My husband and I were visiting Nuevo Vallarta, and as we are retired, were looking to buy a property. We went to check out various places before landing at the development Acqua Flamingos. We had read up on all the places we were looking at and we knew that this development had a lot of legal problems and a bad administration. The units were at a very good rate but the development looked ran down and badly maintained so we decided to leave. As we were exiting we were approached by Mr. Rodrigo Hicks who introduced himself as the owner of the development. First he tried hard to convince us to buy some property in his building by furthering down the price but that seemed desperate and shady to us so we thanked him and told him we were more interested in the Mayan Palace. He told us that he had a very good friend (Manuel Flores owner of Oceankey) that was the former director in Mayan Palace. We went to visit Manuel Flores at the Oceankey office and he showed us a beautiful unit in the Mayan. We went back to his office and he made a provisional contract and asked us for a deposit of 35.000.00 USD with the agreement that he was going to send the formal Purchase Agreement to our home in Denver. Time passed by and after several unresponded calls and broken promises through email he never sent us the paperwork. After three months we decided to fly to Nuevo Vallarta and finally when we met him he was clearly intoxicated and he started to tell us that the unit that we bought had changed price and the new price was 42.000.00 USD more. We were very upset and when we asked for our money back he started to yell at us and threaten us that if we did not pay the 42K more something bad was going to happen to us. As we are an old couple we were scared but we decided to hire MOISES ISRAEL VILLAR ROBLES a lawyer that works in Nuevo Vallarta and promotes himself as defender of investors against people trying to abuse the system. He asked us for 5.000.00 USD retainer with the promise that in a month he was going to get us the money back. We always had problems trying to communicate with him via e-mail and phone and then we started to to receive threatening calls from Manuel Flores So we gave up and don’t go to Mexico anymore. Avoid the services of Manuel Flores of OceanKey and MOISES ISRAEL VILLAR ROBLES both of them are crooks. .
