It's a shame that the boffins, legal eagles and champions of the robbed weren't as high profile or prevalent back in 2005 when Atlas stitched me up.
They took a £38,000 50% deposit for a 2 bed apartment in a Benijofar complex called Triana(?), next to the Citroen garage.
With completion due for Dec 2004, we were happy to wait. But, guess what, the place was never built and despite promises and free flights to inspect the area and look at possible (dearer) alternatives, the builders never did more than cordon off the area with tape.
It took visits to exhibitions and threats of upstaging them at the Place In The Sun Exhibition to make any progress. After writing to every property programme on TV and outing them on every forum going, they eventually relented and returned the £38k - if we signed a gagging agreement.
The gagging agreement was a point of annoyance, but the lack of interest back on that money and the fact that decent properties were so much more expensive because of the ever-increasing property bubble just rubbed salt into the wound. I'd love to know about the 47 other families that would've also been ripped off.
Thinking back, I was a fool to fall for the patter. However, it's difficult to comprehend that so many people and so many companies were in on the ruse. When you're looking for advice and support from your fellow man, it's a shame on humanity.
