Oh yes, if we hadn’t had enough already, we have another name added to the endless list of cold calling fake lawyers offices based in Tenerife. This time the have taken the name of Amador Galeca.
The website www.amadorgaleca.com states this supposed lawyer has been around for at least 25 years, which is really surprising for somebody who’s name cannot be found anywhere, and neither a company registered under this name.
They cold call Timeshare consumers who were defrauded before and explain there is an upcoming court claim where the consumer can join in and claim their money back and compensation as well.
There are no charges to do this, so it all seems very plausible at the beginning.
The real “game” actually starts when the consumer is notified a settlement has been offered or there has been money awarded, and in order to go ahead there are fees to be paid.
Notaries, procurators, translations, you name it they need money for it!
A range of fake documents is produced by email to back up their lies.
For example tax documents often taken from the Internet and although in Spanish they are really from South American tax offices.
All the fees have to be paid by bank transfer, and again there seems to be a wide range of “procurators and notaries” with all kind of “exotic names”.
Contact details for Amador Galeca are:
Office address: Calle de V. Sanz, N14, 16, 38002, Santa Cruz De Tenerife
Freephone: 0800 802 1223
As with most of these fake companies, there doesn’t seem to be an end to the requests for money.
Only when the consumer has paid over and over again and there is no progress at all and certainly the supposed awarded money has not been received…they realise it is a scam.
Please don’t let it go that far!
