Hellenic Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Monster Clients Targeted

At the start of this year Inside Timeshare published an article on the latest scam which was then targeting Eze Group clients, only this was not coming from Spain but Greece. Clients were being contacted supposedly by The Hellenic Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, well, they seem to have switched their targets, it is now clients of companies owned and operated by Mark Rowe.

The scam is just as before, the clients are contacted by an unsolicited email claiming their case which is part of a “Class Action Lawsuit”. According to the email which from Panagiotis Chatzitheofanos, another familiar name and is signed by none other than Stavros Mpotsari who we have already mentioned in the previous articles, the case was originally heard in another “European member” state, where the “initial crime” took place. But unfortunately, the assets had already been moved so there was no “compensation” for the claimants.

The email address being used is [email protected]

Now for the good news, thanks to the “tenacity” of the lawyer who worked on this clients behalf he found a link between several new companies formed in Greece. We just wonder who the lawyer is?

Well, our guess is it is yet another name linked to Hellenic Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs and dubious companies in Spain, namely Platinum Services and Administration SL, Litigation Services SL and a name from the past Greenges 2005 SL. All are using the name of Jose Lara Cabello, who we do know is a lawyer registered with the Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Málaga.

Inside Timeshare has in the past published his name, emails have been sent to him to verify if he is aware that his name is being used or if he is working with these companies, no reply has ever been received. Again Inside Timeshare leaves you the reader to draw your own conclusions.

With the email, there was also an “official court summary” with English translation, which begins with “The Honourable High Judge Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos sited at court room 1a of the Court of Cassation, chosen by the Cabinet of the Council of State under the Articles 87-100A of the constitution”.

There is a Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos, he is actually a very eminent criminologist who was also at one time the Minister of Justice, Transparency and Human Rights, being appointed after being elected an MP in 2015 Professor of criminal law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki’s Law School and is also Vice President of one of Greece’s largest drug rehabilitation and social integration clinics. We wonder if he knows his name is being used?

See link to Wikipedia entry for Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos

Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos

The companies named as appearing in court are:

Now we do know that these companies which are part of the Mark Rowe “empire” (albeit crumbling), are under investigation in Tenerife and the UK, but as yet no case has been brought, which makes a mockery of the claim made in the email.

The Greek version of the “summary” includes the Signature of  Dr Nikos Paraskevopoulos which you can see in the PDF below, we have also found a letter from the good Dr to the European Commissioner for Human Rights with his signature. They are very obviously different.

Now considering that Eze Group were originally targeted by the Spanish companies we mentioned and also by Hellenic Republic, then the switch to Monster clients, along with the name of the Spanish lawyer Jose Lara Cabello, it is now looking like this “fraud” is being perpetrated by the same people. The links are too close to be just a coincidence, again we leave you the reader to decide!

If you have been contacted by any of the companies mentioned, especially Hellenic Republic please use our contact page and let us know.

It’s Friday and the End of Another Week

Welcome to the last article for this week and what a week it has been, the number of emails being received from readers who have had dealing in the past with Eze Group and ABC Legal and ABC Lawyers has been huge. All are coming up with the same story and unfortunately, some have been taken in and have now lost up to several thousands of pounds. We also give a round-up of the legal news from the courts around Spain this week.

We begin with the readers emails regarding Eze Group, ABC Legal and ABC Lawyers, as we have reported on these pages over the last year or so and especially recently, there are a number of companies that have emerged who are targeting the “victims” of the above companies.

All are very similar in that they inform the client that they have a case in court or the money is held by the court waiting to be claimed. The only problem is there is a fee to pay to either have the money released by the courts or for other “legal” fees such as translations.

The most disturbing fact about these companies is the links they have with each other and also with past “fake” law firms. The companies are:

O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions SL

Inconel Administration SL

Platinum Services and Administration SL

Litigation Services SL

The fact is the director of Platinum and O1C is Jose Miguel Muñoz Cañas along with the director of Litigation Services Calle Guden Daniel Ernesto are very much linked with past “scam” companies on the Costa del Sol:

Fastline Legal Services SL, Greenges 2005 SL and are also known to have been involved with the most notorious “fake” law firm Ramirez and Ramirez, along with the ex-director of Platinum Sharifi Dadvar Mahmoud Reza were also involved with other very dubious companies from the past:

Fuengirola Servicios 2002 SL

Key Property Town Advisory (KPTA)

The Justice Group Direct

Other factors are the shared addresses of these companies plus the fact they all come up with a very similar story, “we have been appointed by the courts”, funny thing is that is exactly what Ramirez and Ramirez said years ago!

See links at the bottom of the page for previous articles.

On Monday we published the news from the Supreme Court that they had rejected an appeal by Anfi on a sentence that went against them at the Court of First Instance and the High Court. This news confirmed that the Supreme Court which has issued 130 rulings on the timeshare law was not going to act any differently than before. They have ruled and set the laws which came into effect in January 1999, which needed to be tested, are now set in stone. This was a great blow to Anfi but a great result for the client and their lawyers.

On the 11 March, the news broke that Marriott who had lost a case at the Court of First Instance in Palma de Mallorca had lodged an appeal. This was then swiftly followed by Marriott VOLUNTARILY paying a considerable sum into the court in accordance with the sentence. It is believed that they have also withdrawn the appeal, we are awaiting confirmation of this.

This could also be in line with the announcement back in 2018 that they had set aside $16.3 million to cover litigation costs as they admitted losing in the Spanish courts. This was published in Market Exclusive.

This morning the news arrived of yet another bank transfer as ordered by the courts, this time it involves Anfi.

Due to the work of the Provisional Execution Enforcement Team of Canarian Legal Alliance, one German client is about to receive over 68,000€ plus his contract is now null and void leaving him timeshare free.

No doubt as the day goes on there will be more news coming from the courts which Inside Timeshare will publish next week.

All that remains is to say have a great weekend and remember to do your homework before engaging with any company that promises the world to you.

End of the Week and Another Fake Firm Emerges

Welcome to the final article for this week, today we highlight yet another new “claims” company that is contacting clients who have dealt with other companies, Inconel Administration SL. As you will see this new company has some very interesting links. We also report on the latest in the Anfi saga with a very interesting article published in Canarias7 a news periodical that is published in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. It follows the problems being faced by Hermanos Santana Cazorla SL, the 50% and Golden Shareholder of Anfi.

Over the past weeks Inside Timeshare has been reporting on several “claims” companies who have been targeting members/clients of Eze Group, well, it seems it is now the turn of clients of ABC Legal and ABC Lawyers.

Inconel Administration SL was registered with the Mercantile Registry on the 8 August 2019, so it is only just 7 months old, the record is also missing the CIF Number. Their registered address is:

C/ Coronel Ripollet Edificio Santos Rein 3a 29640 Fuengirola Málaga

An address we are very familiar with as it is also the address used by Platinum Services and Administration SL, another company that we have highlighted and is also behind the Eze Group scams.

But it is not just the address that is familiar, it is the director of the company that caught our attention, Jose Miguel Muñoz Cañas, who is also the director O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions who are also behind the Eze Group scam.

Muñoz is also associated with some of the older and very dubious companies which operated out of Fuengirola years ago. These are:

Fastline Legal Services SL, Greenges 2005 SL, Rapid Reclaims SL.

This person is also known to have ties with one of the biggest scammers on the Costa del Sol since the infamous Tony Muldoon, this was Ramirez and Ramirez one of the first and biggest of the fake law firms.

There is a website but so far we have not been able to find out when it was registered and who by, the message comes up as it is either an invalid address or unsupported (very suspicious). The website is:

http://www.inconel.es/

Now according to the website under the section lawyers they claim:

At present our lawyers have more than 1000 cases going through the courts of Málaga.

We have had successful prosecutions and convictions against the following companies.

MacAnthony Realty International S.L, Incentive Leisure Group S.L, Instant Access S.A, Blue Chip, Dream Homes WorldWide.

So, over 1000 cases and won cases against companies that are no longer operating such as MacAnthony which has not been around since 2010. This is very impressive considering that the company has only been registered for 7 months!

If you have been a client of ABC Legal, ABC Lawyers or any of the other Mark Rowe companies please be aware that this is a scam to fleece you of your cash.

To end this week we bring you the latest news regarding the Cazorla’s and Anfi.

As we all know Anfi is 50% owned by the company Hermanos Santana Cazorla SL who also hold the Golden Share and control the board of directors. Canarias7 which is a news periodical in Gran Canaria published on the 5 March 2020 on the financial woes of the Cazorla’s.

It appears that the Mercantile Court has admitted for processing the request for the declaration of necessary insolvency, in other words, they may just be going into liquidation.

This was submitted by Isla Marina SL who claim that Hermanos Sanatana Cazorla SL owes 47 million euros for unpaid loans along with other debts.

It is also noted that the Cazorla company also owes Ifa Canarias (the other 50% partner in Anfi) 9.3 million euros and 4.6 million to Sparebank as guarantor of the syndicated loan were also named in the court.

You can read the full story at the link below.

That is all for this week, join us again next week for more on the world of timeshare. Have a great weekend and please be aware of the “scam” callers.
