A SEVILLA resident has been arrested after allegedly conning at least 28 people on the Costa del Sol and throughout Andalucia.
People paid the suspect deposits for homes and apartments in Jaen, Cordoba, Granada, Sevilla, Malaga, Huelva, Madrid, Badajoz and Guadalajara.
But when they arrived to collect the keys, he was nowhere to be seen and was unreachable by telephone or email.
He also used personal information from his victims to open bank accounts and register with telephone or broadband companies.
Officers soon tracked down the suspect to a home in Cañada Rosal in Sevilla.
There they found several credit cards, 60 mobile phone cards, different IDs and mobiles and stacks of documents, which are all being analysed.
