    Dear Steven,

    Many queries!

    Windram Miller is a legitimate law firm located in Marbella, not a lawyer, to the best of my knowledge.

    Regarding the other "law firm" you mention, Fernando Advocaten and Abogados, we had already included them in our list of bogus or fake Spanish law firms. No such law firm exists.

    Please read the following article on scammers passing themselves off as legitimate Spanish lawyers and Spanish law firms:

    Public Warning.-Scammers passing themselves off as Spanish lawyers and law firms - 13th March 2009

    Please distrust anyone contacting you through a cold call asking for money upfront. Lawyers never do this. How did they get your contact details? Ask them for their registered number to practice law and to what Bar Association they belong to in Spain. Only registered lawyers can address themselves as lawyers and give legal advice.

    Regarding Inheritance tax, I'm afraid it does exist, yes. On you inheriting assets in Spain you will be liable for it. Please read my article on the matter:

    If you have further queries, just let me know.

    Yours faithfully,
    Raymundo Larraín Nesbitt

    Dear Sir,

    As per the reply above, this law firm ("Fernandolegal and abogados in Madrid") is non-existent. They are just conmen.

    Do not send them any further funds.

    Please read the following:
