The saga of the fake lawyers continues, and the company we would like to bring to your attention today is one called Sanchez Abogados.
Sanchez Abogados claims to have offices in SEVILLE, MALAGA, and BRISTOL
Consumers are bombarded with emails from this self-proclaimed “Legal Services & Reclaim Specialists”
The representative from the offices of Sanchez Abogados seems to know in all detail about the dealings the consumer had with Eze group, when they purchased the Eze membership and how much they paid for this.
All very sensible data that certainly should not be in hands of dubious companies!
The good news is that the consumer will be receiving a compensation payout, thanks to a claim against Eze Group in the Spanish courts.
Never mind the consumer knew nothing about this, after all, who doesn’t want to receive thousands of pounds back in their accounts?
The consumer will have to pay a “Surety Deposit”.
This is explained in the follow-up email they receive from Sanchez Abogados. The text reads as follows:
“We do ask all client’s to make a refundable “surety deposit” of £179 (per claim) at the start of the process and we refund this to you in full after 7 days @ completion
I’m not sure if you are aware that all claim funds are sent directly to (you) the client with the Eze Group case.. funds do not come to us first.
So when we take on a client on a “no win no fee’ basis we don’t get paid until the client has received the claim funds and the cheque has cleared in their bank account.
I won’t go into detail but we did have some problems with a few people over this some time ago…Basically, the management is hoping the surety payment may deter this sort of thing from happening again and encourage people to stay around for the duration of their claim.
Please note: This is the only payment you will be asked to make throughout the whole process and as I said it is refunded to you after 7 days.”
Please note that this is all fake, there is no money waiting anywhere to be paid out, and it doesn’t look like you are going to receive the awarded money or the refund of the “surety deposit”.
Emails are sent out from a Gmail account which doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence either and is certainly not a normal procedure for “genuine” lawyers with so many offices.
The email address is email@example.com
There is no office address in the email, no telephone number, nothing!
The names used to sign the emails are Maria Santos and Anna Martinez.
Please note that these emails are completely fake.
If you received anything from Sanchez Abogados about money awarded from claims against Eze group or any other holiday club, please let us know.
