Cold call from Luxury wanting to buy Exclusive Catalonia Travel Plan. Both companies located in Mexico. We asked for further information. Legal Firm associate (supposedly) from John Williams Guest Law Group located in New York contacted us and sent a sales agreement. We have not agreed to anything nor have they asked for any funds. Just seems fishy. Anyone have a similar experience? Our due diligence has not found anything yet.

As others confirmed, this is a common scam.

No website for Luxury Travel Corp found. However, there is a website for John Williams Guest Law Group. There is also a registered attorney in NY by the same name. That is all part of the scam. These scammers, very likely located in Mexico, found a real attorney name and then created a fake website.

The website was created February 2024. The scammers copied verbiage from a legit attorney website. You can compare below.

Scammer website - https://williamguestlawgroup.com/

Legit attorney website that they copied - https://www.rosenbaumtaylor.com/

If that isn’t enough proof for you, the scammers created another fake attorney website in January 2024, this one supposedly based in Los Angeles. The websites share the same registrar but in the other website they made a mistake and listed the contact which is a name in Mexico. These two websites also share the same about us verbiage (they both claim founded in 2007).
