It seems some of the old names are making a come back, the latest is Greenges 2005 SL. These were based in Fuengirola and have not been heard from for around 5 years, this time in a very unusual way.
Inside Timeshare received an enquiry regarding a call they received telling them that their parents had been awarded £24,000 by the courts for a mis sold timeshare in Tenerife. The call came from someone claiming to be from the Ministry of Justice and to verify the fact they should contact Greenges in Spain who he claimed had done the work for the readers parents.
According to the caller from the Ministry of Justice, if they did not claim the money within 5 days it would be returned back to the court. This is a very strange fact, as the courts do not work in this way, also the Ministry of Justice is a Government Department and nothing to do with the Judiciary and Courts.
So we can only speculate that the scam will be the usual “Taxes” to release the money, then a fee to pay for the work involved.
Now Greenges 2005 SL is still a registered company with the NIF number B92652288, the registered address is:
Calle San Antonio 22, Edificio San Miguel, 29640 Fuengirola, they also had another address which also comes up on Google as:
Lope de Vega 60, 29631 Arroyo de la Miel, Benalmádena, this address is actually at Los Boliches Fuengirola not Arroyo de la Miel.
Previous telephone numbers are:
According to the Google ad it is a computer software company, yet we can’t find any website for them.
A past director of the company Sharifi Mahmoud Reza has well known links with the following companies:
The latest director is named as Daniel Ernesto Calle Guden who was appointed on 21 February 2018.
It must also be remembered, when they were operating in the past they were posing as a law firm yet their business activity according to the company register included purchase and sale of motor vehicles and food, the provision of all kinds of services such as accounting and financial advice.
So there we have it, the old firms up and running again, this time claiming that money has been awarded and is waiting to be paid out.
If you receive a call or email claiming to be from the Ministry of Justice, or some company appointed by the courts, then you can be sure it is going to be a scam.
Contact Inside Timeshare if you need any help on how to check out any company that contacts you or that you have found on the internet, doing your homework will save you from the scammers in the end.
