There's a fairly lenghty article in to days Scottish Sunday Mail entitled " Dream holiday home has turned into a nightmare."

Page 35, The Judge's page.
Sorry but I don't have a scanner so can't post it on the forum. Maybe some other Scottish reader could do this.
It tells of someone who has paid £44,500 so far for an appartment at El Caribe and nothing has yet been built. G and L are mentioned as is Medsea ,Italian Connection and Bella Calabria.
Perhaps others who are in this same situation might find it useful to contact "The Judge" at this newspaper.

I'm sorry to dredge up an old thread, but does ANYBODY have ANY information regarding El Caribe. My father is assuming that he has been robbed of his money by now, and its hard to see how this has affected him.

As far as i know it still has not been built, and we have no comeback and nobody to blame. Just three companies. Bella Calabria, Italian Connection and most definitely Giambrione & Law.

Does anybody know anything, or anybody we can go to for help?

This is pretty much the final attempt at getting any of the 50,000 Euro back.

Never buy a property in Italy it seems.

have you complained to the solicitors complaints, if you search you will see people have been getting money back, also trawl thru the G & L thread to see what other people have done. tempus fugit, time may be up but have a try

Hi Sam,
So sorry to hear of your experience and can understand why you feel so bitter.
There are honest reputable builders and estae agents in Calabria as many ex-pats who have purchased will attest to.
I hope you do get some some redress from the builder / agents you dealt with.
