For some time now Inside Timeshare has been warning our readers of Solutions SL who as we know is also working with the “Fake” law firm CUC Abogados, part of the now large Litigious Abogados Family. Once again one of our regular readers is keeping us up to date with their latest strategy to glean as much money out of unsuspecting timeshare owners. This article will show you how much of a fraud this bunch are perpetrating.
In the latest email from Solutions which is signed by a “lawyer” using the name David Fernando Pérez, of the Grupo Pérez Alonso “law firm”. Neither the named lawyer or law firm show up on any searches, in fact, the name of the lawyer does not even show on the official lawyer’s registration website.
The letter begins, “as you are aware we (the law firm & solutions) attended court on your behalf last Tuesday 25 February and commenced proceedings to recuperate the necessary funds to cover your awarded compensation of 32,000€”.
This email follows on from one our reader received only a few days ago with details of the court case, the problem is the letter named another client and the company that was supposed to be going to court was Incentive Leisure and Personal Travel Group. Our reader has never had any dealing with those companies which were once part of the late Gary Leigh’s businesses, our reader only had dealings with Club la Costa and Club Del Pinto and are no longer members. So it would seem that someone forgot to edit the letter and paste in our reader’s name and timeshare company.
The letter is also full of inaccurate statements such as the court have already made it clear that “the defendants will have no chance to appeal” the decision. Well, that is one fundamental right that has been denied, there is always the right to appeal, fine, the appeal court may reject the appeal but the right remains.
In the next paragraph they go on to say that the “due to the severity of this case and the total compensation owed equating to more than 1 million euros total, should the defendants fail to accrue sufficient funds to cover the compensated amount, a 7 year jail term will apply as per EU law, the judge has ruled”.
Well once again another inaccurate statement, we ask what EU law? Surely it is Spanish law as the case is heard in a Spanish Court!
They also state that a “time-frame of just over 4 weeks has been granted in which the defendants will have to declare and produce evidence of readily available funds”. It also states that another hearing has been scheduled for Monday 30 March 2020.
Wow, this is really fast work, they really must be fantastic lawyers!
Below is a copy of the FAKE court document with 67 names of “clients” removed. When you consider that the charge is 3000€ that is a whopping 201,000€ these crooks have got away with!
The law firm and Solutions will also be submitting requests to the court to begin the seizure of “all known assets of value both here in Spain and throughout Europe”. They will also be requesting the court to embargo (freeze) all known bank accounts.
According to the letter they “the law firm and Solutions” are “very confident of a swift outcome to this matter”, they also state that they expect to have the compensation within a matter of weeks. Once again this really is fantastically fast work.
But, yes there is a but, we now come to the real nitty-gritty of the letter, they want money!
The last paragraph in full is:
“We are aware that not all clients have been able to make payment of our fees as of yet and we ask that should you fall into this category, that you make payment of our fees no later than 10 days after receipt of this email or risk exclusion from our services. To those clients who have paid, you should already be in possession of your receipt”.

So that is it in a nutshell, all fake and just after your money, the unfortunate thing is that those who have paid them have no chance of ever getting their money back, all payments are made by bank transfer into named accounts. Those accounts are emptied very quickly to prevent any “clawback” and new ones opened once they have used one account too often.
If you have had any contact from Solutions SL in Tenerife or any of the “law firms” mentioned, we would like to hear from you, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.
