On the cold caller lists we have names that pop up each month or every now and then, but there don’t seem to be a very “active” call campaign going on.
That is the case with the calls received by timeshare consumers from a lady called “Linda Kirk” claiming to be working for the Malaga Magistrates Court as a translator,
Linda from the High Court in Malaga reminds the consumer that he has an outstanding claim for compensation. It relates to a judgement from a couple of years ago in which a large number of companies were prosecuted and fined to provide the compensation.
The amount the consumers are due are around the £10,000 and all the consumer has to do is pay a court appointed Spanish Lawyer 10% (approx. 1000 Euros) via Bank Transfer and the money will be released.
The contact phone number from Linda is a Spanish mobile: 0034 602 699 804 but other numbers have been mentioned to us as well, a UK number 07405 247 254 and another Spanish mobile 0034 603 221 8610
Linda isn’t very keen on emailing, and almost all the information she provides is given over the phone.
The money due for the lawyer needs to be paid into a bank account in the name of an individual who apparently holds an account in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol.

Although we don’t have that much information about the above bogus set up, it is important to warn all consumers about them, and certainly be extremely careful when you receive this call from the “High Court”
If you received a call from Linda the translator of the court in Malaga or anybody else claiming to be working in the court and sending off money to consumers, please let us know.
