Fake Law Firms: A Growing List

Back in September 2016 Inside Timeshare highlighted two fake law firms, Litigar Abogados and Litigious Abogados, which began contacting timeshare owners with news that their timeshare companies were being taken to court. Since that time they have reinvented themselves with many new names.

The common factors with all the new incarnations have been the websites, all have been exactly the same apart from the new names and photographs of the fake lawyers. Even the logos have been very similar.

How they have all operated has also remained the same, the client is informed that their timeshare companies is about to be taken to court, for a fee to a fake procurator they can become part of that action. Within weeks the client receives a very convincing looking court document showing that the “Director” of the timeshare company pleaded guilty and the client has been awarded a substantial amount of money. The client also receives a photocopy of the check made out in their name to bolster this deception.

Unfortunately, there are now taxes to be paid before the money can be released by the court, the “tax” is 20% of the awarded amount. Once this “tax” has been paid, the client receives a letter by post, the thing is the letter has been opened and the cheque is missing, only a staple and a small fragment of paper is left on the letter.

Low and behold, the client receives another email from another company, they claim they have been appointed by the court to get the client their money back as the cheques was “cashed” by a foreign criminal gang. But again, in order to do this 10% of the cheques value must be paid.

All payments are also to be made by bank transfer and to a named individual.

As you can guess, once this is paid that is it, you will never see the money or hear from them again.

This whole fraud is a very clever and sophisticated one, all documentation looks very genuine, from the court documents, procurators and lawyers letters and the cheques. All bearing what look like official stamps and logos of various official bodies.

In this time, Inside Timeshare has been sharing and receiving further information with Mindtimeshare, the whole point was to publicise this fraud to a wider audience. Recently Mindtimeshare published a list of all the fake lawyers and procurators associated with what Inside Timeshare has dubbed The Litigious Abogados Family. This is Mindtimeshare’s list, as you can see it is huge.

More Photographs Identified

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.

amador-ganeca-logo

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.

amador-ganeca-fw

http://www.yanezabogados.com/en/firm/

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 Alejandro Aparicio Ferrer, of the Valencia based firm Aparicio Consulting Juridico – Económico.

simone-maengas-arlovaz-wm

We then have Balthazar Hermid Nisbemas, again a very similar name Balthather Hirmod Nisbelam, from the same Amador Galeca website identified as the Australian lawyer Steve Cardell.

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.

balthazar-hermid-nisbemas-wm

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.

domingo-varlotes-biriendel-wm

http://www.arbaizaabogados.com/

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.

http://insidetimeshare.com/litigipus-abogados-family-gets-bigger/

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.

https://en.trend.az/azerbaijan/politics/2735370.html

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.

http://aparicioconsulting.es/en/equipo/alejandro-aparicio-ferrer

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”.

 

Another New Member of the Litigious Abogados Family Just Been Born!

In yesterday’s article it was mentioned that it was only time that a new name would surface for the fake law firm which is the Litigious Abogados family, well, after publishing it did surface!

amador-ganeca-logo

Amador Ganeca Abogados, the new firm and new website, created on 16 June 2017, which looks just like all the rest of them, all that is different are the names. Even the photo’s of the so-called lawyers are the same but with a change of name.

http://amadorganeca.com/

The pitch is the same, there is a trial about to take place against your timeshare resort and you can be part of this on a no win no fee basis. This trial is about to take place within the next few weeks, a date has even been set. It has been estimated that you are due ex-thousands of euros in compensation.

Amador Ganeca aka Armando Garcia

For the case to go ahead, the Procurador needs to be paid to handle the case, we do wonder who the new Procurador is, as there have been several in the past, all with very similar names. Once this is paid, the client will in the next month receive a letter and a “court document” to say that the director of the timeshare resort pleaded guilty, just wondering will it be Keith Baker again?

Manuel Pralgo Namslom aka Balthazar Fermid Nisberas

Now for the good news, you have been awarded 20,000€, they even send a photocopy of Banesto cheque in your name for that amount. Problem is Banesto has not existed as a bank since 2012. Plus courts do not issue cheques.

In order to receive this wonderful sum, you must now pay Spanish Tax! This amounts to around 21% of the awarded amount, once this is paid the court will release the cheque. Fantastic!

domingo-varlotes-biriendel-wm
Domingo Varlotes Biriendel new photo but  a slight change of name from the one below.

If like in the past, you will receive a brown jiffy bag posted from Tenerife with a letter from the court and the cheque. Only one problem, the envelope is open, the letter is there with a staple on the corner and a torn piece of paper where the cheque should be.

Simone Maengas Arlovaz aka Domingo Barlotes Miriendel

You will then receive a letter from another company that states that your cheque was cashed by a gang of Romanians, this company has been charged with the task of recovering your money from the bank. Great, but to do this they need a payment of at least 10% of the cheques value.

balthazar-hermid-nisbemas-wm

Balthazar Hermid Nisbemas aka Juan Firmid Mantadiz

It makes you wonder how many people have actually been taken in by this particular fraud?

The documents look very genuine, the letters written in English are actually very good, obviously a native, educated speaker. The whole operation is very well planned, the names of the law firms change virtually every couple of months, so they are keeping one step ahead of the authorities. No doubt, once your money is paid into the bank accounts of the Procurador, it is withdrawn and all trace is then lost. As we have said before this is a very sophisticated operation.

If you have been contacted by any of these “law firms”, or any other company that states your timeshare resort is about to be taken or has been taken to court, do your homework. Don’t be taken in by the huge sums of money they say you are due. If you have any doubts, contact Inside Timeshare and we will point you in the right direction.
