A very dubious company by the name of Martin and Perez has appeared on the scene since September this year.
Timeshare consumers who had dealings with dubious companies in the past and unfortunately paid them for claims that never took place are now contacted by the agent from Martin and Perez.
This representative from Martin & Perez asks the client why they haven’t replied to the Madrid Court Summary statement send out by the Madrid court in order to confirm the acceptance of the settlement.
Obviously, the consumer never received this Summary, and it turns out that they have been awarded a substantial amount of money (around 30k).
All the consumer needs to do is fill in some forms where they sign for acceptance of the settlement, and the lawyers from Martin and Perez will do the rest.
The consumer is provided with the court settlement, which surprisingly is in English, and the forms they need to fill in.
This email is signed by Anna Mansell but of course, they could have been using other names as well.
In this same email where Martin and Perez kindly send out these documents, they also explain that as per the agreement the consumer signed with the previous companies, there is a commission to be paid of 10% over the awarded money.
And the consumer is to be expected to pay this before they can receive the settlement money.
Their website https://martinandperez.com/ looks quite elaborated with a lot of information and beautiful pictures, but it lacks all company information, there is no Spanish Companies House registration, no full names of the lawyers and their bar registration numbers, nothing.
Surprisingly as well is that this website for this alleged successful lawyer’s company is only available in English.
Contact details are:
Telephone: 0034 911 231 165
On the (fake) court summary they also mention a telephone number: 0034 911 231 151
If you have been approached by a representative of Martin and Perez about this court summary and asking you for a fee, please do let us know.
Do NOT pay any money to this company and make sure you don’t provide them with more personal details than they have already on you.
