A Spanish company under the name Favila Arenas is cold calling consumers pretending to be the liquidators of Reclaim.
They inform the consumer that he needs to fill in a form and then they will assess how much money they will receive back. Money set aside by the Spanish government.
Once the consumer fills in the form that is send over by email, they are informed that a certain amount has been awarded. The amounts are actually too good to be true and will be transferred over to the consumers in a time period of 10 days.
After waiting the 10 days the consumer does not see any movement and neither does the long awaited cheque arrive.
A quick call to Favila Arenas clarifies what has happened. Favila Arenas kindly explains that as the consumer has not declared his “investment” with the Tax Office in Spain, the Government has blocked the money.
That’s bad luck! But thanks god we have Favila Arenas to help out! They send a long winded 2 page document by email explaining how to solve this situation. From all the options they give such as travelling to Spain and request a Tax Identification Number and numerous trips to pick up this paperwork, of course taking on the services from Favila Arenas is the most confortable option and cheapest! Shame none of it is true!
Favila Arenas does not have a website. Their contact details as appear on their letter headed documents are: Telephone 0034 800 80 89 41 and Fax 0034 956 92 19 40 Email address; firstname.lastname@example.org
Their office is based in Avenida Alcalde Manuel de la Pinta 18 – 24, Cadiz 11011, Spain
Upon checking the Spanish companies house there is no such company registered. Neither is there any liquidator appointed for Reclaim, no money is held in Spanish accounts to be paid out to the victims and the Spanish Government would certainly not appoint a dubious company for their official dealings!
