Buyer Beware

I received the following information from a local resident that is concerned that some unsuspecting person might be approached to buy some property that is currently under contention for ownership. In Panama, it is not all that unusual for properties to be sold and then the new owner finds that he/she has a legal problem..

Here is the Spanish notice.

Atencion: Las siguientes fincas se encuentran secuestradas, por lo que no pueden ser vendidas for persona alguna.

Fincas: 2301 – 8259 – 8260 – 807- 11565- 9118 ubicadas en San Vicente carretera hacia Volcan.
Finca 9038 ubicada en San Martin
Fincas: 31104 – 5974 – 5503 – 6354- 5842 – 41565 ubicadas in Cabecera, Distrito de Bugaba

Here is my rough translation.
