have been passed on
Beware Maria Popadopalis from Hellenic Ministry of Finance firstname.lastname@example.org
THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!!!! She has phoned me three times and is now in court supposedly representing me. THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!
We trust this email finds you well.
You are receiving this email in respect of the recent case heard in our illustrious Supreme Court of Cassation, Areios Pagos.
Your case was heard here as a part of a large “Class Action Lawsuit” against various different opportunist entities alike whom chose to unlawfully, deceive their unsuspecting clients.
This case was originally heard in another European member state where the initial crime took place, unfortunately these unscrupulous entities had moved all assets out of the original member state, therefore no compensation was available to recompense the victims. The tenacity of the lawyer whom worked on your behalf eventually found a link to several newly formed entities here in the Hellenic Republic. These entities were formed with the sole purpose to both safeguard and launder the funds from the original crime.
You will be aware that you will have administrative obligations that are outstanding here in the Hellenic Republic. You have been allocated an English speaking representative to further assist you with this.
Should you require any further assistance, then please do not hesitate to contact your representative on +30 694 637 1105.
How do they find out our details??????? I am blocking their number.
Had a call again from the court of Athens. I told them about you and I got an answer Back, saying there was no truth in what you say. Please help I’m so confused!!!!!
If you have difficulties with knowing who to believe, it might be an idea to contact the Greek Embassy in London and ask them if this could be true.
They will reconfirm to you that Greek courthouses do not cold call and do not aks for money that needs to be paid by Money gram or Western Union.
Other consumers also contacted the Embassy so we think they will know straight away that you are referring to this scam.
Hi. Had a phone call from the court of Athens today. A women called Isabelle Fal……. can’t remember her surname. Saying we have money owed to us in Athens which is going through court. To myself it sounds just like the ministry of justice in Spain, who conned is out of four and a half thousand pounds. I hope this will help others. Many thanks
