    The Prosecution is asking four years prison for each of the couple behind AIFOS. A development due to be finished in 2004 never happened. The victims mainly foreign clients paid around 70,000 deposit for an apartment at Hacienda Casares. In total the Prosecution is asking for a total of 8 years in prison for each of the couple.

    Four years in prison is not enough. Even if I look at €70k deposit over four years it amounts to €17500, an average Spaniard will give their right arm to earn this amount in a year.

    Unfortunately that is the way of the world. Read this week that a man who had cheated by claiming benefits to the amount of £30,000 was given 200 hours community service.

    Sorry, Katy when it comes to government/Department etc. I wish them luck with whatever they can get away with. Was it right when our pensions was raided by Mr Brown, some of these people had no time as age was not on their side to make up the difference, was it right when Mrs T discontinue people unemplyment benefit of 80% of their salary before they lost their jobs. The government has been screwing honest, decent people for decades.

    If benefit cheats were simply taking money from the pockets of our politicians I woudn’t shed a tear. But unfortunately the money is from our own pockets

    Money is from our pockets which ever way you look at it. By us being an honest, decent citizens. We dont get any brownie points in fact we are ones who get screwed.

    Do you think some one who has worked all his life & paid his/her taxes etc loses his/her job gets treated by the job centre as some common criminal for a his/her benefit of £50 or so a week. What choice he/she has in order to survive He/or she has to look at other ways to survive.

    In instances like Katy mentioned. We have been brain washed to think that it is our money. Indeed it is our money along with our money that gets spent on back handers, ineffciency, supporting the old boy net work, £ 300 for the Lords per day to turn up or not, MP’s & Council workers Pension, incorrect computer hardware order not used, waste at MOD, wars etc, etc.

    Look at the bigger picture & than reflect.

    Perhaps I am in a minority of people who tries to live life by certain principles that were instilled into me at an early age by my parents. Cheating is cheating no matter which way you look at it. It’s the same as stealing. I think once anyone tries to justify why cheating or stealing is acceptable then they are on a slippery slope of losing their moral compass.

    No offence meant – just my humble opinion.

    No offense taken. I was brought up with the same teaching & principles. We started on the slippery pole when our leaders & people in power took that pole.

    The simplelistic priniciples were there for all & sundry & not for the ones who laid these principles for their own benefits .

    The general public has wised up to the grand deception & are not going to play the same game where they end up on the loosing side all the time from one generation to the next.

    We may carry our lives with the higest possible morals. The world around is not going to do it.

    I’m with you. My moral high ground stops when it comes to speeding tickets etc. I’ll try to avoid extra costs that I don’t think I deserve.

    Re. the subject of thread: AIFOS in court (everyone seems to have off-topic-itis lately….)

    …just want to say, I bet Goodstich will be pleased. He got ripped off royally by this couple as well.
    Where is Goodstich ❓

    I believe any ‘penalities’ the Casado’s receive should include the seizing of their assets/properties to re-pay all victims of their scams, to include massive interest for stress. Unfortunately this case has been brought by one couple so if it’s a positive outcome it still won’t be good news for any of the other victims.

    Have just seen we had a thread exactly a year ago where AIFOS was in court, but they were let off 👿 ….so maybe we shouldn’t hold our breath. The prosecution was asking for a seven year sentence, then ‘toned it down’ to four.

    To quote me on that thread: “It is illegal to sell properties without having a building permit which is exactly what these two did”, so how is it they got off???
