Stanley Brazil Correa and his wife Valderez Correa are going around Portugal and contacting property owners directly. They say they want to buy their property, agree a price, and have the owners get a lawyer to draft a contract.
Once this is done they persuade the owner to accept payment directly by bank transfer into their account and also to under declare the sale price. He also sets up offshore companies with nominee directors to make the purchase so that ownership cannot be traced to him.
If the owner refuses to under declare then he simply disappears, leaving the home owner in debt to their lawyer. He has done this with many many property owners. One seller who was suffering from cancer and having Chemotherapy actually flew from the US to Portugal to sign the contract only to find he had disappeared after they did not agree to under declare.
This is an old trick, when he finds a seller who is prepared to under declare then he only enters into a contract with the under declared amount and then of course only pays the undeclared amount according to the contract and leaves the property owner seriously out of pocket.
I also believe that he is using funds from unsuspecting companies who get swindled by his import export companies and uses the names and bank account details of the property owner to facilitate both his property purchase transaction and his money laundering activities.
