When all this started out on the other forum, my view was that the tax shelter idea was currently "workable", but that the loophole would be closed at some point. We therefore advised our clients and friends not to go down that route, thankfully.
What I've been reading recently, though, is far more sinister, and if these allegations of taking money for taxes and not paying them, not completing tax returns when contracted to do so, witholding people's money, denying they have ever dealt with them etc etc, turn out to be true, then it would appear that some serious fraud has been committed.
What we don't know is whether there are just a couple of isolated cases, or if there are hundreds of people across Lanza and Fuerte who have been affected in this way.
Can I suggest the people who have been (alledgedly) "stung" by this get together and form some kind of group to, firstly, track down as many others so affected and then to take advice as to how to "extricate" their properties from the shelters, and finally to seek some recompense for losses incurred.
