Legalion, the fake lawyers from Tenerife strike again

After all these years one would have hoped these people would be gone by now, but no, they are not gone and are still here!

This time they use the name Legalion, not to be mistaken with the genuine lawyer’s company in Madrid, the bogus one is based in Tenerife.

Always tricky when they use the same or similar name as a real one, as consumers try to do their homework and are still confused with the outcome.

The fake Legalion claims to be acting on behalf of the courts, where the consumer has been awarded money, but the amount is blocked in the account.

First the consumer is cold called with the good news about the awarded money. But then in the follow up email the consumer is made aware of the “slight” problem with the transfer of the awarded amount. The letter from the FAKE Legalion states the following:

“The Santa Cruz Court Office has been advised that you are now making payment the Brexit stamp fee, along with the 4% conversion rate, a standard fee put in place by all banks to allow the conversion of foreign currency into the designated UK bank account provided and of course the 21% IVA which as explained is a the standard taxation fee of mainland Spain. I hereby attach the relevant pay slip for you to kindly make payment of the total amount of 2,750 Euros, as soon as possible and contact us to inform that payment has been made. Once that stamping fee has cleared, our Lawyers will liaise with the Santa Cruz Court Instance No. 3 directly for the immediate release of your compensation to your nominated UK account without delay. “

The money they ask for is supposed to be paid into a bank account in the name of an individual.

The email is signed by Camillia Luis Rodigues posing as “Court Trustee

Other names used by the people contacting the consumers (victims) are Alistair White and Carla Montoya.

Contact details are telephone: 0034 822 689 ***

    I have just received a phone call, then email, from these people regarding Silverpoint, which we used to own, with the contact name of Carla Montoya. I am so glad that there is your website which I can consult to confirm that this is a scam as I thought. Thankyou for being here for people like me who are forever being pestered by these sca****s.
