Beware of the cold calls from a company Abastar Concursales (fake) about your Cashback Certificate.


This cold caller was detected early September 2017.

Abastar Concursales (fake) seems to be approaching consumers who are holding a Cashback Europe Certificate.

Although the consumer claimed the money from the certificate and didn’t receive anything, Abastar Concursales as the liquidators of Cashback Europe state they can now claim again.

The consumers, as creditors of Cash Back Europe, just need to fill in some claim forms and select if they want to be paid out by bank transfer or cheque.

Once they submit the forms, Abastar Concursales will process the claim and get the money to the consumer.

But after some days the consumer receives a letter from Abastar Concursales stating the bank are querying payment as it is over 1,300 euros.It turns out that the consumer needs to pay Spanish tax and is offered 3 different options to do so.

Of course the options of travelling to Spain, queuing up at a Tax Office for hours, or appointing a lawyer who needs to get it all translated and will ask for silly money…are not really the options one would look for.

So the offer from Abastar Concursales to fill out the necessary forms and appoint a fiscal who will sent a tax bill to pay tax office direct, sounds like the best choice.

Don’t you think so?

The consumer is sent all kinds of documentation with their names and numbers, and a name of the supposed fiscal, a Mrs. Elizabeth May Helme who declares to be the legal representative of the consumer.

Although it all looks very official, we can assure you that the forms are downloaded copies of the Internet, filled in without making any sense!

The consumer is asked for around 3000 euros of “tax”, to be transferred into a bank account without an account holder’s name.

Contact details of this FAKE Company are:

Telephone: 0034 95 165 0497 Fax 0034 95 165 0498 and email

Please be careful with cold callers. We cannot stress enough that you do NOT know who is on the other end of the line.

So refrain from providing them any further information about you, do not fill in any forms with personal details, and do NOT pay any money!

If you already received a call or letter from Abastar Concursales (fake) about claiming your money from the Cashback certificate, please give us your feedback.
