COSTA del Sol fraudster Nigel Goldman’s Christmas has just got a whole lot worse.

Goldman, who changed his name to Howard del Monte, has been finally summoned to court in Spain over the defrauding of four expats to the tune of €750,000.

GOLDMAN: Summoned to court.

It comes after the 58-year-old was found guilty of fraud for a THIRD time in the UK.

While he is awaiting sentencing on January 8 at Reading Crown Court, he has been ordered to appear in Fuengirola on January 5.

“If he fails to turn up then the next step will be to issue an arrest warrant for him,” said Marbella lawyer Antonio Flores, who is representing some of the victims of his elaborate investment scam.

“It has taken us two years to get to this stage and it is still only the beginning,” he added.

The former radio pundit and newspaper columnist could spend a decade in jail if found guilty.

Before he faces justice in Spain however, Goldman will discover his sentence for carrying out a €12,000 gold coin eBay scam out of his small Berkshire cottage.
