Over the past few years Inside Timeshare has been highlighting the “FAKE” law firms and notaries which are all part of the Litigious Abogados Family along with our old friends Solutions Group. As we have published before, it appears that Solutions Group, a company that is well known for operating many scams in the past have now found another way of scaring people into paying them. Today we highlight the latest in this long-running scam.
Our readers first encountered Solutions Group many years ago with the promise of a claim against Incentive Leisure Group SLU, DWVC SL and Personal Travel Group SL, companies owned and operated by the late Gary Leigh. At the time they used the email address:
And the website
This company was very prolific at the time and used several names, Simple Solutions, this was part of the Solutions Group registered as XYZ Solutions SL. This company is based in Tenerife and was registered at Avenida Del Claudio Delgado Diaz 101 Las Chafiras San Miguel De Abona 38620. CIF Number B76558519.
According to our readers, it was Solutions Group who passed on their details to the “FAKE” notary, regarding a claim against ILG, DWVC and Personal Travel Group. Obviously, this is a continuation of the scam which our readers got trapped into years ago.
After yet another call they received the following email:
Sent: 16 March 2021 16:05
Subject: Mr & Mrs Names Redacted
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Names Redacted
Further to our telephone conversation of this afternoon. I hereby attach a letter from our head lawyer Mrs Victoria Zeralde, together with a copy of the official court order appointing us.
Please to confirm that your have safe receipt of this email,and as promised I shall telephone you tomorrow with the good news, and to discuss any further questions or queries you may have.
We are aware that the UK is on lockdown, please be advised that it is business as usual for us here in the Canary Islands so please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. We trust you and your family are keeping safe and well during these times.
You will notice that the grammar and English are not that good, especially for an “official”.
So, Charlotte Millington is the Court Trustee, somehow I doubt if a UK national going by the name, would be working as a trustee for the court unless she has lived in Spain for many years and is very very fluent in the language. Not impossible but highly unlikely especially in the Canary islands!
According to the attached letter Orebandel Arm & O SA has been appointed by the Santa Cruz First Instance Court Number 5, and they are very specific with the date and time they were appointed, Friday 12 March at 09:23.
Well, we do know that is a complete fabrication as the courts do not appoint any outside company, let alone one that forges court documents.
According to the letter they have been awarded 32,000€, this is the exact same amount that all our other readers who have been contacted have been awarded. This is very strange indeed as no two clients of DWVC ever paid the same amount for their membership or the amount which they were to receive on the “Cashback” certificate which was supposed to pay for their timeshare which they handed over.
Now the worrying thing in the latest development is the use of Brexit in order to rush the “victim” into paying. We also expect that this will also be a pretext to “extort” even more money from “victims” in the way of unforeseen “taxes and duties”, with the promise of a refund once the case is complete.
According to the letter, now that the UK has left the EU this has “created a significant shock for the International Banking system”. According to Orebandel on the letter signed by Victoria Fita Zeralde, now makes the transfer of funds very complex. Very strange considering that there seems to be no problem with transferring money to the scammers!
This letter is also backed up by yet another forged “Court Document”, which when translated is just full of gobbledegook and gibberish, trying to give the impression of “legal speak”.
This document when imported into another program clearly shows that it is fake, the signatures can clearly be seen as a cut and paste job along with all the “official stamps”.
Orebandel use the email address
When we do a search on the @euorpa.com we come up with the following website which provides email addresses,
so once again an email address not linked to any company website. Their address according to the letter is:
And using the telephone number 0034 822 684 530.
Below are PDF files of the documents sent to our reader including a translation of the Court document.

Once again this does show how very careful you must be when dealing with any cold call with the good news that the courts are holding substantial sums for a case you never knew you had filed.
If you have been contacted by any “law firm or notary” with a similar story and documents then it will be a scam, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK, YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE!
