Litigacion Abogados

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 Lawyers in Tenerife, an enormous list of fake and fraudulent set ups!

If you receive a call or email from any of these or any company with a similar story that your timeshare company is in court and you can be part of the action, remember don’t pay them any money. Contact Inside Timeshare using our contact page and let us know the details.

A New Twist In the Saga of Litigious Abogados

As if things couldn’t get any stranger, the “FAKE” law firm in Tenerife Litigacion Abogados which is one incarnation of the “FAKE” lawyers we have dubbed the Litigious Abogados family has now surpassed themselves with the lengths they will go to dupe timeshare owners.

The blog sight Mindtimeshare is now the victim, timeshare owners are now receiving calls from one Joyce Adams, who claims she is calling from a “law firm” called Mindtimeshare, from the following number:

0034822684554

Another number given is:

0800 802 1982

 

They have even set up an email address, again using the free email address provider of consultant.com, one thing you will notice is they have spelt it wrong:

[email protected]

As well as the Mindtimeshare name they are also using their logo, if you look at it carefully is not the same typeface as the original.

The story is the same as always, the consumers timeshare company is being taken to court and you can be part of the case. All you need to do to “benefit” from this is to pay the Procurators fee into an Escrow Account with the court in Tenerife.

One snag here, the account is in the name of the “Fake” Procurator Alexander Bowross. If you were paying money into a court I very much doubt that it would be into the account of a named individual!

For those of you who are aware of mindtimeshare you will know they are not a law firm, but a consumer advice blog site which also issues warnings of rogue and bogus operations, just like Inside Timeshare. Over the past year or so, Inside Timeshare has been sharing information on this “fake” lawyers in all their incarnations, we shall continue to do so which is why we are publishing this article today.

Inside Timeshare will continue to publish articles on these “FAKE, BOGUS and DUBIOUS” companies to warn you the reader and help you to save your hard earned cash.

If you have been contacted by any company or found one on the internet and want to find out if they are who they say they are, contact Inside Timeshare, we will help you to find out if they and what they say is genuine.

Remember the golden rule

CHECK, CHECK AND CHECK AGAIN, DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

Tomorrow in Friday’s Letter from America the article is entitled

Are Timeshare Developers the Pot Calling the Kettle Black?

The Heir Scare – The Same Scare Provided by a Timeshare Sales Agent and a Timeshare Exit Company Sales Agent!

With an introduction from our very own Irene Parker along with Contributions from Tom Tubbs of Island Consulting Realty and Mike Finn of Finn Law Group.

This article will also be of benefit to our European readers as they will also be familiar with this subject, so join us tomorrow for more Letters from America.

 

Another Fake Law Firm from the Litigious Abogados Family

Here we go again, yet another fake law firm has sprung up in Tenerife, again it is linked to the Litigious Abogados family. This one is called Abogados Litigación España  and JDD Juan Drimals Deolaro, with the website:

http://abogadoslitigacionespana.com

Which was registered on 11 October 2018 and is due to expire on 11 October 2019, so not only has it been registered for only 11 days, but will only last for 1 year. As usual the registrant is hidden by privacy protection. They also show another fake CIF Number (company number) to add credibility: A12475921

The address is also very familiar as it has been used before:

Calle de San Francisco, 6, 38001 Santa Cruz de Tenerife, España

Telephone numbers are:

Freephone: 0800 862 0036

Tenerife Tel: 0034 822 684 562

With the email addresses which again are not linked to the website but are free email address providers:

[email protected]

[email protected]

The “company” was founded in August 1990, a slight difference to previous one as they do not give the day or the date, but the founder is Juan Drimals Deolaro, another name that we published in the article Litigacion Abogados on 10 October, using the same photograph:

The names and photographs of the lawyers are also the same although they do have a new name and photograph for another young lady on the contact page, Mevalena Cacha Coquina. She is in fact a young lawyer from a firm in Chile, Carmen Castillo Arenas, obtaining her law degree in 2006, the firm she works for is Manuel Acuña Kairath Abogados, based in Santiago, Chile.

Mevalena Cacha Coquina

Manuel Doleva Elkulete

Valentin Foga Rehalna

Manuel Selbon Vamilos

They also show many official logos such as the Ilustre Colegio de Abogados for Madrid and Santa Cruz de Tenerife including this one below.

Well, we don’t need to guess what the pitch is going to be, we are by now very familiar with their modus operandi, the news that your timeshare company is being taken to court within the next few weeks. Pay the “FAKE” Court Procurator a fee and you can be included.

Then the great news that the director of your timeshare company pleaded guilty, (we just wonder what name will be used for this director), with the court awarding you a very substantial amount of money. One snag, they now need 20% of the awarded amount to pay “TAXES”!

This firm is just the latest incarnation of many which have now been operating for around 3 years, continuously changing names and website addresses, one thing that has remained constant is the all the websites are the same and the story is always identical.

Remember, unless you have personally instructed a law firm and gone through all the legal procedures, then you do not have a case in court. Do not be fooled by these criminals, it is a very elaborate and well put together fraud, we know many who have fallen for it and have lost thousands with no way of getting it back.

If you have been contacted by this “fake law firm” or one with a similar story, then contact Inside Timeshare, we will help you check their validity.

Our warning is always the same:

CHECK, CHECK AND CHECK AGAIN, DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

 

Consumer Warning: A New Fake Law Firm in Tenerife Part of the Litigious Abogados Family

Just as we expected after the last article about a new fake law firm in Tenerife, Litigacion Abogados, this one is called ADN Alberto Dlendro Nabalez, Litigacionespaña SL and is another in the family of Litigious Abogados.

The website http://litigacionespanasl.com which is only 14 days old was registered on 3 October 2018 with as usual the registrar hidden by privacy protect. According to the home page the company was formed on Thursday 20 August 1990, a date we have seen before. They also show a fakeCIF number A19626885, which is the same as for Litigaciones SL.

The address is also very familiar

4, Calle de S. Francisco, 4, Santa Cruz, 38001-38002, Tenerife

With the following telephone numbers.

Freephone: 0800 862 0 314

Tenerife Tel: 0034 822 680 013

These numbers are also the same as for Litigaciones SL.

Once again they show photographs of their lawyers, which we have again identified.

Alberto Dlendro Nabalez the founder, who is actually López Saavedra, an Argentinian lawyer.

Manuel Rintas Quejom, who is in fact a lawyer based in Orland called David Haenel.

Valentino Afelergo Barile, so far unidentified.

Juan Iominan Ovaso, who we highlight in an earlier article is in fact the Argentinian Lawyer Alberto Nisman, who was assassinated in 2015. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alberto_Nisman )

We also have the 2 young ladies from the article on Litigaciones SL http://insidetimeshare.com/start-the-week-litigaciones-sl-a-new-name-in-the-litigious-abogados-family/

Vittoria Tetazi Normez (Actual person identified as Johanna M. Herrero, Born Argentina, and runs a law firm in Boston USA, http://www.johannaherrerolaw.com/attorneys-1/ )

Maria Gosadema Raviya (At present unidentified)

Now for a firm whose website was only registered on 3 October, they have really surpassed themselves, they actually have a case being heard in court on 30 October, and to be part of this case a sum of money has to be paid direct to the “Court Procurator” directly. As yet we do not know what name they will be using for this Procurator.

So we now have a new name with the same old fraud.

This just goes to show how careful timeshare owners must be, if you have any doubts about the authenticity of any caller, email or company you have found on the internet, you should do your homework and check them thoroughly. If you need any help in this, use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will help you make the checks.

Remember, do your homework, you know it makes sense!

More Fake Law Firms Surface

Today we publish another 2 fake law firms, the first is another incarnation of that fake outfit in Tenerife which we have dubbed Litigious Abogados Family.

The new name is Litigacion Abogados with the website

http://litigacion-abogados.com

Which was registered on 5 September 2018 so only a month old, as usual the registrant is hidden using a privacy service.

The address given on the website is one that we have seen before

6, Calle de SAN. Francisco, Santa Cruz, 38001-38002, Tenerife

With the following telephone numbers

Freephone: 0800 862 0036

Tenerife Tel: 0034 822 684 562

The email addresses are once again the @consultant.com which is a free email address provider and not linked to the website.

[email protected]

[email protected]

The website is exactly the same as all previous ones apart from the names of the lawyers, the homepage states that the company was founded on Thursday 2 August 1990 by Juan Drimales Deolaro, pictured below.

The other lawyers are named as

Manuel Doleva Elkulete

Valentin Foga Rehalna

Manuel Selbon Vamilos

So far the actual people in the photographs have not been identified, but rest assured they will have just been taken from images posted on the internet.

We can bet the same format will be used, that your timeshare company is being taken to court and for a fee paid to the procurador (yet to be identified) you can be part of the case. Later you will receive notification that the director of your timeshare company pleaded guilty and to release the funds a tax will need to be paid. We know the rest of the story.

This is a fake law firm just like all the others that have preceded it, do not be taken in by them.

Our second fake law firm is rather interesting, they are called VB Ballesteros y Asociados, the website which looks very professional is

https://vbballesterosyasociados.com/

Registered 5 June 2018 and again the registrant is hidden by a privacy company based in the UK. The address given is

Doctor Fleming s/n, 28032 Madrid.

Telephone number which is a Spanish mobile

0034 634 066 899

With the email address

Email. [email protected]

On the About page they give a lawyers registration number 108099 when this is checked with the lawyers register for Madrid there is a lawyer named as Virginia Benítez Ballesteros, who was registered 21 June 2013. Making some checks on this lawyer we did find several references to her, one was her facebook page and she lists where she has studied, which is quite impressive, she also shows she is working for Enveld Capital SA and is Company Secretary and on the Board of Directors. So we can can safely say that whoever is behind this fake law firm is using this young ladies good name and registration number.

Miss Ballesteros has been informed of this illegal use of her name and registration number and no doubt she will take the appropriate legal action, it is just totally despicable that these crooks and swindlers are using the good name of a hard working young lady.

If you have been contacted by either of the above or even by any company claiming to be a law firm, then use our contact page and let us know the details. If you are unsure how to check on the validity of any company, contact us and we will help you find out. It is through your information that we can warn others.
