A COUPLE have been duped into paying €1,200 for a counterfeit magnetic therapy machine from a door-to-door salesman.

The couple paid upfront for the false apparatus at their home in Granada, before realising it was fake and calling the police.

Police later said the machine was similar to EC-approved machines originating in Italy.

The salesman has since been charged with fraud.

Magnet therapy is an alternative medicine practice which uses static magnetic fields to treat muscle pain.
