Litigar Abogados, a strange company with a strange web.

Not always we need to be notified that a cold call has been received from a dubious company. Sometimes consumers bring websites to our attention that need to be looked at, as they might not be what they appear to be.

That is the case with Litigar Abogados and their newly created website http://litigarabogados.com

A website from a supposed lawyers office that at first sight lacks all the company information or registration numbers.

No privacy statement either, although they do ask for the consumers details through a contact form. So nobody commits to keeping your privacy if you fill this in!

The “15 years” presence on the Internet didn’t give them time either to translate the page into Spanish, which would be expected from a company based in Spain.

Litigar Abogados cannot be found in any Company House, neither the so-called lawyer attached to this company by the name of Manuel Amas Conde.

Their “location” details are:

C/ Duque De La Torre 29, 2nd Floor, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, España

Freephone: 0800 862 0 140

We certainly have second thoughts with this company and if for any reason you are contacted by them, or end up dealing with them through other sources, we recommend extreme caution.

If you have been speaking to Litigar Abogados or have been referred to them, please let us know.

    Unfortunately I have paid the procurator fee and have this morning received a request for the tax on my award which was approved on the 4th October which amounts to 21% of the award for Non Spanish residents. All the paperwork looks in order and the names/officers check out however I am now have concerns and am wondering whether to progress. Any further advice would be welcome.

      Hi, I have this morning received a request for the tax to be paid on my award for 21% of the total which is refundable. However, I have not paid the Procurator fee that was due before the 4th Oct. The instruction I was given by Mr Richard Lehman who is apparently the liason between the lawyers and clients was that unless the payment was made before the court date no action could take place. Well according to them it has and I have been awarded 17,189 Euro! I think it proves it’s an attempted scam.
      Meanwhile I have a couple of Spanish guys at work who are going to look into the very official lookingTax Office paperwork that accompanied the package I received this morning.
      I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Litigar Lawyers have contacted us about ‘dealings’ we had with Lion Resorts.
    As the comments I have read above, it seems a very similar story to the one we have experienced.
    They were very plausible and knew all the details of our ‘dealings’ with Lion Resorts.
    They have e-mailed us with several documents and stated several times that they operate a ‘no win no fee’ policy.
    However the most recent phone call we had, mentioned the fact that we would have to pay a procurator fee, which would be refunded when the case went to court.
    This ‘fee’ amounted to 681 euros.
    Alarm bells rang and having read the other comments on this web site, we are no longer continuing with this process.
    Please be very wary of these people.

    Like Hillary, I too have been contacted by Litigar Abogados. They are totally bogus . If you are approached check out their status with the Collegio de Abogados and you will find that the names of the so-called Abogados do not exist on the Register. In my case they said a hearing had been set for August 2016 ,but I found out that Spanish Civil courts do not sit during the month of August!! (that info was given by the Court itself ,so it is accurate. They also wanted 800 euros upfront for a non-existent Procurador’s fees
    BE WARNED

    Vera DO NOT pay them any money, no legitimate company would ask you to pay in advance!!! I know they say you will get it back but you won’t, that’s how they make their money.

  5. vera says:

    I wouldn’t proceed any further if I was you, I have a membership with Club la Costa (which I am extremely happy with) and have received a number of calls like the one you received, they all say it is no win no fee and they all say that people have been scammed into buying something, whether it be points, fractions, property or anything else they can think off that holiday owners would buy. Im assuming that these like many others will say they have won your case for you and you are due a payment of some sort the next thing is they will contact you to say that due to some hitch etc they need you to pay the fees up front before they can deposit the money in your account, once you pay you won’t see them for dust. I have recently found out that these companies get hold of a basic database of owners and as they cold call them they pick up small bits of information that people give out without thinking, these are then added to the data base and once they are finished they sell it on to someone else, the next bogus company then has a little more information and so it starts again, eventually you’ll get someone calling you and they will have quite a bit of info so they sound as if they really do know whats going on, but they are still scammers. I received a call yesterday almost the same as I received last year and the year before that saying that I could claim back money I’d used to purchase my fractional membership, the first call I got was pretty basic, they knew I was a club la costa member but asked about timeshares, the second call I had they started talking about fractions (which is the newest thing out, or it was then) and now they are talking about selling the fractions after the 19 year period (which is what your contract with club la costa states) please please just ignore them, don’t send anything else, don’t even give them the time of day, if you feel your were scammed into buying points take it up with a lawyer of your own choosing not someone who cold calls.

    I have been contacted by Litigar Lawyers who say they can pursue a ‘no win no fee’ claim against former company Future Resorts Marketing in Tenerife. They say that the assets of one of the key players have been seized to fund refunds to people who were scammed into buying RCI Next Generation points when these were in fact nothing to do with RCI. so far I have sent the receipt of the deposit I paid to FRM. I have not been asked for money – not sure if what they say is true, but as they haven’t asked for anything up front in terms of payment (which I most certainly wouldn’t entertain) I am going to see where this goes. Any advice? having read your caution re Litigar Lawyers, not sure whether I should proceed further.
