Today Inside Timeshare has received an enquiry from a concerned timeshare owner who was contacted by SG Abogados. They have told him that he has a claim and that they will represent him on a no win no fee basis. This looks like another incarnation of the fake law firms Inside Timeshare has dubbed Litigious Abogados family.
The website is:
This was registered on 19 July 2019 and is set to expire on 19 July 2020, so only registered for one year. The registrant is hidden by privacy protection, so it is not possible to find out who is behind the website.
Yesterday a new name to the ever growing Litigious Abogados family was named, Amador Galeca Abogados, the website was born on 18 July 2017, so is only two months old. Yet according to their website they have over 15 years presence on the net, and they claim to have been a law firm for over 25 years.
The website is exactly the same as all the others that have come before, the only difference is in the photographs and names of the lawyers. This new website now shows some new faces with names that are either variations of previous ones or newly made up.
The address they give on the website is very familiar as it has been used before, Calle de V. Sanz, N14, 16, 38002 Santa Cruz de Tenerife, (it is actually Calle de Valentin Sanz). Number 14 does have a plaque on the wall by the door for an Abogado, but it is not this one here. (We just wonder if this lawyer knows his address is being used).
We will hazard a guess here, but we suspect that the story is going to be along the lines of all the other members of this fake family, your timeshare company or resort is about to be taken to court, for a fee you can also be included in this case. We wonder if the Procurador, who will need to be paid, is one of those we have seen before, or whether a new name will be used, no doubt that will be answered within the next few weeks, as other readers contact us with new information.
If the past antics are anything to go by, within weeks of paying the money, the “client” will receive a fake copy of the court sentence, along with a photocopy of a Banesto cheque with the awarded amount printed with their name on it. (Remember Banesto has not existed since 2012).
There will also be an accompanying letter stating in English that the director of the company pleaded guilty to all charges, (anyone fancy a wager that it will be Keith Baker or Keith Balker). You will then be asked to pay 21% of the awarded amount as tax to have the cheque released, which will arrive by post. Only problem is that it will never arrive, the envelope will be open, a letter from the court will be there but no cheque.
Now we go to stage three of this very clever operation, you will receive from another company a letter stating they have been appointed by the court, they are to investigate a Romanian gang who stole and cashed a cheque with your name on it. They will also pursue the bank to recover the money for you, you only have to pay them 10% of the cheque value. As we say this is a very clever ongoing sting. So far we don’t yet know what happens next, we have not come across anyone who has made it to stage four. But we do suspect that in order to get the money that has been recovered, another “TAX” will need to be paid.
These claims always sound fantastic, the amounts of money they promise you and in such a short space of time are designed to play on your emotions, then slowly drain away all your money before you realise what has happened.
Our only advice is if you are contacted by any company that tells you a case is about to go to court against your timeshare company or resort, then with a fee you can be included,
STOP, THINK AND DO YOUR HOMEWORK.
If you are unsure how to check any company that makes these promises, or just need confirmation, contact Inside Timeshare and we will point you in the right direction.
