DETAINED: An individual was arrested by police in Fuengirola

AT least two Brits could have been conned into coughing up €4,600 in a timeshare scam.

A Policia Nacional investigation led to the arrest of a Fuengirola resident who police believe could have scammed other Britons too.

The 38-year-old Colombia national is accused of offering a number of properties for holidays which then never materialised.

The payments were made to the account of the mother of the accused but the holiday-makers were left empty-handed.

The Policia Nacional opened the investigation after the two Brits made a denuncia about what had happened.

The Colombian was arrested and charged with fraud after the investigation was carried out.
