Two People investigated in Tenerife over fraud
The Guardia Civil has arrested two people and investigated four others as alleged members of a criminal organisation that defrauded €15,000 from different clients with false bookings in luxury hotels in Tenerife.
The investigation was based on several complaints from victims of the scam, which consisted of offering accommodation in luxury hotels/villas, mainly located in the south of Tenerife, at prices much lower than those offered by the hotel establishments themselves or different official websites.
When the victims arrived at the hotel complex, was when they realised that they had been swindled, as there was no reservation in their name at the establishment.
Both the main ringleader of the organisation and the rest of the members are attributed with 25 offences of fraud, with the value of the stolen money amounting to €15,000.
