A DOZEN expats have been arrested over an alleged multi-million euro timeshare fraud.

The group, who were spread across Mijas to Axarquia, are said to have been raking in €100,000 a week from the scheme, which allegedly involved laundering money from scams through an admin office in a village in Axarquia.

North Londoner Howard Capelli and son Jack are said to have begun the scam after the former was handed a tax bill of a cool €1 million.

Top Benalmadena lawyer Christian López  is also alleged to be involved.

All 12 members were arrested after a dawn raid which saw vehicles, computers and credit card machines seized by a team of police and sniffer dogs.

Most of the gang have since been released on bail.
