In September 2016 we warned for the first time through this blog about a fraudulent set up called Minfin-gr, Court of Athens or the so-called Supreme Court of Cassation, Areios Pagos
Although they seem to keep a low activity, we have to insist that these fraudsters are still active and every now and then we do receive inquiries from consumers who are still in contact with this set up.
Over the past 18 months they have been using different names, telephone numbers and email addresses.
Their documents, always full of stamps and official logos, are becoming more and more elaborated, but are all FAKE.
The story of this bogus set up is that there was a court claim against the holiday club or Resale Company that took money from the consumer, but the claim was done in Greece as the money from the company was located in Greece.
A story that doesn’t seem to make sense at all, but for some reason with their apparent “professional” attitude on the phone and all fake elaborated official documents, there are consumers falling for this.
The consumer has been awarded money supposedly but needs to pay taxes, court fees, and whatever fee they come up with as long as the consumer keeps on paying.
Payments are requested through Money-Gram or Xpress Money in the name of the “officer” at the courthouse of Tax representative.
THIS IS A SCAM!
So far we have the following details on this fraudulent set up:
