NATIONAL police arrested around 20 members of a gang believed to be behind an investment scam featuring Spain’s answer to the Bitcoin.
The Spanish version of the cyber currency, like the Bitcoin, was called the unete and launched in cyberspace in 2013 but defrauded around 50,000 small investors of about €50 million, with 6,000 victims in Spain.
Arrests were made across the country in Madrid, Valencia, Malaga, Sevilla, Langreo (Asturias), Alicante and Arrecife (Las Palmas) and included the Valencian couple, Jose Manuel Ramirez Marco, 41, and his partner, Pilar Otero, who police believe are the originators of the investment scheme.
The scheme, under the company name of Unetenet, promised investors that they could triple their earnings in exchange for advertising on the internet. Earnings were paid out in the unete cyber currency but the company stopped paying investors in April 2014. The scam took place across dozens of countries under the guise of a pyramid scheme.


  1. During my early days of binary option i fell into a lot of online scams, trying to trade bitcoin and invest in binary options, Which nearly wrecked me out, making me loose up to 259k very confused on what to do until my boss introduced me to an online recovery agent <>. A recovery expert who helped me recover all my money back from those scammers. He’s also able to recover money from any form of scam.

  2. Please beware there are many fake bitcoin mining/clouding out there, I got scammed twice before I met a genius hacker who helped retrieve my bitcoin. The whole plan was so smooth I could not doubt it. Bitcoin is actually a great investment option but one thing I discovered over time is that it is not possible to mine bitcoin so don’t be deceived. I invested $250,000 on a particular website called bitcoincloudminer, I monitored the profit yielding but got locked out of the account before I could withdraw. I went online and met this recovery expert recoverywealthnow360 at geemail dot com who helped me retrieve my bitcoins back in few hours. You saved my life and I will forever be grateful. I referred my friends whom we got scammed together right away and they got help too. You can contact recoverywealthnow360 at geemail dot com. Thank me later!
