This week Inside Timeshare has been highlighting the “Fake Law Firms” which are part of the Litigious Abogados Family, today we publish more identities of the genuine people whose images have been used.
We start with Amador Ganeca Abogados, when you enter the website the first photo you see is of the “founder” called Amador Ganeca, this gentleman is in fact the founder of Yáñez & Asociados Abogados, Álvaro Yáñez.
This law firm is based in Bogotá, Columbia, it has been in existence for 35 years.
There are another four “lawyers” pictured, so far only one has not been identified, the first is known as Simone Maengas Arlovaz, very similar to the name used for the image of Joshua Valentine in yesterday’s article, Simono Maenga Arlovas, from Amador Galeca Abogados.
The actual person is Diego Muñoz one of the founding partners in the Muñoz Tamayo & Asociados, from Bogotá, Columbia. He is also President of the Colombian Legal Services Chamber of the ANDI Association, so another very eminent person whose image has been used illegally.
The last one from this “fake firm” is Domingo Varlotes Biriendel, whose is actually Dr. Augusto Arbaiza Perito Grafotécnico Abogado – Criminalista, a distinguished lawyer in Peru’s Capital Lima. The original photograph was probably lifted from the website below.
We now move to Amador Gareca Abogados, this website is no longer accessible, which is not surprising as we did highlight this “firm” in June 2017.
The image and name used for the founder of this “firm” is Armando Garcia, none other than the above named Álvaro Yáñez, of Amador Ganeca Abogados.
The next image is named as Agustin Bigote Pringata, it is in fact the Azerbijan Ambassador to Argentina Rashad Aslanov, the photo is actually doctored from the official photo of him presenting his credentials to the Argentinian President Mauricio Macri.
Once again the same image used on the Amador Ganeca website for Simone Maengas Arlovaz, is named here as Domingo Barlotes Miriendel, who is Alejandro Aparicio Ferrer, of the Valencia based firm Aparicio Consulting Juridico – Económico.
The last is named as Juan Firmid Mantadiz, but again the same image is used on the Amador Ganeca website, using the alias Balthazar Hermid Nisbemas, it is once again Diego Muñoz.
As you can see, the creators of these “fake firms” have been very creative with choice of names and the careful use of images, using ones which look distinguished and trustworthy. Obviously a lot of effort went into searching for the images, but this really does go to show how you cannot trust everything you see on the internet.
If you have been contacted by any company or are thinking of taking on any services regarding your timeshare, contact Inside Timeshare, we will be happy to point you in the right direction in finding the genuine firms from the “fake”.
