6000 euros (4200)was stolen from my father, Mr Pittel, in 2004 by Richard Weinberg's brother Adrian, who was a sales representative for a property development company in Marbella, Spain. Adrian's mother, Shirley Weinberg, took dad out there on the pretence of a vacation to recover from a triple heart bypass. They both persuaded him to part with the money as a deposit on a holiday apartment while he was in a vulnerable state, putting immense pressure on him even though he said he wasn't interested. It was subject to the approval of his Financial Advisor (who subsequently advised against it strongly)and supposed to be a refundable transaction if my father changed his mind within 10 days. However, the money was never forthcoming and it is now known that it was shared among Adrian and his mother Shirley and his brother Richard - all scheming thieves.
Despite obtaining court judgment against Adrian who later returned to the UK, we failed to recover the money because both Richard & Shirley concealed his whereabouts and all his details, eg phone no, work location, home address etc.
Eventually we secured court judgment against Shirley for her part in the theft, at which point Richard stepped in and employed a lawyer. We agreed amicably to withdraw judgment against her ON THE BASIS that he helped us to recover the money from Adrian and contributed his share. The amount we insisted upon was the amount awarded to us by the court, which included interest and court fees and amounted to over 6000.
Richard PROMISED that the money would be paid to us in regular instalments which would be forthcoming within a couple of weeks. Needless to say, this was several months ago and we have once again not received the money owed to us by the Weinberg family. All subsequent phone calls and pleasto Richard have been heartlessly ignored and he has even hung on me, even though he knows that I, Mr Pittel's daughter, desperately need the money for health reasons.
Richard Weinberg is a wealthy man. He owns Tavernier, an elitediamond jewellery store, in London's west end. He lives in a big house and both his children attended private schools. 6000 is nothing to him, yet he refuses to part with the money that could potentially enable me to walk again. He is a heartlessthief and fraud just like his brother and his mother. I urge you NOT to shop at Tavernier, nor to have dealings with the Weinberg family.
