I have recieved a request for help from someone purporting to be Arthur Satterley who claims that he has been mugged at gunpoint in Spain and needs financial aid immediately. While I do know an Arthur Satterley I find it difficult to believe he would contact me in these circumstances I would not wish to see a fellow countryman in distress but I suspect that his is some sort of scam, can you advise me please.

Just Listening to the Radio -Talkradioeurope in Spain Where we have had the British Ambassador Giles Packston.On there giving us hope in our Problem with Illegally Built Properties in Spain.Where the Buyer got caught up in this property scam.(which the European MPs call it)Did not know the Property he was buying was Illegal in any way.He went through the Spanish Solicitor.Who Spoke English .Who Signed the Deeds of the Property .Went through the Notary who sent the Property Deeds off to the Land Registry.Who Checked them out and sent them back to the Notary.Who then Stamped the Property Deeds.Telling us all is well nothing Illegal.We then had the Council, Send us a Letter Stating how much our Council Tax would be, And we had to Sign that we would pay it.Then after two Weeks of living in our New Home, We were told by the Council that our home we just bought was Illegal.But could not be pulled down, Because it is over 8 years old.A Spanish Law .But we cannot have Mains Water.We have Electricity.But no Mains Water Which is our Human Right,.The European Parliament I know is Fighting this, The British Government has said they will look into it,Now in Andalusia.Spain they are making a Decree on Regulating Legal Tenor on to Legalize Illegally Built Homes,What about Costa Blanca.Thousands of UK Citizens Suffering.And Worried.Yes maybe they can stay in there Homes, And they wont be pulled down.But they want what all Human People want. Fresh Mains Water in there homes. Is that to much to ask for.Please look into it .For us, And chase up the European Parliament.Giles Packston is trying to help.But we need more Push.After all it was not our Fault we bought a Illegal Property. It was Sold to us legally.Through Spanish Lawyers They should take the Punishment not us.From Bob Dunford Crevillente, Alicante Costa Blanca Spain

I have just read Bob Dunfords review re illegal properties. Agree totally but also need help. Not only is my property illegal but also has a false architects certificate which is why the notary allowed the sale/purchase. No one is interested in this fraud. After 5 years without electricity and now knowing why - I want to take action!! Email me: fryfield@gmail.com if you can help/advise especially you Bob if you read this. The government both local and national are totally responsible for allowing these happenings. They know what goes on but do nothing to stop it. No doubt all the fines add to their revenue and like the builders dont't really care at what human cost they get their money.

I don't know if this is the right place for this, but... I got out of Benghazi, Libya on the last ship able to leave on 14th Feb. The Turkish ferry took me, the last Brit wanting to escape,along with a mix of other nationalities,to Mirsın, Turkey. After a 3 day journey to Turkey by sea(Thankyou Turkey) I was met by Brıtısh Consul dırector, Susan Wilson, taken to the nearest airport, given a lovely meal and flown to Istanbul. After an overnight stay in a nice hotel, I was gıven an emergency passport and an aır ticket to North Cyprus, where I have an apartment. Once in Cyprus, I received a telephone call from Zoe Woodward, British High Comission, who came out to meet me and brought all the papers needed to apply for a replacement passport.(My old one was stuck in Tripoli)
Wıthin DAYS!! I was handed my new passport! I could not believe how quıckly it had been processed through Madrid. So, if anyone reads this in Spain, please pass on my sincere appreciation to everyone who has helped!!!THANKYOU!!!

Resident of Lanzarote. I have heard that it is necessary to comply with a new Spanish law to submit details of assets held outside Spain which amount to in excess of E50K. This needs to be completed online on form 720. I cannot seem to be able to access this form and therefore am unable to comply. Can you be of any assistance? Thank you

Please, can anyone help my husband with a motoring offence he didn't commit. His car was photographed in Madrid with the driver on his mobile phone. The police officer took a photograph of the registration plate, which was the same as the one on our vehicle. Our vehicle was parked at our home on the date of the offence, having only returned from the UK late the evening before. We have a list of witnesses with times verifying we were not in Madrid at the time of the offence. We have appealed and this has been refused and we have now been listed as a debtor with denunciation and up until now a 600 euro fine. We have now been told they can seize our assets and be taken to court. We feel so desperate. My husband is not of good health and is making himself ill again with the worry and frustration. Many thanks for any assistance.
