Paloma Abogados: Latest Edition to the Fake Litigious Abogados Family

Well, it didn’t take long for Inside Timeshare to uncover yet another incarnation of the “FAKE” law firm we have dubbed the Litigious Abogados Family, this time they are called Paloma Abogados. As usual, they are operating out of Tenerife and it certainly looks like the same old Modus Operandi is being employed. Your timeshare company is being taken to court and for around 1000€ upfront you too can be part of the case. No doubt within a few weeks the director will have pleaded guilty and you will be awarded thousands back.

According to their website which is exactly the same as all the previous incarnations with just some minor changes, they were founded on 1 September 1994, by Fernando Nialgan Torkas. That’s funny, his picture is the same as for Fernando Olawza Garcia of Torcaz Abogados, who is actually Judge Dana Makoto Sabraw, for the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.

Judge Dana Makoto Sabraw, for the United States District Court for the Southern District of California

The website was only registered on 12 June 2020 just about a month ago and is set to expire on 12 June 2021, so only registered for one year. Seems very strange that a “law firm” as “prestigious” as this founded in 1994 has only just set up a website and only for one year?

The “lawyers” shown are the very same as those for Torcaz Abogados, only now with new names. Hernan Destaras Caletasan becomes Eduardo Antanari Morintora, Juan Erestaldo Goberas is now Manuel Fulama Alinternu, Manuel Fertals Idelaris is now Francisco Golerbol Lantas and  Ricardo Lunkmand transforms into Ricardo Luncmant, just a slight change here, but he is also now a “Paralegal” not a lawyer.

They show a CIF (fiscal) number on their logo A77439012, which again as always is “FAKE”. They show their address as:

Calle Emilo Calzadilla Número 5 38002 Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Although the address does exist it is more than likely false for this firm. Checking Google street view it was too dark to make anything out.

They show a freephone number 0800 802 1659

Their email address is [email protected] which as we know is a free email address provider and is not linked to their website which one would have thought it would be, especially being a “law firm”.

Going by the Modus Operandi of all the previous incarnations they will be providing “prospective clients” with all the “official-looking” court documents, procurator letters and not to forget a photocopy of the cheque (fake IBAN) you will receive when your case has been won.

Then the cheque will be sent by post, and yes you’ve guessed it, the cheque will be missing and you will be informed it was stolen by a gang of East Europeans with collusion from post office workers (16 of them).

So once again Inside Timeshare warns all our readers to be aware of any calls or emails from Paloma Abogados with the great news they have a case about to go to trial. If you have been contacted by them please use our contact page and let us know.

REMEMBER, DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST BEFORE ENGAGING WITH ANY COMPANY THAT CONTACTS YOU.

Start the Week: New Management Company For Azure Malta

Welcome to the start of another week with Inside Timeshare, today we publish news for all those members of Azure Resorts in Malta. As we have published over the past weeks, Azure Services Ltd and Azure Resorts Limited are in the process of liquidation as are many of the other companies within the Limora Group such as Silverpoint. Inside Timeshare has received many enquiries as to what is going to happen to members of the “club”? Today we publish the news we have been waiting for a new management company has now been appointed.

Last week Members should have received a letter from First National Trustee Company (UK) Ltd commonly known as FNTC. They have been requested to establish a new company to act as manager of the clubs to replace Azure Resorts Ltd.

The new management company will be known as Vacation Club Services Limited (VCSL), they will also have to establish a Maltese registered company which is to be called VCMS Co Limited, (Vacation Club Malta Services Co Ltd).

It is to be a non-profit making company with the sole role of managing the clubs on “for and on behalf” of all members. The clubs which this new company will be responsible for are:

Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort Malta

The new management company will also be employing local staff to service needs of club members, so hopefully, those local staff who were employed by Azure Resorts may just get back their jobs.

It was also announced that VCSL will be provided with an “appropriate working capital” to deal with its short term operating requirements. This is being provided in the form of a loan which will be unsecured and interest-free by the liquidators Of Azure Resorts and Azure XP. There is no fixed date for the repayment.

This is very good news for all members of these clubs as over the past few weeks many “claims & exit” companies (many being bogus) have been targeting members with the usual scare stories that they are about to lose everything. Inside Timeshare did explain in our many articles that steps were being taken by the Corinthia Group, who own the hotels which members use, to ensure that membership and usage would continue. They have now been shown to be true to their word.

Inside Timeshare wishes the new company all the best and that all members may now enjoy the memberships they have paid for.

PDF of the full letter from FNTC:

Inside Timeshare would also like to inform our readers that due to a personal bereavement there may be a lack of articles over the next week or so. Inside Timeshare will try to get back to normal as soon as possible. We shall, however, continue to answer enquiries but these may not be as speedy as before. Thank you.

Iconel Administration SL: Fake Law Firm Update

For some time now Inside Timeshare has been publishing readers information on Iconel Administration SL, CIF B93705606, a supposed law firm based in Málaga and registered as a company on 8 August 2019. As for the website, so far we have not been able to trace who registered it, when it was registered and when it is due to expire. The links to other dubious “fake law firms” past and present is another area for concern, but it is what they are telling potential clients that is very disturbing.

Director links of
José Miguel Muñoz Cañas

Inside Timeshare has received a recording of a call being made by Judith Saunders from “Iconel Lawyers” to one of our readers. This reader is very sceptical as they have lost considerable sums in the past to various scams including losing thousands to ABC Lawyers and Mark Rowe, which is the subject of the call.

Our reader did ask some very important questions regarding how they are going to get the money back considering that the company is “bankrupt” according to Judith Saunders. Her reply comes after some hesitation, obviously, she was not expecting to be asked such a direct and important question. Her reply after a long hesitation was, to say the least, plausible but still untrue.

According to Judith Saunders, it is “only one company that has gone bankrupt”, it would not mean anything to our reader as his money has been moved around the various Mark Rowe companies and it is those that Iconel are taking to court.

Mark Rowe

She even has a slight pop at the UK Police investigating Mark Rowe, claiming they have no idea about Spanish law or have any jurisdiction as they are all Spanish companies. In a sense that is true, many of the companies are registered as Spanish entities but in Tenerife, which would have jurisdiction, not Málaga. It is also a fact that many other branches of Rowes companies are registered in the UK which would then have jurisdiction.

Somerset & Avon Police

It is also a fact that the Regional Organised Crime Unit of Somerset and Avon Police are working closely with the Tenerife authorities in their investigations into Mark Rowe and his companies. It is also a fact that Mark Rowe is on police bail in the UK.

Another disturbing part of the recording was how Judith Saunders blames the police for allowing Rowe to continue operating despite being under investigation. According to Judith Saunders, Mark Rowe then had time to establish the ABC legal group of companies and more disturbingly ECC, (European Consumer Claims). This is a total fabrication on behalf of Iconel Administration and Judith Saunders.

ECC has nothing to do with Mark Rowe, it is a completely different entity and works alongside and very closely with M1 Legal, which is another of the very few leading and genuine law firms in the field of timeshare law.

Once again, untruths and blatant lies are being used to convince clients to part with substantial sums of money for non-existent court cases and “compensation” which is not even there!
