OMG yes. I cannot believe that BS...
Even if they have no real claim, they just want to cause you trouble because they don't want you there. Sometimes they are just insane. Other times, they have a "cousin" that has been trying to buy the land but can't afford it, so they make it difficult for anyone to buy it.
While that also happens in the US at least you can expect a court outcome in a reasonable time frame but overseas you may never even see your court date set.
