Juzgados de Malaga, the fake Spanish Courthouse cold calling from a UK number.

Sometimes you just wonder how certain dubious callers think they can get away with everything.

Latest one being the “Juzgados de Malaga” pretending to be the Courthouse in Malaga.

A Mr. Russell Edwards among others cold calls timeshare consumers who have been defrauded by dubious resale companies in the past and claims to have an official notification from the judge regarding the frauds.

After the initial call an email is received from informacion@juzgadosdemalaga.com with the following text:

************

Dear Mr and Mrs  XXXX

Further to our telephone conversation today please find the summary confirmation below.

Translation of notification:

‘The Malaga Court, Calle Fiscal Luis Portero Garcia, 0, 29010 Málaga, Spain, wish to supply you with information regarding a compensation claim from the director of the company “Keable Consultants, European Finance Solutions, EFS, Excalibur, Level 9 Resolutions SL, Sun Travel International, Half moon Holdings, Principle Travel, Simple Times Sales, Freewall Solutions, End Vacation, Continental Connects, Incentive Leisure Group, Club Class, Pueblo Evita, Fairways.

The document states that the director of aforementioned companies has been found guilty of fraud and money laundering in Europe.

The Judge at the hearing ruled that all remaining funds in accounts linked with aforementioned company’s are to be divided equally amongst claimants.

In the case of Mr & Mrs XXXXX a total of £22,563 is due to be remitted.

As discussed, issues surrounding money laundering problems in Spain mean that amounts over €10,000 are to be checked for money laundering and fraud purposes.

Having run all checks against your payment it has been approved as it has been classed as a ‘compensation claim’ and will be sent directly to you from the courts.

Spanish tax laws dictate that amounts greater than €10,000 relating to compensation payments are subject to a tax payment which must be paid in advance of authorization being granted to release your funds.

Upon receipt of funds we will apply for the necessary authorization on your behalf, this is a formality after which you have two options to receive your payment, either a bank transfer or cheque.

Please not should you decide to proceed and claim your compensation you will no longer be able to take any further legal action against the aforementioned companies.

Should you require any further clarification you may reply to this email with any questions you have, if proceeding you will need to inform us in advance which payment method you prefer.

May we also inform you that if you require any advise with regards to other companies or timeshare please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will try to help you as much as possible.

Kind Regards

Administración

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A SCAM!

On top of this they call from a UK number and pretend for the consumer to pay around £900 into a UK bank account.

Right, Spanish taxes for a Spanish court claim paid into the account at a UK bank and in Pounds…

Do not fall for this!

There are no compensation pay outs, no judge is setting aside money for victims of scams that don’t even know they are included in a court claim, and no Spanish court houses are directly contacting the victims by telephone!

If you spoke to this Juzgados de Malaga, do let us know and send us all the feedback you have.
