Joint Returns Legal Consultants are as many consumers say a “persistent cold caller”
The person on the phone, identifying himself as Peter Sanchez, seems to have a lot of patience and is not taking a no for an answer.
Joint Returns Legal claims to be appointed by the High Court to inform consumers, victims of frauds about money awarded to them through the High Court.
Claims of close to £30,000 have been settled and the high Court is keen to pay the money to the victim, who so far seems to be completely unaware of their “luck”.
Peter Sanchez, after contacting the consumer by telephone, sends a confirmation email where he attaches all kinds of official looking documents with the header of the “Agencia Tributaria” which is the Spanish Tax Office.
Joint Returns Legal Consultants want to go ahead with transferring the money to the consumer but first the consumer will have to pay certain expenses made and outstanding fees such as an Embargo, Notary and Admin fees. The amount is £998.
This money has to be paid into a bank account under the name of an individual.

As Peter Sanchez explains, the money is being held by the Spanish Judiciary in the form of a banker’s draft and will be released subject to payment of the unpaid fees.
To back up all the statements the consumer also receives a letter from supposedly the BBVA Bank, who declares that the BBVA will IRREVOCABLY HONOUR AND GUARANTEE payment of any checks written by the “Gobierno De España” or Agencia Tributaria.
This letter is stamped and signed by a Notary with the name of Jose Miguel Perez
A rejection of this claim needs to be returned within 12 working days or the claim will be deemed acceptance, so they will pursue the consumer for the £998
Peter Sanchez does not cease his calls, and when the consumer expresses his doubts or simply is not interested in going ahead, he states the claim has already gone through and the consumer has to pay.
Please note there are no claims through the High Court, and neither is there any money held by the Spanish Tax offices or the High court to be paid out.
Do not send any personal information to this Peter Sanchez from Joint Returns Legal Consultants and certainly do NOT pay any money!
