Deposit Fraudster

1 min read

A 49-year-old Belgian woman, who allegedly got 60 thousand euros of deposit money for non-existent flats on the Costa Blanca, has been arrested by the National Police in Formentera del Segura. Fellow Belgians were marked out for the scam as they paid deposits of between 12,500 and 15,500 euros for apartments in Calpe, which were marketed by her as bank repossessions, but she merely pocked the money.

The woman is said to have been running a real estate company and holiday letting agency out of Formentera, and five people have been scammed since 2012, with most of the fraudulent transactions being carried out in Belgium.
