Latest News! Fraudulent gang of fake lawyers arrested in Tenerife!

tenerife2

Some good news has been made public by the police of Tenerife, about the fact they arrested 21 people of different nationalities who were involved with a gang of fake lawyers and legal services.

The police operation called “Operación Medusa” took place in June 2013, but has not been made public up till now due to the ongoing investigations.

Yesterday the Europa Press newspaper online published the news in the following article:

Mindtimeshare was aware of this police action for some time now, as we received several complaints as well about companies apparently connected to this gang, such as Comunidad Autonomia Canaria, Litis Consorcio Activo SL or Phoenix Gestion Jure. These companies were active in the years 2010 and 2011.

The police do not exclude the possibility that there are more fake companies involved.

From what has been discovered, the criminals had access to personal details of Timeshare owners through ex-employees of different resale companies who had taken this data with them after leaving the company.

They would contact the Timeshare owners claiming to be Legal advisers or Lawyers and promising that they could claim back all the money for the owners. In order to do such claim they asked for several payments such as legal fees, notary fees, translation fees, etc.

Among the arrested there are individuals of Spanish, Dutch, French, Italian and Belgium nationality all residents in the South of Tenerife.

As we are in close contact with the police in Tenerife we will update about this case as soon as we have more news.

If you have been victim of one of the above mentioned companies or any other bogus lawyers office based in Tenerife, then please do contact us as soon as possible.
