Start the Week: SG Abogados Update

Welcome to another week with Inside Timeshare, today we bring you the latest information on the “FAKE” law firm from Tenerife SG Abogados which we have identified as being part of the Litigious Abogados Family. Once again timeshare owners are being contacted with “news” that their timeshare company and resort is being taken to court and they can be part of the process to get back their money.

The latest information supplied by one of our regular readers (confirming what we already know) who was contacted regarding his ownership with Diamond Resorts and the Royal Oasis Club, who are being taken to court for mis-selling and fraud. According to SG Abogados,  this will involve a so-called “director” a Mr Barras.

Other names and email address has also been supplied (again confirming previous reports), these are supposedly the UK associates, Andrew Hartley and Richard Lamont, both using the following email address [email protected] which is another free email provider.

According to SG Abogados, they cannot lose the case and will work on a “no win no fee” basis, but there will be “Procurator fees” to lodge the case at court. Court documents will be forthcoming once the case is lodged. As we already know from past encounters these documents will be very good forgeries. When questioned about the fees the caller was very vague indeed.

The latest contact was by normal post with a covering letter and supposedly “court” documents demanding money. There is also a separate sheet with the bank details of the procurator, along with a demand for 389€. No doubt the bank details will be to a named person and not a company.

Our reader has already been in contact with Diamond Resorts and was informed that there are no cases against them in Tenerife especially by this law firm, so this confirms that it is all a scam.

It would also appear that another of the incarnations of this group of fraudsters Legalizalos is still operating and the name of another procurator has come up, Olga Gema Kaya, with the website:

https://procuradores-kaya.com

This website was registered on 8 June 2019 and is set to expire on 8 June 2020, as usual, the registrant is hidden on privacy protection and registered in Toronto. They use the email [email protected] which again is not linked to the website but another free email provider. No doubt there will be more new “procurators” come to our attention soon.

The link below is from May and shows a list of all the “fake” law firms and procurators right from the very beginning.

If you get a call from a “law firm” based in Tenerife, with the news that your timeshare company or resort is being taken to court and you can be added to the list of clients in the case, especially on a “no win no fee”, then contact Inside Timeshare so we can publish warning to others.

Remember, unless you have personally instructed a law firm to carry out a case on your behalf, then it is going to be a scam. This “team” are very professional and it is a very clever and sophisticated fraud. The “court” documents they provide are very good forgeries and unless you are familiar with Spanish legal documents they will appear very convincing.

Do your homework before you engage with any company that calls with such good news.

Litigious Abogados Family: New Names Added

Over the past few years Inside Timeshare has been reporting on the changing names of “FAKE” law firms based in Tenerife. We have dubbed them The Litigious Abogados Family, a family that has been growing at a very fast rate, with a new name and website every three to four months. This obviously keeps them one step ahead of the authorities.

The latest incarnations are just a couple of months apart, with the Legalizalos website registered on 14 March 2019, with an expiry date of 14 March 2020, the registrar of the website is again hidden by privacy protect.

According to the home page, the company was founded on Tuesday 30 May 1989, by Manuel Lamaconio Congana with the CIF Number A87531643 which again appears to be a fake as it does not come up on any searches.

Manuel Lacaconio Congana

They also show the usual photographs of lawyers and contact staff, along with some very dubious looking names, Jeromat Golebat Garcia, Juan Colabat Florevo, Armando Suletare Dolenas and Alejandra Olada Volindat.

Then on the 5 May 2019, the next in the family appears, Legal Izalos, with the website

Again, the website was registered on 5 May 2019, with an expiry date of 5 May 2010 with the registrant again hidden by privacy protect.

Both websites are the same from layout, logos names and photographs of the “lawyers”, also the same is the CIF Number A87531643, along with the founder Manuel Lamaconio Congana who set up the firm on Tuesday 30 May 1989.

Both are also using the same address: Calle Dr Miguel López González, Número 4 38003 Santa Cruz de Tenerife, along with the same telephone number 0034 822 686 029 and email address:

[email protected]

which is not linked to the website but is from a free email address provider.

There is no need to go through the pitch as it is the same one we have reported right from the start, but again it sounds very convincing with the consumers timeshare company about to go to court. This once again is backed up by some very convincing documents including very good fake court documents.

One thing we do know the outcome will be in the consumer’s favour and they will be awarded a huge amount by the court, they will then have to pay “TAX” to have the money released. This will be a cheque posted to them from Tenerife, but we do know from experience that the envelope will be open and the cheque missing.

In comes the next company, who are investigating the missing cheque, which, just happened to be “cashed” by a gang of either Ukranians, Romanians or some other East European gang. Oh yes, there will be an upfront fee for this to happen, as if it will!

This is a very sophisticated and well planned out fraud, the constant change of names and websites make it very difficult for the authorities to trace the perpetrators and so it continues. The use of official logos, registrations, very good fake court documents and the great story with the promise of receiving huge amounts are all very convincing, so convincing many have been taken in. Unfortunately they have later found that they have been subject to a very clever scam.

For the full history of all these “FAKE” law firms and procurators, use the search box and type in Litigious Abogados, this will bring up every article where they have been mentioned. As you will see they go back at least 3 years.

Remember do your homework because
