Yesterday we published our own tribute to Captain Sir, Tom Moore, the response from readers to this post was remarkable. It certainly shows how much he has affected the lives of so many. Today we publish a very strange comment received by Inside Timeshare on what is clearly a “fake” law firm operating out of Mexico and targeting US timeshare owners. We also have a look at the antics of our old Friends Anfi, it has not been a very good week for them, legally or financially.
We begin with a comment received today by Inside Timeshare, it is about the “fake” law firm Ferrer Abogados y Asociados, which have been operating out of Mexico. In our original article, their website was due to expire in September 2020, this has now been extended to September 2021.
According to this person who claims to be Joan Maynard, this is a legitimate law firm and has won her case and paid out. This is the message.
If I could remove the above post I would. Ferrer and Eduardo Rocha Nunez came through for me I received the proceeds of my court judgment. It was an ordeal and a roller coaster ride but the final result was very positive.
If you have the endurance stick with Eduardo. He’s an excellent lawyer.
Well, our evidence all points to the fact they are “fake” and just “scamming” US timeshare owners.
Let us look at the facts.
The website was only registered for 2 years.
Now, why would a successful and genuine law firm only register their website for two years, then renew it for only another 1 year?
The registrant is hidden by “privacy protection”, so we have no idea who is behind the website.
Again if this was a genuine and successful law firm, why are the owners hiding behind “privacy protection”?
The website has no details of the law firm, no company registration, no lawyers registration or registration of any other legal entities which may govern law firms?
On most company websites we usually find at the bottom of the page or in the menu the following:
Terms & Conditions;
In the letter sent to a “potential” client or victim, this law firm also claims they have been appointed by the FGR or “Fiscalía General de la República” which replaced the old Attorney General Office. Now, we cannot see an official body “farming” out investigations or “client details” to a third-party law firm.
It is also strange that almost 7 months after publishing this person suddenly comes out of the woodwork to claim the wonderful news that this “law” firm has won her case and that she has received her money!
It is also strange that considering how long this article has been circulating, no contact from the law firm has been received by Inside Timeshare. If we were wrong, we are sure that they would have been in touch with evidence to refute our article.
Then we have the email addresses for the Bank of Mexico which one “client” received with an “Account Statement”, the email came from:
The email used by the Bank of Mexico is attached to its website and is:
There is a subtle difference between them, the genuine has the dot between banxico and org, this can be easily overlooked, we nearly missed it.
So just on this little bit of evidence, it all points to a fake, we suspect that this person may be involved with the scam and is using this as a way to refute our article. As we told “Joan Maynard” if this is genuine show us the proof, show “genuine” court documents, show the “genuine” transfer of funds from the courts etc.
The full article is in the link below, we are sure that you will agree with our conclusions once you have read it.
We now move to Anfi and their bad and expensive week.
As we all know, Anfi appeals every defeat in the Court of First Instance to the High Court, we also know that in all cases the High Court dismisses and rejects the appeal confirming the original judgement and sentence.
In three cases so far this week, this has been the case, the first was on Monday and involved a client from the UK. Their case was originally won at the Court of First Instance which Anfi immediately appealed against.
They have now received over 10,000€ into their account after the inevitable rejection of the appeal. This payment has also come from the embargoed “tax” payment Anfi was supposed to receive.
The second dismissal of an appeal by Anfi has now confirmed that a Norwegian client is repaid over 50,000€ plus legal interest and costs. The client’s lawyers are now in the process of retrieving the money from Anfi.
In our third case, again a Norwegian client, the High Court has confirmed the original judgement and sentence issued by the Court of First Instance. This court awarded over 90,000€ plus legal interest and costs.
On confirming the original sentence the High Court has also awarded Anfi to pay the “costs” of the appeal process. Obviously, this is the court now sanctioning Anfi for these frivolous appeals, something we are no doubt going to see a lot more of.
All these cases were prepared and conducted on behalf of the clients by Canarian Legal Alliance.
That is all for today, if you have any comments, questions or would like to know what your legal options are, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.
