Yet Another New Fake Law Firm Appears in Tenerife

Only last week Inside Timeshare published details of a new “FAKE” law firm based in Tenerife, SG Abogados (see link below) which as we pointed out is part of the Litigious Abogados family we have highlighted over the past 3 years. Today we publish another “FAKE” law firm from this family of “FAKES”, CUC Abogados.

The website is identical to the one used by SG Abogados and almost identical to all the past websites used. This one was only registered on 12 August 2019 so is only a month old and is due to expire on 12 August 2020. As usual, the registrant is hidden under privacy protection.

According to their home page, the firm Caneillo Utierros Ciusapi was founded by Mariano Manac Caneillo on Friday 20 November 1992 (very specific date), they show the CIF Number A21903488, which is a fake fiscal registration number.

The address they give is: 

Edificio Percy Plaza de Candelaria 38002 Santa Cruz Tenerife.

With the telephone numbers:

Tel. 0034822680798

Freephone 08009202491

They give the email as:

[email protected]

Which as we know is a free email provider.

Once again they also show photographs of all their lawyers and contact staff, these, as usual, have been downloaded from the internet and genuine law firms websites.

The founding lawyers are,  Mariano Manac Caneillo, David Lomerz Utierros and Chimmo Hernandez Ciusapi.

The other lawyers are, Alberto Faltaso Antolar, Amador Kirtabla Moltolas, Antonio Deleagao Raimo, Francisco Abbialet, Francisco Lubretan Terbilas, Juan Alonso Drialz, Miguel Spinellase, Ricardo Lankmonde and Raquel Hernandez Poza.

The legal secretary is named as Carlota Dertlan Etumalan with the secretary being Manuela Leguta Moharlo.

So far Inside Timeshare has identified 4 of those shown and they are all genuine lawyers from an eminent law firm based in Montevideo Uraguay.

The founder Mariano Manac Caneillo is, in fact, Carlos Alfedo Peña Clara

One of the other founders Chimmo Hernandez Ciusapi is identified as Pablo Bragard Cooper.

Alberto Faltaso Antolar is identified as Carlos Peña Rachetti.

Ricardo Lankmonde identified as Juan Martin Sapelli Sienra.

The secretary Manuela Leguta Moharlo is identified as Maria Sienra Reyes.

All these are from the Rachetti law firm in Uraguay and are being used illegally, below is a picture of the CUC Abogados team and also the team from Rachetti law firm.

The genuine lawyers from Rachetti

This time our information is that they have been handed cases by another company which had previously scammed a client. They have been charged with collecting the money from the original case which the court has awarded a substantial amount of money. Problem is the company that was found guilty has not been in existence for around 4 years as they were closed down by the UK authorities.

As with all these “FAKE” law firms, the story is very plausible, all they are wanting is your money, they are not genuine lawyers they are fraudsters pure and simple.

If you have been contacted by any firm with a story of compensation or that your timeshare company is about to or has been taken to court, use our contact page and Inside Timeshare will help you to find out if they are actually genuine or just a bunch of criminal out for your cash.

    Why doesn’t the Spanish Government do something about these thieves.

    I have been dealing with Solutions for over 7 years. They did manage to get me a partial refund for my original purchase of Time share of around £4k so when Julia Garcia contacted me again about 3 years ago to say they were taking the company to court I agreed to be a ‘participant’. Since then I have made at least two payments by Bank transfer to a person, not a company which did indeed raise alarm bells and when I queried it with Julia she said that they were genuine and that they had already helped me before so I went along with it. I have now been informed that we are to be awarded a very large sum of money, way larger that our initial investment. To receive the claim we have to go through the collection agency – CUC Abogados!. We have to pay almost 2000 euros. So far I have paid out almost £1k so am reluctant to pay anymore as we have only ever had one official typed letter and I have always been suspicious of the lack of a paper trail. I will not continue to proceed with this claim now after reading your article. It was nice to dream of my nice new kitchen but we live and learn. I feel sick with anger at the scammers but furious with myself for falling for it.

      Hi Nicky, These are very professional fraudsters, the whole thing is a very clever and sophisticated fraud. They know how to manipulate people, so don’t be too hard on yourself.
