Roberto Pancaldi’s Scam Victims.
A few months ago we were contacted by an Italian law firm representing some of Roberto Pancaldi’s scam victims. These were Italian citizens who bought rooms from him and who used B&M Law as their legal firm. Roberto Pancaldi has been involved in selling a lot of scams.
The B&M Law website lists Alastair Dobbie as a consultant solicitor [LINK to B&M Law website]. Alastair Dobbie does not mention being involved with B&M Law on either his LinkedIn page or on his profile page on the Shortlands Law website. He also doesn’t mention his time with Fentons Solicitors.
It’s fair to say that Mr Dobbie’s time at both firms has not been without controversy. Now there has been an issue at Shortlands Law which has resulted in a Costs Order against the scam victims who were represented by Shortlands Law. That is rubbing salt into their wounds, especially when the case should never have been brought to court – LINK to our article on this subject.
We didn’t announce the contact from the Italian law firm until now because the investors were signing up to a legal claim against B&M Law. We have been advised that this has now begun and the firm has been informed.
Unfortunately, not all of Roberto Pancaldi’s scam victims have been able to join the legal action. It now appears Mr Pancaldi’s offer to help investors to whom he sold scams is dependent on them signing a waiver document. The document requires investors to give up all their rights to take action against him for compensation. The majority of his investors live in Italy and believe they are reliant on his help so many of them have signed the waiver. Roberto Pancaldi is represented by Alastair Dobbie. It makes us wonder how many other ‘investor co-ordinators’ have tricked investors into giving them immunity from prosecution. They’re not quite the good Samaritans they make themselves out to be.
