Beware of the cold calling and fake lawyer Gonzalo Calderon!

A new name has popped up in the list of cold calling fake lawyers and this is Gonzalo Calderon.

For the moment it looks like they are only approaching Dutch speaking Timeshare owners but of course they will probably extend the calls to other nationalities.

On the cold call the employee of this fake lawyers office explains they are a specialist legal office doing claims against timeshare companies.

Gonzalo Calderon works on a No Win No Fee basis, so if the case is lost the consumer doesn’t owe them anything. But if the case is won, there is a 10% fee over the awarded amount.

They explain straight away that this 10% is due when the consumer receives the written confirmation of the court ruling.

The catch is in the following sentence of their email: “The amount allocated to you will be transferred to a fiduciary bank account of the court, and the fees due cannot be deducted from the awarded amount…”

Oh yeah right, so you get a letter / document pretending to be the court ruling, telling you there is an amount awarded to you, and then you are expected to send the 10% over this amount first before receiving anything at all?

Please note that the website of Gonzalo Calderon http://www.gonzalocalderon.com was registered only 1 month ago (August 2017).

There is no company registration number on the web, and no privacy statement. Surely very strange for a company claiming to be “legal” professionals!

  • Contact details are: Address:
  • Calle Fernandez y González, 2, 41001, Sevilla, España
  • Tel: +34 603 371 142 (This is a mobile)
  • Email: info@gonzalocalderon.com

Please be careful when receiving the call from this fake lawyer called Gonzalo Calderon!
