Beware of cold caller (fake) Larios Cinco Abogados

A new cold caller with fake stories about awarded money has been brought to our attention and they are using the name of Larios Cinco.

The initial cold call is received from a man called Daniel Fuller, who presents himself as an agent from the company Larios Cinco.

This man is calling from a Spanish mobile number 0034 672530964

He explains that the purpose of the call is to make the consumer aware that he has been awarded a substantial amount of money following some ruling in the Malaga High court.

Unknown to the consumer, he seemed to be part of a “Class Action” against a holiday company with over hundreds of other victims/claimants and the court awarded each victim around 15.000 Pounds.

In order to get the awarded money transferred to the consumers’ account, the agent from Larios Cinco asks if the consumer has received the documents that he needs to sign.

If the consumer did not receive anything, Mr. Fuller assures they will send out another email with the electronic version of the documents.

But the agent of Larios Cinco also explains another issue which needs to be solved.

Apparently, there is an Embargo by the Spanish Government, and the consumer needs to call the Malaga High court on another Spanish mobile number 0034 611351717 and ask for Peter. This Peter works in the “Expat” office and he will explain everything about the “Embargo”

The story doesn’t finish there as more calls are received by the consumers from the same set up. A Mr. Robert Cook also contacts the consumer with a story about being the head of accounts and the person who will verify the documents and organize the money transfer.

Although after all these calls and overload of information they haven’t asked for any money yet, it certainly becomes clear where this is leading to.

Keeping in mind that there are no Class Actions at all in Spain and certainly nobody gets money awarded just out of the blue without even knowing they were part of a court claim.

That is ridiculous!

So, for as much as they want to make this appear a genuine story with all kinds of employees involved in the pay out to the consumer, don’t let these calls blind you!

If you receive calls from Larios Cinco or any cold call about awarded money you were not expecting, please let us know.
