AN estate agent in Velez Malaga has been arrested on charges of embezzlement and falsifying documents.

When tasked with transferring 18,000 euros for a property in Torre del Mar, the 58-year-old allegedly created fake receipts and pocketed the money himself.

In a separate case, he allegedly showed buyers around partially built flats, then duped them into paying 53,000 euros towards completely fictitious properties – using false names and DNI numbers for the supposed vendor.

    And more; what is this small text, ‘article’ does not seem to be the right word here, supposed to present?
    You could make up similar texts randomly.
    But then again, why haven’t I thought of this before? Might be one of those…

  2. Give us a break. There are many completely honest estate agents. Yes there are a few bad apples as there are in many professions – they usually don’t last too long. There are bad apples everywhere, amongst clients as well, you will no doubt be unsurprised about that as well

  3. Support Fred 100% – corruption is rife in Spain and it’s time they woke up to that fact —- and the Spanish Justice System operates with less speed than the proverbial tortoise. Name and Shame – and if the go bust because of that well tough – he had no thought for the victim/s when he committed his crime
