Our apologies for not publishing anything yesterday, the schedule was somewhat disrupted for urgent research, the results of this will be published in due course. During the searching of our archives for information required, we came across a few lists. These contained the names of the fake law firms, procurators, notaries and others who have appeared on our pages over the past years. By far the most prolific were those associated with The Litigious Abogados Family.
Some of these have only appeared on our numerous warning lists due to their associations, others had articles running for weeks. Our first selection covers 31 fakes, 24 associated with The Litigious Abogados Family, 5 with no record and 2 with articles of their own.
We begin with B Olmo Associados, they first graced our pages in December 2018 and were apparently based in Madrid. They used the address:
Their website which is no longer available was:
If you needed any proof these were fakes then this is it, unfortunately, this does not help those who did not heed the warnings and believed them. One reader who brought them to our attention did pass on our findings of them and the reply they received was published on 24 April 2020. This reply was further proof of the scam.
It seems that you embed us in the same category as those of others who cheat money essential methods of cajoling people who do not understand what it is about. We can not and must not accept this.
We are a serious recognized law firm whose registered holder of the Bar of Madrid, which you yourself have been able to ascertain.
We can not and must not accept that you give us guidelines how the transfer must be done to thy favors.
First because the contract for transfer is given by the Court and not by us. Second, the Court will this contract in any case give without payment of the 9.2% legal fees he had received.
If you really want to be 100% sure that it will be transferred to you allocated amount of EUR 49152.98 to you is, as you already knew, the only way to pay the statutory 9.2% amounting to 4522.07 euros in the Escrow Holding Court.
In case you do not want to do this, we owe it to the Court to indicate that YOU (clients name) to perform this payment after the Court Your file will be closed and you thereby further has no rights to use your timeshare and other recoveries.
Today after 16:00 we will contact you by phone you (if you want to be as polite phone recording)
and we will ask your any further explanation.
Very polite letter don’t you think?
This FAKE Law firm is also another that used the name of an unsuspecting genuine lawyer, the registration details they gave on the website linked to a female lawyer whose name was only very partially similar. Again more proof of fraud in the making.
The next one which appeared was Banco de España, unfortunately, it is not or will not be the last time the name of the Bank of Spain is used.
Now, this particular Fake did not have a website, but they did communicate via email and also gave out a telephone number. The email was
A Gmail account for a national Bank, come on, that is a bit too obvious!
Then the telephone number:
Yes it is Spanish, but it is a mobile number and I very much doubt that any “official” for the Bank of Spain would be communicating via mobile.
The scam involved supposed court cases against a large list of companies, many of them were at the time in the news after extensive police raids. The full list is:
European Finance Solutions, EFS, Excalibur, Level 9 Resolutions SL, Sun Travel International, Half Moon Holdings, Principle Travel, Simple Timeshare Sales, Freewall Solutions, End Vacation, Iberian Dream Homes, Holiday Rentals Direct, Breakaway Vacation, CMC Accounts, Selling Time, Timeshare Resale, Emerald Rock Holdings, Blue Chip, Blue Diamond, Fast Line, etc”.
The more their email went on the more you could see it was a scam, quoting “laws” which don’t exist, tax payments required before the compensation can be paid out to non-Spanish residents and a whole host more.
They even had the cheek to warn about giving credit card details away or doing bank transfers, yet they would be requiring payment very shortly.
The other point which really hit home that it was a scam was their long tirade against Alberto Garcia formerly of Mindtimeshare. This really did make many laugh, OK, Inside Timeshare was no fan of his, but the accusations were so childish.

Some of the above are suspected of being linked to The Litigious Abogados Family, but little about them could be found at the time, so they were archived.
These may have disappeared, but the people behind them are still perpetrating their scams, they have changed their names and sometimes their methods, as we have constantly seen with The Litigious Abogados Family. Just from the short list above we have seen 24 different incarnations of their fake lawyers, procuradores and notaries.
Looking at these names from the past should remind you all of how careful you have to be when it comes to cold callers, unsolicited emails and texts. Don’t take what they say for granted, do your own checking or get in touch with Inside Timeshare.
