Our regular readers will be aware that we have been following the many changes in name for almost 3 years, well here is another new name for you, Legalidad Abogados SA, with the website:
Registered on 20 May 2018
The websites is as usual exactly the same as all the others except for the new names and photographs of the lawyers, which no doubt are photographs of genuine lawyers taken from the internet. We will be trying to identify the genuine people as we have done in the past.
The company apparently was was founded by Manuel Midan Embalori (photo below), on Monday 20th July 1990, which was in fact a Friday! They have the CIF Number (National ID Number), is A30458629, which is again not genuine.
The lawyers are named as:
There address is one that week have seen before, although genuine, they are not there:
Legalidad Abogados S.A.
Freephone: 0800 802 1938
Tenerife Tel: 0034 822 684 515
So what are Legalidad Abogados doing?
Obviously it will be the same ploy they have used in the past, your timeshare company and the director is being taken to court, for a payment to the Procurador you can be included in the case. The Procurador is named as Jesia Elisabeta Eliaz and the money is to be paid into her Bankia account.
Now the case our lucky reader was to be involved in was to be heard at the end of July, this involved his timeshare at Island Village and the director is named as one Mark Rowe, who for those regulars to our pages will know is not a director of Island Village but owns companies such as Hollywood Marketing, The Monster Group of companies, ABC Lawyers to name just a few.
No doubt within days our reader would have received the wonderful news that Mark Rowe pleaded guilty, which somehow no one will ever believe, Mark Rowe pleading guilty!
We also wonder which gang will steal the cheque and cash it, we have had Romanians and Ukrainians, we have heard that the new gang are Croatians!
Whoever they are, there is no legal law firm called Legalidad Abogados, there are genuine lawyers with those names, there is no case case at court and there will definitely not be a cheque sent from the court!
It will be the same old “Fraud” we have seen in the past, don’t fall for their story, the documentation looks real, but it is all fake.
If you have been contacted by this or any other firm with a similar story, then beware, unless you have personally instructed a Spanish law firm to act on your behalf then you do not have a case in court.
The courts do not instruct any company to contact timeshare owners, or to act on the courts behalf. They do not send out cheques and will definitely not instruct another company to investigate a stolen and cashed cheque.
Remember doing your homework, just like our reader, will save you a lot of money. If you are not sure about any company that contacts you or even one you have found on the internet, then use our contact page and we will point you in the right direction.
