Beware of the latest cold caller Newgate Legals!

A new cold caller has been spotted by the name of Newgate Legals.

When you investigate the way of working of Newgate Legals, and who they work with, you get the funny feeling these people are not new at all, and it probably is another name change.

Let’s start from the beginning.

Newgate Legal cold calls from a UK Landline 019135921** but they are not based in the UK at all.

They are supposedly based in Mallorca.

 

As with all cold calling “claims companies” they assure the consumer they stand a good change for a claim and obtaining a substantial amount through the Spanish courts. Never mind the consumer relinquished years ago or stopped paying fees, never mind if they bought prior to 1999, everybody has a claim with Newgate Legals.

Although they use the word “Legals” in their name, they apparently are not really “Legals” as for the legal part of the services they use another company; Tranquilitas Legal Consultancy in Mallorca.

Oh dear…yes!

What more can we say about Tranquilitas that we haven’t said before?

It also looks seems that many of the consumers that are approached, have paid to another claims company before. They paid Meridian litigation Advisors.

Does this not sound like Aegis Direct or maybe Arbitration Consultants? And what about J Foster Associates?

Newgate Legals is a registered company in Spain.

They were registered at the Spanish Companies House in March 2021. That is only 6 months ago. How many claims can they have done so far, taking in mind claims take up to 2 or even 3 years to go to court in Spain?

The nature of business is registered as “business consultants” a vague description which should not be necessary if you are a legal company.

And another detail is that the administrator of Newgate Legal is a Mr. Dragos Tanase who is also the administrator of the company J Foster Associates.

All this information is available on the internet.

Contact details for Newgate Legals are email: info@newgatelegals.com , Spanish number +34 871 18 08 ** and the above-mentioned telephone number in the UK..

It doesn’t come as a surprise that we are now receiving inquiries about cold calls from Newgate Legals, and the inquiries of Arbitration Consultants have stopped. Same thing happened before with Aegis Direct and J Foster Associates.

Same people or not, the offer is the same and we certainly do not recommend hand over any money to any of these companies.

They “free advice” in a zoom meeting quickly converts into paying a deposit at the end of the meeting of close to 2000 euros and a balance of another 7000 euros approximately.

Please remember, if you relinquished your timeshare, you will NOT be chased by the resort or any other company that has “taken over”.

If you have doubts, call the resort! They are the only ones who can give you the status of your membership.

Legal companies do NOT cold call. Neither do they work with other companies who do the cold calls for them!

If you have been approached by Newgate Legals, please let us know.
