Beware of the fake Lopez and Martinez Abogados!


Cold calls from Fake lawyers’ offices seem to be rather popular.

The number of cold calls we hear about from people pretending to be lawyers of employees working at lawyers’ offices, is terrible.

For some reason, they do sound quite plausible, and consumers seem to fall for these calls.

What is certainly very strange is that a lawyer would be cold calling, because this is obviously in conflict with the GDPR regulations.

Latest cold caller is using the name of Lopez and Martinez Abogados. The person calling is a Michael French, and he explains that the consumer has been awarded money through the Spanish courts.

But unfortunately, the money is under an “embargo” and to release this, the consumer will have to pay the relevant taxes.

Phillip King from the Malaga Law Courts (the Expats Department) will contact the consumer during the week to explain how the embargo can be lifted.

This is all lies and a big scam.

There is no money awarded and no people are calling out of the blue from a courthouse to explain about money, embargo’s and how to pay fees to get the compensation pay out.

The people from Lopez and Martinez Abogados, and the Expat Department at Malaga Law Courts are using the following telephone numbers:

0034 672 530 9** and 0034 602 581 6**, both Spanish mobile numbers.

If you have been contacted by the sweet-talking employee from Lopez and Martinez Abogados or by the Expat Department at the Malaga Court, please do let us know.
