Transparency failure. These cold callers claimed to represent the Spanish courts and other official entities but were clearly attempting to defraud timeshare owners.
THIS CONSTITUTES MISREPRESENTATION WHICH IS UNLAWFUL.
Consumers have reported receiving unsolicited contact from this company. The caller claimed that a recent court case in Barcelona had ruled in their favour and that the court awarded sum was now available to the consumer. They were told to contact Litigation Services in Spain (tel. 0034 604 380684) to verify the case and then UK International Clearance Centre could clear the cheque and forward the funds. This type of contact is usually the start of an advance fee fraud scam so consumers should be extremely cautious when dealing with such claims.
This scammer has been cold calling consumers to inform them of a successful court case against Monster Travel Group. Initial contact was made by UK International Clearance Centre / Finance Clearance Centre / Thorndon Clearance Centre. They claimed that whilst the court case was successful, there had been a stop placed on the monies that should be awarded to the consumer.
The consumer was then contacted by somebody who claimed to work for the Spanish Courts (Juzgado 1a Instancia no 84 de Madrid). They informed them that the payment had been withheld because the beneficiary document "International documento de beneficiario" had been omitted from the case file. They requested a payment of approximately £2,450 for lawyer fees which would then make the full payment available for transfer.
The cold caller then asked for more money. They confirmed that the judicial side of proceedings had been completed successfully but there was now an outstanding tax payment that needed to be cleared. They claimed that once this was paid the Spanish Tax Agency (Agencia Tributaria) would lift the embargo on the bankers drafts and monies would be released in 5-7 days. A payment of approximately €3,129 was requested.
Another request for payment followed shortly afterwards. This time it was an invoice for the European Enforcement Order for the NIE. They claimed that this would enable the embargo on the payment to be lifted and the settlement to be released. This invoice for NIE Registration was claimed to be from the Audiencia Provincial Seccion 7a Penal.
Throughout this entire process the scammers had falsely claimed to represent the Spanish courts and other official entities. They displayed the logos and badges of these organisations without permission.
We are aware of many attempts by rogue businesses to defraud consumers by falsely claiming they can obtain refunds for Monster victims. Due to this we would advise extreme caution toward any company offering their services to you in this regard and advise NOT to pay any monies or enter into any agreements.
We would also advise you file a report with Action Fraud - https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/reporting-fraud-and-cyber-crime
If initial contact was unsolicited – a cold call or email or text out of the blue, it gives rise to concerns as to whether your data has been acquired and used legally. Unsolicited contact by phone, text or email is likely to be a breach of data protection laws and it is recommended that it is reported to the appropriate national data authority. In the UK, this is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as rogue businesses also often sell the information on to fraudsters.
