    We paid 30% on offplan apartment. Fernando de Valle was the recommended lawyer who handled the purchase. He is now being held in prison while police on the Costa del Sol investigate a huge money laundering operation.

    Now we learn he had an involvement in the development company and in light of police investigation the assets of the company have been frozen and we are in a lose/lose situation.

    According to legal advise from here in the UK our best way forward would be to form a representative group with others in the same situation.

    Finding other people affected by this is proving difficult.

    If you or anyone you know is in the same situation as ourselves please mail me.
    OR
    If anyone can assist us, advise us or give us further information on the situation we would be more than happy to hear from you.

    Our estate agent were …….. Estates but they are unable to give us any advice.

    Where were you buying?

    I can put you in touch with others on a couple of the developments handled by DVA.

    Guest from Aureus,

    Don’t know if the site helped you but can I suggest that you set up a web page/newsletter (depending on how your ISP handles things) and make sure that the first lines contain the development name, Ballena Blanca, White Whale, La Linea, S. Margarita or anything else that could be picked up by search engines relating to your development, lawyers or agent. This does mean publishing your email address though.

    I found over thirty people to put in touch with each other in respect of the problem developments in Alcaidesa.

    Best of luck.

    Jon

    thank you Jon, I looked on the web site suggested and sent a mail to a contact there but no reply as yet./

    Hopeless with anything other than browsing on the net but will ask family for help to do as you suggest.

    Really appreciate your input.

    regards

    Miren

    Dear Miren,

    There are other people in the same situation as you reading this forum. I know this because some of them have been in touch. However they won’t be able to contact you as you request unless you provide some sort of contact details. Best way to do this is to register with the forum.

    Regards

    Hi Miren

    I am another victem of DVA. All my purchase money had just been transferred to their client account when the authorities raided the offices and siezed all clients funds. I am very anxious to contact all other victems in order to lobby the European Parliament. I have been trying to e mail you but can’t seem to at the moment. I have registered with this site so can you please try to contact me.

    Sorry to block the forum, but I have beentrying to send PMs for a couple of days, but they are just sitting in my outbox. There doesn’t seem to a problem with the site (and as far as I know I haven’t done anything wrong!) so any advice?

    Have tried to e-mail Mark, but of course that is also sitting in my outbox!

    Thanks

    Liz.

    Hi Liz,

    As you will see from my response to this question in other places, I think (hope) it was just a temporary problem. Send me a PM – which do seem to get through to me – in a couple of days if still not resolved.

    Regards

    Mark

    Aureus? If you bought in there then there is every chance that you were a client of a now infamous real estate company based in Puerto Banus,who’s name is associated with a large expansive of water? They have been in bed with FDV for years!
