      Fortunat Estates were behind what may have been one of the biggest frauds targeted at British and Irish overseas property investors.

      Recently busted by the Spanish police.

      I remember seeing their ads run for some time in the quality British press back around 2003/2004.

      That it was a scam was an open secret for some old times down in Marbella/Mijas/Fuengy.

      Anyone fall for this? Anyone know anything about this?

      There are hundreds of comments on this link from people involved. Some interesting info & names etc.

      I think that a ‘company’ called European Mediation is also involved, but may be part of the same scam ❓ ❓

      What a mess! I think these people who were conned are better just reporting it to the Police and not engage Lawyers, there is no chance of getting anything back. Sounds as if it has been carried out by ex-timeshare conners 👿

      Interestingly a call centre in Elviria has been advertising for some weeks for operators..for land-sales 😯

      please say fuengirola, if not i might get blamed!!!

      On a more serious note, this is the first we’ve heard about this particular scam.
      just been doing a quick search and have found the following:

      on the second page there is a comment:

      sorry to say that you can forget your investment. The land deals of FORTUNA (now Euroland, Blue Sky, OANNA SPAIN, Sol y Nieve, etc.) are not real. The land is worthless. You would not get one single Euro per square meter if you sell it!!!!!!!!!
      The people behind these companies are playing with the investors. They may bring a project with a permission to build something on a piece of Land no were in the dessert.
      All victims shut stay together inform the FSA and go to the police.

      link to a site that was supposedly involved. (link from the other forum)
      http://www.oannagroup.com/

      Blue sky used to have an office down the street from us, but closed down about 6 months ago… Never had any dealing with them so i can’t comment on whether they were involved in this. Although it should be noted an ex-employee of there said they were doing timeshare resales and such near the end. Again I can’t verify this.
      but i think this is there website… http://www.blueskyprop.com/

      Mark it might be worth posting on that other forum. Those people could probably use the help
