Last week Inside Timeshare reported on the “Fake” lawyers using the identities of genuine people and law firms to defraud unsuspecting victims of thousands with false court awards. Well, they have struck again, we can also safely say it is the same people that have been behind the long-running fraud of The Litigious Abogados Family. It is not just about the thousands they are stealing from people, it is the use of respectable people and law firms to give them credibility to achieve this, that has taken this FRAUD to a whole new level.
In our previous article “End the Week: The Fake Law Firm Usurping Anothers Good Name”, we showed how they have used photographs taken from websites and the internet of some very prominent people. All to give themselves the credibility to carry out their “SCAM”.
From this, they moved to steal the name and website of a law firm based in Madrid, Adarga Abogados. To the unsuspecting victim, making a search on the internet confirms Adarga Abogados to be a genuine and seemingly respectable law firm, just what the fraudsters want.
Now they have “Usurped” the name of another GENUINE law firm, JR Abogados, based in Madrid and an office in Alclà de Henares. The director of the firm is José Ramón Felipe Condés, a lawyer from the Alcalá de Henares Bar Association (collegiate number 4,108). With a rather impressive Resume:
- Lawyer registered by the Alcalá de Henares Bar Association (nº 4,108)
- Law degree from the University of Alcalá de Henares (1.993 – 1.998)
- Master in Telecommunications Law from the Universidad de Comillas de Madrid ICAI-ICADE
- Master in operating systems and communications from FYCSA (Formación y Consultoría SA)
- Bankruptcy Administrator. Civil and Commercial Mediator
He has also been awarded the following citation for Customer Services.
Genuine Website for JR Abogados:
He himself has been in the news and the story is heartwarming, to say the least, the first link is to Youtube and a TVG interview, the second is a written version of another interview on the same subject.
Given what we have found in a very quick search, it is obvious that many people will be taken in, just what the fraudsters wanted, along with the official and genuine looking court documents, Procurador letters and fake Notaries, they are well on their way to getting your money.
We also have to look at the possible repercussions to the genuine law firm, their reputation being sullied, plastered over the internet and unfortunately believed by some.
Our friends at the TCA did make contact with JR Abogados, who were shocked, to say the least. They categorically denied any involvement in any cases in the field of timeshare, they are also taking the appropriate legal measures.
Moving on to the documents, they are the exact same as those from our previous articles, although there does appear to be a link that confirms our suspicions they are the same outfit, is the reference to S & G Abogados. (See link to previous posts on S&G Abogados).
This firm was highlighted in several articles back in 2019, with “court cases” against various timeshare companies and individuals who were “supposed” to be the directors. Those same cases have been mentioned in the letter from the fakeJR Abogados.
Below are the letter and email from S & G Abogados from 2019, and the letter from the “(FAKE) J R Abogados” letter. They just happen to be the same victim!
Fake Court Documents
They even came up with a very good excuse for the amount being lower than the original case, apparently, it was because their previous “lawyer” didn’t turn up for court.
Well, they wouldn’t would they, if they don’t actually exist!
The audacity of their actions in fraudulently using a reputable law firm and sheer contempt for the people they are stealing from seems to know no bounds.
The email addresses they are using are not linked to the genuine J R Abogados, they are as usual either free email providers or subscription-based, which have probably been opened using false identities. These are:
Fake Contact Details:
Tel: 0800 802 1864
The genuine J R Abogados email is directly linked to their website and is:
Tel: +34 911 289 985
Whatsapp: +34 647 335 243
Once again, this shows how vulnerable timeshare owners are to scams, especially when they have been targeted before, more often than not by the very same people, if not, then by others who have bought your details.
These criminals twist the truth to draw you in, yes there are court cases being won in the Spanish Courts, but unless you have personally instigated those proceedings, then these people are telling you lies. It is as simple as that.
