The Civil Guard has dismantled a network that scammed older people posing as members of the Andalusian Health Service
22 people have been arrested for the alleged crimes of unlawful association, fraud, usurpation, document falsification and money laundering
The disjointed organization could have charged more than 3 million euros and more than 1,500 victims have been located
The Civil Guard, in the framework of the MUTANTE operation, has broken up in Jaén a network dedicated to scamming older people posing as members of the Andalusian Health Service. The detainees now pledged to provide the victims with the necessary sanitary material to treat any injuries they suffered and they simply had to sign a “receipt” for it, but really what they had signed was a consumer credit.
22 people (17 women and 5 men) have been arrested in the towns of Granada and Albolote, for the alleged crimes of unlawful association, fraud, usurpation, documentary falsification and money laundering. Likewise, a registry has been made, in which abundant documentation has been obtained that is being investigated.
