A company that seems to be active right now, is Gallardo Abogados, supposedly based in Madrid.
Timeshare consumers are receiving an initial call from a man called Daniel Burton using a Spanish mobile number 00346041**426 or Michael Parker with telephone 0034634**3237
These representatives of Gallardo Abogados explain to the consumer that a large amount of awarded money is waiting for them in the high court in Malaga.
This money can be transferred into the consumers’ bank account as soon as a substantial court fee is paid.
This payment of the fee needs to be arranged directly with a court official called Peter Greenberg aka Peter Jenkins.
The consumer is asked to call Mr. Greenberg directly on another Spanish mobile 0034611**3622
No documents are presented, no proof of anything they say about awarded money, court claims that have been successful, nothing.
Gallardo Abogados has a domain name www.gallardo-abogados.com but there is no actual web. This domain was registered in August 2020, so only a couple of months ago.
Daniel Burton does have an associated email address: Daniel.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that this is a fake company. Although there are several lawyer’s companies in Spain with the name Gallardo, none of them have anything to do with the above story of awarded money out of the blue.
Anything done in a Spanish court would be backed up with the official documentation of the court ruling, duly translated, and send to the claimant by registered post or through the appointed lawyer. You don’t just get phone calls from a mobile to notify you that you just won a court claim and thousands of euros have been awarded to you…
If you received a phone call as well from any person claiming to be working on behalf of Gallardo Abogados, please let us know.
Never trust a cold caller!
