*Author of original report: Facts About Geoff Bramwell, John Bramwell, Tamarindo Beach Ocean Estates and Los Suenos Island Resort Deceit, Fraud, Fraudulent and Negligent Misrepresentations in Nicaragua
Here are the facts. Geoff Bramwell is a former associate of ours jealous of an enterprise that created success rapidly. In 2005, Geoff Bramwell negotiated secretly to purchase land through a Nicaraguan attorney in the amount of USD $1,200,000 that was under contract to our company for half the price. Geoff Bramwell brought in his brother John Bramwell and they formed an anonymous company (Toucan Properties S.A.) in order to conceal who was purchasing the land and made deposits to the Vendor in a Panamanian bank account on October 17, 2005 in the amount of USD $30,000 and November 2, 2005 in the amount of USD $350,000 for the purchase of the land and carry the balance owed on a mortgage to the Vendor.
In 2006, Geoff Bramwell and his brother John Bramwell then proceeded to purchase another title what is known as an Agrarian Title with with 275 Manzanas (473 Acres). Had they done their due diligence, they would have known it was a fake.
Why did they buy it?
Consider this. Land values on the island were not cheap, yet Geoff and John Bramwell were offered an Agrarian Title priced at roughly 4% of the established price per manzana on the island and to Eduardo Jose Yrigoyen. In a rational person this would set off all kinds of alarm bells, but the key word here is "rational."
I'm not a mind reader, but I assume that Geoff and John Bramwell figured that if they could purchase the Agrarian Title for a 96% discount off the market price on the island they would have plenty of money left over to try to make it legitimate. And that's exactly what they tried to do. The Agrarian Title sequence was out of order, the type of land (mostly mangroves) was inappropriate for an Agrarian Title, the official paper was incorrect, and further irregularities piled up from there. To top it off, the official governmental office of land titles could find no evidence that the Agrarian Title ever existed. Despite all contrary evidence, Geoff and John insisted that their title was legitimate and attempted to extort Kevin Fleming, Maria Rueda and the owners of property on the island.
We are pleased to report that what we have believed for a long time has been comprehensively and unequivocally proven. Indendencia, the highest office of Agrarian Titles in Nicaragua, from the Ministry of Hacienda (the Finance Department) has issued an official letter stating there is no evidence of the existence of the Agrarian Title. The Agrarian Title is not valid as decided by the highest official office of titles in Nicaragua. This is a very important development for all owners at Isla Mariana.
As you may know, for years the Bramwells have been maintaining that they need a letter from Intendencia to demonstrate the validity of their Agrarian Title and a Letter of No Objection from the Republic of Nicaragua. The highest Director within the official title office of Intendencia, Mr. Ciro Orozco Berrios, has issued a letter.
Intendencia de la Propiedad, the highest office of Agrarian Titles in Nicaragua, from the Ministry of Hacienda (the Finance Department) has issued 3 official letters in three different consecutive government administrations stating there is no evidence of the existence of the Agrarian Title held by the Bramwell's for the project Tamarindo Beach & Ocean Estates, Los Suenos Island Resort and Nica Projects.
In regards to the Agrarian Title, an official at Intendencia de la Propiedad confirming its existence in July 2007 generated a letter; however, the person who issued the letter was subsequently fired under strong public allegations of fraud. Prior to that, there were three letters issued by officials from different governments within Intendencia de la Propiedad stating that the Agrarian Title has no registration record in their office.
Not only has Intendencia, the highest governmental body in the country that authenticates titles, declared that the Bramwells' Agrarian Title does not exist, they have also named and referenced the exact title number, exact volume, page and seat. The bottom line is that the Bramwells will never receive the letter they need because the Agrarian Title it does not exist.
In essence, the Bramwells gambled. They hoped to purchase an Agrarian Title for pennies on the dollar and later find a way to make it legitimate. Thankfully, in the end the bet did not pay off. They have no viable development, no legitimate title and no title insurance. Soon the Agrarian Title should be annulled.
It was more bad news for the Bramwells when they tried to get title insurance for the Agrarian Title in their project, Tamarindo Beach and Ocean Estates. First American Title Insurance Company declined their request for title insurance on the Agrarian Title. But that did not stop Bramwells from continuing to advertise their land to unsuspecting buyers that eventually led to a lawsuit and judgment against Geoff Bramwell, John Bramwell, Nica Projects Ltd, Lighthouse Enterprises Ltd., formerly known as Brammy Bros. Properties Ltd., NOT Kevin Fleming.

The Bramwells have maintained that the Agrarian Title overlaps Isla Mariana and that we must move. In addition to the official disclosure from Intendencia, First American Title Insurance Company and the law firm of Garcia Boden ruled that there was no evidence to support the Agrarian Title and that the title may be located in an area elsewhere according to the same Agrarian Title description. (That is if it were real, which we now have unequivocal evidence that it is not.) We are not going anywhere. We have a legal right to be where we are.
We will not be accepting any deals from the Bramwells because we feel it could jeopardize our owners. The Bramwells offered us millions of dollars to keep quiet and allow them to get title insurance on the Agrarian Title. We refused because we could not accept a deal when we have evidence to the contrary regarding the Agrarian Title. We are simply not willing subject our owners to the adverse consequences, regardless of the money.
The Attorney General of the Republic of Nicaragua has issued an official signed letter declaring that the government has no objection to the location of Isla Mariana. The official document, which is referred to as a Letter of No Objection, is crucial because such a letter can never be issued twice for the same piece of land.
The official document, which is dated April 8, 2008, gives clear authorization for the location where Isla Mariana currently stands. The document also acknowledges all deeds purchased by Isla Mariana. The entire landmass of Isla Mariana has been recorded and detailed, deed-by-deed.
The letter issued by the Attorney General of Nicaragua establishes Isla Mariana as the owner of the land in question. With the issuance of the letter, the Republic of Nicaragua has made it known that they recognize Isla Mariana to be on State land but in granting an official Letter of No Objection, the government is affirming and protecting Isla Mariana's rights as a good-faith third party purchaser.
The Bramwells Agrarian Title has been a source of contention on the island. The Republic of Nicaragua, INETER and the Municipality of Leon have weighed in on the matter. The island in its entirety has undergone a thorough investigation. The Republic of Nicaragua has concluded that the Agrarian Title does not correspond to the area that Isla Mariana is located. In addition, the Attorney General of Nicaragua has raised serious concerns about the origin of the Agrarian Title.
With the issuance of the Letter of No Objection, the government is confirming its position of upholding the rights of good-faith third party purchasers, such as Isla Mariana. In doing so, the Republic of Nicaragua is taking a positive step toward resolving property disputes that have been ongoing in the area.
We've have been acting in good faith throughout the difficult process of development at Isla Mariana. When a problem was discovered, we were adamant about not exposing future owners to risk. We have been diligently trying to resolve the matter, while simultaneously contending with multiple difficulties and delay tactics generated by the Bramwells.
If Geoff and John Bramwell could find a way to make their Agrarian Title legitimate they stand to earn millions, if not tens of millions of dollars in profit from their development. There seems to be one major hurdle standing in their way. As you may have guessed, based on the venom theyve been aiming in our direction, that hurdle would be the truth. They don't care for our company, Kevin Fleming and Maria Rueda because we're standing in the way of their duplicity.
As you know, the obstructionist behavior displayed by the Bramwells has made moving forward in a positive manner difficult. However, with their Agrarian Title finally and thoroughly discredited we are now free to proceed forward. We are pleased to announce as a result of due diligence and hard work, Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat is firmly on track and stronger than ever. While the operations of many other developers in the region have come to a halt for lack of permits, we remain on-track and steadfastly moving forward.
As we have mentioned, the Bramwells had no option but to fight because they were aware that without the Agrarian Title they would have nothing. We were standing in their way and thus they had strong incentive to attempt to sully our character. Any emails received from them are more readily understood when viewed from that vantage point.
Perhaps, buyers are wise to ask Geoff and John Bramwell, which title they are currently attempting to sell properties to unaware buyers in Nicaragua at Tamarindo Beach & Ocean Estates and Los Suenos Island Resort. Is it the discredited Agrarian Title or the original title purchased from the Vendor for the purchase price of USD $1,2000,000.
The Bramwells emails and post are truly out of line. Having one's back to the wall can bring out a viciousness that is frightening to witness. And that is exactly what we're seeing from their recent actions and communication. Any message from John and Geoff Bramwell should be viewed through the lens of what it is - the ranting of a men with their back against the wall and nothing to lose.
In future communication, we will reveal additional details about the newly established relationship between Edward Albert Cole, Carmen Elizondo and the Bramwells. In addition, you will learn more facts about the Bramwells, Panama Offshore Services International, Nicaragua Developments Inc., Suenos Developments S.A., Suenos Fundacion, Nicaragua Foundation, Toucan Foundation and the real identity of the Seaside Mariana Investor Union.
