|The Gonzales Group came to San Carlos in 2000 invited here by Gerardo Pliego the then Comisario of San Carlos and his partners, the Reeves, then owners of Casa de Amigos Realty. On December 11, 2001 it was discovered from the Secretaria de Educacion y Cultura in Hermosillo that Maria Ester Herrera Gonzales operating as a lawyer under the law license (No. 2680663) of another person! Maria Ester is Carmen Gonzales' daughter. Shortly after this, Carmen started Amigos Trust operating in conjuction with Casa de Amigos Realty and Barb Reeves. At times Carmen also claimed to be a lawyer. And the saga goes on and on but begs to answer the question, "Why did so many allow themselves (individuals as well as realty companies), to be taken by these people knowing what the SEC exposed?" On November 14, 2013 the Expreso newspaper published news of a Ministerio Publico investigation naming Karmen (sic) Gonzales as purporting to be a lawyer. The newspaper shows a screen shot of Siesta Realty's web page where Phyllis Lilichkies says across the top, "Meet Amigos Trust in San Carlos" and goes on to extol their virtues. And of course there was the mysterious fire at the Amigos Trust office next to Megacable. And there must be dozens of individual stories; and yes, the silence on this until now has been deafening!
