I am told I am Owed €12,196 from the Lifestyle/Hyprafund

Resolved Question:

I am told I am
Owed €12,196 from the Lifestyle/Hyprafund Court case. Because I am not resident in Spain and haven't got an NIE number, I am required to send €2,561 to pay off my tax debt in Spain, before any money owing to me is released. How do I know that this is legitimate and not another timeshare con? I have been initially contacted by Centro de Documentacion Europea by an Agente de administration judicial?? Christine
