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.

Fake Law Firms Using Real Lawyers Photographs

Following on from our previous articles regarding the “fake law firms” we today highlight two more and identify the actual persons whose images have been used.

The first is, Abogados Canarias which is part of the Litigious Abogados family, we have now found new identities from the photographs they have used on their website as their lawyers.

The first is the so-called founder of the company Manuel Cilavoz Varintos, who is in actual fact Carlos Magnanini the Global Account Manager for the Argentinian company Clarke Modet & Co Argentina SA.

Another photograph on the website named as Fernando Siltal Crostena is actually another Argentinian, Doctor Jaime Leonardo Kleidermacher of A. Kleidermacher Abogados & Consultores. He graduated from the University of Buenos Aires in 1986.

The photograph of Juan Cretedos Dolabaris has not been fully identified, but it is believed to be an Italian lawyer called Pasquale Frisina Roma. The search for this one continues.

The third lawyer pictured Manolo Derban Ferolita has so far not been found on any searches.

Another of the “fake” law firms is Amador Galeca Abogados, which we highlighted in September 2017.

http://amadorgaleca.com/civil-law/

The so-called founder of this company is named as Amador Malodan Galeca, he is in fact Emilio J. Zegrí Boada, from the Spanish law firm Zegri + Olivar, based at Avenida Diagonal, 606, Principal 1ª 08021 Barcelona.

Another lawyer whose image is being used is named as Simono Maenga Arlovas, he is in fact a young but distinguished lawyer named Joshua R. Valentine, from the law firm Caulder & Valentine based at 1157 E Marion St Suite 4 Shelby, NC 28150. tel:704.470.2440 .704.754.8401 (fax).

According to his profile on the firms website he is a very highly educated young lawyer:

  • Associate Editor of Charlotte School of Law Law Review

We now have two lawyers from the Amador Galeca website from the same law firm, Clarke Kann Lawyers from Australia, this firm has two offices based at Level 7, 300 Queen Street Brisbane QLD 4000 Australia and Level 4, 9 Castlereagh Street Sydney NSW 2000 Australia.

On the “fake” website they are named as Manuel Pralge Namblib who is actually Joseph Najem a Consultant based at their Sydney office:

Then there is Balthathar Hirmod Nisbelam, who in fact is Steven Cardell, a Partner in the firm and based in Brisbane.

So there we have it, not only are these “fake” firms forging official documents, using official logos illegally but also using photographs of genuine lawyers without their knowledge, although they will know by the end of today.

Inside Timeshare is here to help you get to the truth, if you have had any contact from any of the companies named in these articles use our contact page and let us know. Remember these are not genuine law firms, they exist only to take your hard earned money from you.
