Areios Pagos, old scam, new cold calls

With some companies we don’t have to be careful with using the word scam, as there is really no other word to describe them.

This happens with the fake company Areios Pagos and the Greek or Hellenic Court.

We posted a warning about them in 2017, but through the past years they keep on popping up and they keep on telling the same incredible story.

The article we posted back in 2017 you can read on the following link:

The story they keep on telling is about the money recovered in Greece from a fraudulent company in Spain who transferred the money they took from the consumer to Greece and now the Greek authorities have blocked the money and are paying this to the victims.

We are not sure how they are getting away with this ridiculous story, but we can only imagine they must be very convincing on the phone, and they seem to prey especially on elderly people who do not always have the tools to do their research.

The documents they send in their emails which are send from are full of stamps and official looking logos.

They also include a document in Greek and a supposed translation.

Please note that THIS IS A SCAM!

There is no such thing as recovered money and certainly not in Greece something you paid in Spain or the UK.

Areios Pagos also uses a “free-phone” number which is 08000418139

The emails are signed by Vasilis Axarlis.

Please do NOT pay these people!

If you received calls or emails from this fraud company Areios pagos, please let us know.
