Litigious Abogados Family

Update: CUC Abogados & Solutions

Further information has been received by Inside Timeshare from another one of our readers regarding the supposed claims made by Solutions SL against Incentive Leisure Group and Personal Travel Group. According to the correspondence they have received once again CUC Abogados one of the new incarnations of the “FAKE” law firms of the Litigious Abogados Family is again implicated.

In the first letter dated on 21 August 2019 and signed by Amelia Inara Calibar on behalf of Solutions SL, our reader’s case after a “lengthy procedure” has been concluded and the sum 32,000€ has been awarded as “compensation”.

The letter goes on to explain that it is usual in these circumstances to appoint a “collection agency” which they liken to a “Bailiff” in the UK to enforce the judgement. It goes on to say that the “collection agency” is there to ensure that “you as an individual are paid out before other claimants”. Apparently, this “agency acts as a mediator between the client, the courts and the defendant’s lawyers.

The next paragraph goes on to explain “The collection agency has the legal status, supremacy and pre-eminence to demand that the Courts proceed to liquidate company assets and also the company directors’ personal assets and bank accounts if need be”.

Well, I wonder how they are going to do that?

As we know the director was Gary Peter Leigh and he was killed in a cycling accident in Marbella in 2010 and his companies had also been wound up in the UK in 2011.

The next letter signed by Julia Garcia from the collections department of Solutions explains the payment plan that has been put into place. That the claimant should also submit a request to the court to “query the state of your pay-out”, this should be done every three months. It then goes on to say that “you may wish to employ the services of a para-legal for a nominal fee”, this paralegal will attend court on behalf of the claimant to submit the “appropriate requests”.

There then follows several “fake” court documents to back up these claims.

Enter CUC Abogados, they are the “collection agency” supposedly appointed and endorsed by the court to “enforce” the payment, but for this, there is a fee of 1,920€. This letter explains that they are affiliated to several “prestigious” bodies such as the Fiscal Economists Advisors Register (REAF) and also claim to have the “status of Social Collaborator” to the Agencia Tributaria or tax office.

The letter is signed by David Lomerz Utierras from the Departmento De Recaudación, there is then a separate page which gives the details on the bank account to have the money transferred to:

Bank: LaCaixa

Address: Av Menceyes 15 3820 S Cristobal La Laguna Tenerife

IBAN: ES73 2100 6745 4602 0013 1211

BIC: CAIXESBBXXX

Beneficiary: David Lomerz Utierros

Address: Edificio Percy Plaza De Candelabaria 38002 Santa Cruz Tenerife

Telephone: 0034 822 680 798

Inside Timeshare is just wondering how this bank account has been opened, the name does not look genuine and who in their right mind would open up a bank account for a fraud such as this in their real name? That leads us to believe that false and forged documents such as passports have been used.

As usual, Inside Timeshare warns all our readers and all timeshare owners that these type of “fake” law firms and claims companies are on the increase. Court documents can be easily forged and unless you are very familiar with these types of documents, you can easily be fooled into believing they are genuine.

If you have been contacted by any company and received documents that may look genuine, use our contact page and get in touch, Inside Timeshare will help you to find the truth.

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.
