We can never warn enough times about the group of fake lawyers active in Tenerife.
These lawyers contact every single day consumers, and a range of names and companies used makes it quiet complicated to keep up the warnings.
But we certainly give it a good go!
One of the lawyers whom we warned about some time ago is AG Abogados.
This company might not be cold calling any longer under this name, but it seems that the consumers who actually fell for this scam in the first place, are now reaching other stages of the scam.
Initially AG Abogados offered the No win No fee claim, but suddenly procurators became involved and the consumer needed paying, a “reclaimable” tax (21%).
This tax payment was needed in order to release the funds.
Once the taxes were paid, the consumers were assured that a cheque was posted to them with the awarded money, great news!
But the good news doesn’t last long and now they are at the stage where indeed the cheque was released and posted but it turns out the cheque has been intercepted and stolen from the envelope.
The supposed investigations from AG Abogados show a company owned by “3 Ukrainians” cashed the cheque the same day.
The bank involved has now changed to La Caixa and the lawyers appointed by the court to sort things out are now Elias Elisa SA.
Please note that the whole story of the claim, the procurators, the taxes, the cheque, the 3 Ukrainians and now this office Elias Elisa SA is all FAKE!
There is no money and there never was.
If you are sad enough somewhere at a stage of the above mentioned story, than please STOP PAYING and contact us for more information.

Just a word of thanks for your help in assisting me to rid myself of some timeshares. You suggested that I contact them to ask if they would take back my holdings. One was easy but the other, kicked up a big fuss. One of them, I delayed my charges but had given notice that I am leaving RCI this year. So they wrote to me and said I could pay a one off payment, and they would take back my times. Result.
The second one is one of mentioned often in your columns. So I wrote and said that I am now retired and my financial situation had changed, and I am now a carer and am going to have to undergo an operation on my knee. All of which is true. Ohhhhhh! We have to ask the board and if they agree, which they may not, then we may take it back. Low and behold this week a letter stating in strong words that I shall NO LONGER be able to use the Timeshare (Yeah!!!!) exactly what I wanted. So thanks very much. Less bother now and hopefully also NO MORE phone call from “the timeshare council” but I won’t hold my breath on that one. Thanks v much Anne
Will it never end! These scams go on and on reinventing every time . How on earth are we to know who to trust even lawyers it seems.
It really is about time the government and police put a stop to it all
