It is only a couple of days since we published the latest article on Litigious Abogados and all the other associated “Law Firms” in Tenerife. This latest effort from the new one Abel Garcia is exceptionally brilliant.
Our reader received the following email:
Dear Mr XXXX,
We are pleased to inform you that an official lodgment has successfully been implemented. Your case can now be pursued with the Santa Cruz courts should you wish to proceed.
Our Lawyer’s office will then liaise with you every step of the way until final settlement is obtained. We have been informed that there are very strong grounds for compensation.
Assuring you of our best attention at all times, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your involvement thus far and send you our best regards.

Fantastic news, he has a case and wonderful grounds for compensation, but there is only one small problem, how can the case go to court?
The purchase was made in the UK in 1999, the company that sold it, is no longer in business, the club to which he became a member is also no longer in business. According to Company House Records, both companies dissolved many years ago, as no date is showing.
So how is this very successful “law firm” able to get this case heard in Santa Cruz de Tenerife?
One, the purchase was not made on Spanish territory, so Spanish timeshare law does not apply, secondly, there is no company or club to take to court as they no longer exist. What is the betting that if this reader had paid the legal fees, in a matter of weeks they would have received what looks like an official court document showing they had won the case and been awarded substantial amounts in compensation. Also I would not be surprised if the Director of the company pleaded guilty and was named as Kevin Baker or Kevin Balker or something revolving around that.
Then there would be the next letter to say that Tax was due to the Hacienda, this would need to be paid before the court could release the cheque. The amount of “TAX” would probably be around 10% to 20% of the compensation amount. If you are unable to afford that then loe and behold, the Lawyer Liaison Mr Richard Lehman would be on hand to negotiate a Pro Bono deal, where the “Partners” would agree to pay 80% of the “TAX” amount, leaving you to only find 20%. They would even show a BBVA cheque to one of the procurators, who incidentally all have very similar names, various bank accounts and the same address.
This amount would then be added to your invoice for payment once you receive the Banesto cheque from the court procurator, one of the Davido’s, Harstun’s, Jaime’s, Jilmo’s, Darston’s or the latest one to come up D Hurstom F400SL, incidentally his first name is “DAVIDO”, his bank account is with BancaMarch. Also has the same address as the others. They are certainly a big family!
As we were getting ready to publish this article, our reader has received the following email and the attached letter.
Subject: Reduced Court Fees
Dear Mr XXXX
I hereby attach a letter with very good news from one of our Lawyers Mr Ramon Quena Cinol.
Assuring you of our best attention and care always, we send you our kind regards.
It is important you confirm receipt of this Email and its attachment.
In this letter, the lawyer Ramon Quena Cinol, states that as the court has accepted further claims against the defendant, there are more grounds for compensation and thus the fees are less than previously stated.
The case which was lodged on Tuesday 4 March 2017, is due to be heard on 25 April 2017, at the Court of Instruction Number 6, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Well, well, well!!! What a very fast and efficient service they perform, getting a case lodged and heard in under 2 months!
Inside Timeshare has never known any case to get to court in this speedy manner, this firm of “lawyers” must have very good connections with the courts.
For previous articles in the search box type Litigious Abogados.
Once again Inside Timeshare cannot stress the importance of doing your homework, in the case of this reader, he found the articles just in time, he felt something was not quite right and started his search. Then contacted us for further information with his purchase documents, after checking what he purchased and researching the company, Inside Timeshare was able to tell him that no claim was possible.
If you have been contacted or are in contact with any company, especially one that is offering to “claim” against your timeshare, contact Inside Timeshare and we will point you in the right direction.
