Did you receive an invoice through Financiera Oficial ES for outstanding legal fees?

Several consumers have been receiving dubious calls from a person claiming to be working in a Notary in Madrid.

The person calling is Anna Hernandez and she explains to the Consumer that he has have awarded £27,000 from a court in Madrid. In the first call, Anna Hernandez does not ask for money, but she does need some kind of ID from the consumer, so she kindly asks to forward copy of Passport or Driving License.

But after receipt of the copies, all of the sudden there seems to be a charge if the consumer wants to proceed. A 10%over the awarded money, in concept of outstanding legal fees.

The legal fee’s cover court costs, all work carried out by the lawyers, translation of documents, paralegal work and notary involvement.

Still, taking into account the consumer is about to receive £27,000, why not pay the £2,700?  Well, at least this is what the fraudsters pretend the consumer will do!

The invoice received comes in the name of Financiera Oficial ES, which is an entity that does not exist at all.

The address on the invoice is of the courts in Madrid.

The amount to pay is in Pound Sterling, which makes no sense in a Euro country such as Spain.

But to take all doubts away, the caller assures the consumer that this fee will be reimbursed from the guilty parties and this will take between 6-8 weeks to process.

But the actual awarded amount will be paid out in 72 hours after receiving the payment of the fees.

Somebody from the accounts department will be contacting the consumer in order to arrange for the payment to be done.

Yeah, right!

Please do not fall for this as we can assure you that you won’t get any payment after 72 hours, neither will you get the paid fees back after 6-8 weeks!

If you have been contacted by Anna Hernandez or anybody else claiming they are from a Notary in Madrid or Financiera official ES, please let us know.
