WARNING! Fake notary Maria Mesa from Tenerife!

More names to add to the endless list of names used in the Fake Lawyer’s set up in Tenerife.

Maria Mesa or Maria Hernandez Mesa is the name given to the supposed notary handling the documentation for those consumers who lost their cheque in the post.

After paying the procurator fees consumers are told they will receive a cheque in the post.

They even receive a copy of this cheque; signed and stamped to make it all look real.

But the cheque is lost in the post…

This is the second part of this very elaborated scam, and now the consumer is placed in hands of even more (fake) lawyers, procurators and notaries.

Maria Mesa, the supposed notary handling this robbery, explains to the consumer about the complicated process to recover the money from the stolen cheque, and the costs involved.

Yet again a procurator is looking for a fee, this time it is Svetlana Ruben Skirah.

Please note that these people are all fake, there are no claims, there are no cheques and the money isn’t lost in the post as there was no money at all!!

The notary Maria Mesa does not have a website.

All she has is an email address maria-mesa@post.com, a telephone number 0034 922986701 and a fake office address, 4 Calle el Pilar, 38002 Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

PLEASE do NOT pay these fraudsters. You won’t see your money back!

Maria Mesa does not exists, and Vetlana Ruben Skirah does exist but she is not a procurator, she is part of this scam and is providing her bank account to receive the money they are requesting from their victims!

If you have been dealing with any of the people mentioned above, or are speaking to a lawyers company such as Legalizalos, Legal Izalos, Izalos Legal, etc, be aware you are talking to fraudsters!

ATTENTION FRAUDSTERS! Olga Gema Kaya, bogus procurator for Legalizalos


The fake lawyer’s company Legalizalos is continuing their calls and they’re offering their fake and fraudulent services.

Consumers, who are falling for this scam, are going from a No win No fee legal service to paying fees over and over again without receiving anything back in return.

One of the fees to be paid is the procurator fee before the consumer will receive a substantial amount awarded through the courts.

One of the procurators is Mrs. Olga Gema Kaya.

To make it all appear even more genuine, they have gone through the trouble of setting up a website: https://procuradores-kaya.com

This web lacks all kind information, there is no company registration, no telephone number and the address turns out to be fake: Calle Nortalda 9, Edificio Folleros, Planta 6, Oficina 623, 38001, Santa Cruz, Tenerife

We suppose that only the email address procuradores-kaya@europe.com is correct in case a consumer tries to do research and goes through this web to ask questions.

The email will lead straight back to the fraudsters obviously!

The reality is that this woman, Olga Gema Kaya is purely used for her bank account, which she provides for the payment of these fake procurator fees.


If you have been in contact with Legalizalos, Legal Izalos or whatever lawyers company that cold-called you from Tenerife and told you about an upcoming claim you could join, please let us know.

Genuine legal companies do NOT cold call!

Martinez Notaries or Notarias Martinez, as fake as it can get!

This cold caller already had their dedicated space on our blog last year, but as they seem to have made a “come-back” after several months of no calls, they deserve again a mention.

A lady called Annie Tyler is cold calling from this fake and bogus notary office Martinez Notaries.

The story is about a court claim against a fraudulent company the consumer has been dealing with in the past, and the judge has ruled against the company and they have to pay back all the money to their victims.

Each victim will be offered a settlement and Notarias Martinez has been appointed by the courts to contact these victims and agree on a settlement and process the transfer of the awarded money.

The services from Martinez Notaries are not for free though and Annie Tyler kindly sends the consumer an invoice for their legal services. These invoices do not include any company address.

The services from Martinez Notaries are a legal requirement for the transfer of the consumers’ settlement. Once Notarias Martinez has received this payment the settlement will be dispatched within 12 working days.

All they mention is their telephone: (+34) 634173099 and Fax. 07011 973 213

Previously these numbers were (+34) 603208693, (+34) 634173099 and Fax: 07011972107

They also display a supposed Spanish Company Registration number a so-called CIF number in Spain; B82685245. Surprisingly, in previous correspondence, they used a completely different CIF number: B92785054.

Neither of these numbers actually exist.

So far the only thing that remains unchanged is the email address: notariasmartinez@gmail.com

Other names of staff members used throughout the documents are James Watson and Juliette Sinclair.

Bank account holders are in different names but the ones standing out are Natalia M. Martinez, Geraldine Martinez, and Jordan Francisco Martinez.

So apparently an entire family is acting as a notary?

Please do not fall for this scam. This is a bogus notary, no court settlements have been offered to anybody out of the blue, and no notaries are involved in court settlements anyway.


It is not normal a cold caller has all your private details and knows about your dealings with scam companies in the past!

Be careful with the cold calls from Brookfield Associates

More of the same really this Brookfield Associates.

Cold calls and an agent with far too much knowledge of personal and private details from the consumers. Not a good sign!

Names used for these agents are among others, Alan Farthing, Sophie Moore, and Andrew Makin.

The first call is about an upcoming claim in the Spanish courts against ILG/DWVC, Eze Group, Club Class, etc.

The consumers can join this claim, and Brookfield Associates is going to act on their behalf. Just like that. No paperwork, no verification of documents, nothing. You just join the claim over the phone.

After a couple of days, the agent from Brookfield Associates calls back and brings the good news that the claim has been heard and the consumer is awarded a substantial amount of money. Amounts between £38,000 of the £48,000 are mentioned.

The consumer has to confirm he agrees with this settlement.

Once confirmed with the court in Malaga, he is asked for a 10% admin fee into an escrow account before Brookfield Associates would be able to process the paperwork to release the money. It isn’t possible to take this 10% of the awarded amount.

For the payment, they provide a UK bank account in the name of “Our One Club”.

A company that appears to be a holiday club and based in the UK.

When asked how legal fees for a supposed Spanish based company have to be paid into the UK bank account of a holiday club, the agent explains they outsource the payments.

Please note that court claims cannot be joined just like that, and neither is there any claims going against DWVC, ILG, EZE Group or Club Class.

Contact details for Brookfield Associates are:


Telephone: 0034 603 200 760

We couldn’t find a website for Brookfield Associates.

The website of Our One Club http://ouroneclub.com mentions in the Contact details the company O1C Leisure and Legal Solutions S.L.

That explains the story about the court claims then.

If Brookfield Associates has contacted you with a similar nonsense story, please do let us know.

CUC ABOGADOS, the legal collection agency who will unblock your money…

Last month we placed a warning about a letter consumers received from the company Solutions Group. In this letter, they notified the consumer about the upcoming court date for a claim they supposedly initiated a long time ago, on behalf of the consumer.

This letter has now a follow-up. CUC Abogados, or Caneillo Utierros Ciusapi Abogados, a bogus lawyers company from Tenerife contacts the consumers.

They explain they are a legal collection agent who is working in conjunction with Spanish courts.

CUC Abogados states in the letter that as the consumer is probably aware “the payment behavior of the Spaniards is one of Europe’s worst”

Due to this problem, they see the need for a collection agent, to enforce the judgment because if not, the consumer won’t ever see their money.

As it looks like the consumer will receive a substantial award through the court, CUC Abogados recommends their enforcement to make sure the debtor will be paid out.

For 1975 Euros, the lawyer from CUC Abogados will make sure the debtor will not obscure assets or reduce the chance of redress in any other possible way.

Contact details for the fake CUC Abogados are telephone 0800 9202491

Email: CUC-ABOGADOS@consultant.com

Website: https://caneillo-utierros-ciusapi.com this website was registered on the 12th of August 2019.

The person signing the letter from CUC Abogados is David Lomerz Utierros and the other bogus lawyers are Mariano Manac Caneillo and Chimno Hernandez Ciusapi.

Mr. Ciusapi kindly includes his bank account in the letter for the payment of the 1975 Euros. This is his personal bank account of course…

Please note that this is all a scam! There is no such thing as an upcoming court claim against ILG/DWVC in September.

There is no such company as CUC Abogados, and the only company we could find with this name is based in Mexico!

If Solutions Group or any “lawyers” company such as CUC Abogados has approached you by phone, email or letter with stories about upcoming claims, compensation payouts, and collection services, please do let us know.
