    Gonzalez-Santiago law firm - yet another scam letter

    I see from a post below that this one likes the figure £8,750,000 - same amount my mother could claim owing to the death in a car crash in 2012 of a man who shared her surname, his wife and only son in Madrid !! The deceased 'relative' was supposed to be a construction engineer with a company in Madrid. The company exists but obviously I can find no trace of the supposed employee. I'd love to know where this sub-human got my mum's name from. She has dementia, so if she'd received this earlier in her illness she might well have fallen for it.

    Banesto Forex Bank

    Both me and my father got the same letter post marked from Spain saying we could share €14,320,000. We live in Toronto (Canada).

    The letter was well done generally, with only a few awkward phrases... no spelling mistakes and what looked like a real stamp at the bottom (but a fake watermark).

    There is no return address to look up. The phone number provided appears to be a cell phone. This is the header information:

    From The Desk of Francisco Gonzalez Navarro,
    Bills and Exchange Banesto Forex Bank Madrid Spain,
    Tell: +34 603 135 949
    Fax: +34 917 692 877
    REF: ES DSV/P67/12/11/2018

    We've reported this to the Canadian anti-fraud centre. I wonder what will come of it?

    Gonzalez-Santiago Law firm Scam letter.

    Yet another September 2018 letter offering £8,750,000. Two identical letters in two envelopes to the same person.
    The company name and address in Cadiz are legitimate names and details, they have a great website, but the email and the telephone number on the letter are completely different and the lawyers name is that of the firm! Gonzalez Santiago.
    Offering a 50% split with 10% to charity if you contact. Threatening if you don’t contact it will go to another relative.

    Scam using a "Possible relative"

    I received a fax stating that a possible distant relative in Spain has an estate to finalize. I have no relatives in Spain. This is a scam of course. I looked up the street address provided in Madrid on Google. It is an unidentified door between two restaurants.

    phone call and email

    This is an email I received after a conversation with him.

    Dear Mr. & Mrs. Olbrys,

    Lorca Lorca & Asociados is a law firm, appointed by the P.G.R. to filter and conduct an investigation on all private information seized on Mexican territory. There is an open federal case for many counts of fraud, money laundering, amongst other major crimes. P.G.R has seized assets along with catalogs and data bases from "Boiler Rooms" involved in fraudulent transactions, with connection to timeshare.

    Article 68 of Mexico's L.F.P.D.P.P.P. (Ley Federal de Proteccion de Datos Personales en Posesion de los Particulares), translates to Federal Law on Protection of Personal Data, which states the following: Any transfer of personal data, whether national or international, is subject to the consent of its owner.

    In addition, under Article 56 of the Consumers Protection Law, your information is protected, and both of the consumers right laws have been violated. We also have an option to relinquish your rights to your vacation membership as a result of the above-mentioned Federal Laws. We will determine if the resort has any involvement, which PROFECO will sanction according to Federal Laws. Once the Foreign Vacation Investment Owner is identified as a victim, which crimes/frauds range from direct timeshare complaints, third party monetary losses, harassment via telemarketing calls, etc..., Lorca Lorca & Asociados will provide pro bono legal assistance federally funded. Legal assistance will result in restitution for lost money, damages, relinquishment of rights, other legal causes violated, harassment, and/or apprehension of suspects involved in timeshare fraud.

    Once this is done, each case will be examined and evaluated on a case-by-case bases. Cases will be disbursed in order of assigned Case File I.D. number.

    Attached you will find the “Cuestionario de Ingreso y Autorizacion” form, please forward the completed form with the required signatures by fax or email.

    Lic. Alejandro Tlaloc Samaniego Reyna

    I have recieved a letter in the mail from a man claiming to be a spanish lawyer named REX DUTH LAZCANO. He offers me to inherit £6,5 mill. after a man sharing my surname. The money is placed in a security Safe Keeping Institution, Vinsa Seguridad Alentis Madrid. He wants to share the money 40-40% and 10% will go to set up a trust fund in the name of the man whom I share the same surname with. This alleged lawyer has gone so far in his scam, that he has phoned me several times and send me three documents, a death certificate, a certificate of deposit of the money, and a deed of lodge, just trying to convince me that he is telling the truth. But there are so many descrepancies in his story, because he wants this to be strictly between us and there must be no third part until the fund is successfully claimed. He even wants me to come to Spain an claim the fund, and he will be my lawyer and make all the paperwork, which will be totally legal and transparent, and bears no risk for me. The finance company will then transfer the money to my account, and mr Lazcano will then come to my place to disburse the funds. So please be aware og this man.
