Start the Week: Playing Catchup

Firstly apologies for the lack of articles over the past couple of weeks, this has been due to medical issues and the strong medication that has been required. Today we give you a quick update on the liquidations of Azure in Malta, we also highlight yet another new “fake” law firm which is part of the fakes known as the Litigious Abogados family.

As we know several of the Azure companies in Malta are going into liquidation, the appointed Joint Liquidators (JL’s) are Wesley Edwards and Barry Lynch, both from the company CVR Global (B.V.I.) Limited. This company is registered in the Territory of the British Virgin Islands (No. 1875694). Registered office: Jayla Place, 2nd Floor, PO Box 216 Road Town Tortola British Virgin Islands VG1110.

They are in the process of informing members that they are in negotiations with several unrelated companies to take over the management of the “clubs”. This is to ensure that members do not lose what they have purchased.

We also know that the shareholders of the resorts are also involved in this process and they have already stated that they will do their utmost to protect members.

Now, this is not the story that many of our readers are being told by the various cold calling companies contacting them. Once again the use of scare tactics claiming that if they (the member) does not act now by cancelling their membership and making a “claim” for “compensation” they will lose everything.

Below is a PDF copy of the letter being sent out by the JL’s, as you can see they are being very open about this matter and are keeping members informed as and when further information is available.

As usual, the news of a company going into liquidation sparks a frenzy of cold calls by companies jumping on the bandwagon with a lot of misinformation, so please beware!

We now move to the latest incarnation of the Litigious Abogados family, Torcaz Abogados, they have the website:

Which is almost identical to all the previous websites, just a few minor changes. The website was registered on 11 March 2020 and is due to expire on 11 March 2021, so only registered for 1 year. This does seem very strange considering that they claim to have been established as a law firm on 1 September 1994. The CIF number they show A43663289 is also as all the previous ones a fake.

The founder is named as Fernando Olawza Garcia, there is only one problem: the photograph of Fernando shown on the website is actually Judge Dana Makoto Sabraw, for the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.

So another one to add to the list of identified photographs stolen from the web, these have included the late 39th President of Venezuela and the Azerbaijan Ambassador to Argentina. We have yet to identify the other “lawyers” pictured, but no doubt they will be found soon.

These are the lawyers shown on the website:

The Modus Operandi has changed very little, they are still using fake court documents and have used official logos on their letters. The main difference is what they are initially charging to get your case registered, obviously, there will be more charges as the case goes on.

Payment is required by bank transfer and according to the letterhead the payment is made to Armando Orebandel Jurados & Notarios, but as you can see the account is not in the name of the company but to a named individual, Paulo Rosso Vearns. This should set all your alarm bells ringing.

If you have been contacted by any company regarding your timeshare or with the great news that you have been awarded money held by the courts, please use our contact page and we will get back to you. Do not pay them anything until you have done your homework,

Once again we apologise to all our readers for our absence and we will be getting back to normal with more news and information on the murky world of timeshare.
