Scam Description

They are a “mexican law firm” located in Monterrey Mexico. They contacted me via email out of the blue, asking if I was in the middle of a resale transaction for my timeshare. They said they were “trying to prevent” scams from fraudulent companies…
I actually was. I don’t know how they found my information or how they knew what I was doing.
I was leery about this whole situation so I called them. When I did, pretty much they “guessed” (asked a lot of questions) in what part of the process we were standing and they told me how these “brokerage firms” work and that they are a scam since they were asking me to cover a fee for the transfer of my membership. They tried to convince me to send them all the paperwork I have received from the firm I was working with and at first I felt scared about being scammed so I did. They told me they were going to send me some documents to my email to fill out and send them back to them so they can resend all the information to an institution of the mexican government, the “FGR”, the Fiscalia General de la Republica, because they’re in charge of these scams. They told me these “firms” are actually located in Mexico and that they always ask to send money to a bank in Mexico. They asked me to stop answering their calls and emails while they send the information to the FGR. When I though the nightmare was over and they were actually “helping me” they asked me to send them money so they could continue working on this scams but that they would keep me updated.
It caught my attention they asked me to stop sending money to Mexico but now they were asking me to send the money to their account in Mexico. That didn’t make sense at all. So I hired an investigator to look them up and THEY WERE THE SCAM. The “company” is supposedly located in Monterrey, but the server they are working on has an IP address from Mexico city and the scammers are located in “Zapopan, Jalisco”.
Unfortunately, there are a LOT OF SCAMMERS trying to get our money. The best solution is to look them up, search for their information in detail and ask them to send out all the possible information. There is NO “lawyer” from Mexico that will help you to get your money back if you got scammed, neither help you to send this information to any government institution. They all are looking to get our money and send it to Mexico. If you are about to send your funds to Mexico, most likely is a scam.
