Welcome to a rather short Thursday article. First, we have a look at news from the courts of two cases. Both companies are very familiar to our pages, Anfi and Silverpoint. We also report on the first information regarding our old friends in Tenerife, The Litigious Abogados Family, who appear to have resurfaced, this time using the name of a genuine law firm.
Our first court report is from the High Court Number 3 of Las Palmas and once again involves Anfi.
This case was originally heard at the Court of First Instance of SBT, where the contract was declared null & void with Anfi being ordered to repay the client 22,574€ plus legal interest and legal fees.
As we have come to expect from Anfi, they once again decided it would be a “great laugh” to delay everything and lodge an appeal with the High Court. Another waste of the clients, lawyers and courts time, not to forget the legal bill for their own lawyers.
The Judges at the High Court, following all other cases and the rulings of the Supreme Court, roundly dismissed and rejected their appeal. The original sentence was confirmed and is now being filed with the Mercantile Court and the Court Appointed Administrator for the payment of the awarded funds.
In Tenerife, the Judge of the Mercantile Court Number 1, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, after examining the contracts has declared them null & void, plus awarding the client 147,420€.
As Silverpoint is now under the Mercantile Court and a Court Appointed Administrator, the client’s lawyers will now file this claim with the Mercantile Court for payment along with all the other claims against Silverpoint which have been found in favour of the clients.
One thing that is similar to both cases is that both companies used the same techniques to avoid payments, both moved money from their accounts to others so when an embargo is placed, nothing is in the accounts for the court to take. Both are being investigated by the authorities for the illegal movement of funds.
In both cases, the clients were represented by lawyers of Canarian Legal Alliance.
So far from the documentation we have received, it appears this is yet another incarnation from our old friends The Litigious Abogados Family, with a new “Procuradores” or “Procurator”, this one is called José Vazques.
It is to this person that the “victim/client” has to pay, the account is in the name of José Motoz Vazquez, the bank is Evo Banco and the IBAN ES30 0239 0806 7526 6701 5925. Any payment being made to a named individual is always a bad sign.
In the letter sent to the “client”, it is purportedly from a law firm in Madrid called Adarga Abogados, along with all the names and bar association numbers of their lawyers.
The website for the law firm which does appear on the letter is
but, the email addresses on the letter are:
These are free email providers such as Hotmail or Gmail, the email address for the genuine law firm is linked to their website.
Inside Timeshare and the TCA are in contact with the genuine law firm with the TCA already having established they have nothing to do with the letter or with any timeshare related claims.
We have seen these people use pictures of genuine people with fictitious names in the past, the most notable of them is the use of the late 39th President of Venezuela and the Ambassador to Argentina. But now they are using a genuine law firms name and their website!
Our inquiries are ongoing and we will have a full report once all the information has been received. In the meantime, if you receive a call, text or email using the name Adarga Abogados, please let us know.
Once again this reinforces the point that you should not accept as genuine any call or correspondence you receive, without first doing your own due diligence. If you are not sure how to go about this, please contact Inside Timeshare and we will help you determine if they are genuine or not.
Do you have a timeshare you purchased in Spain, is your contract legal under Spanish Law, if you would like further information on this and your legal rights and options, please use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will get back to you.
