FAKE website: Father and two sons arrested for making fraudulent offers online.

A MALAGA resident who reported a scam led the National Police force to an investigation resulting in three arrests on January 25, for making fraudulent offers to online customers over a fake website. 

Those arrested are reported to be a father, 52 and his two children, aged 29 and 32, who are accused of selling electronic products on a legitimate-looking website, and then failing to deliver the actual items once the transaction was made. 

Mobile phones, game consoles and other hi-tech items were sold to customers who then received heavy parcels containing bricks, packets of salt or piles of pages.

Police reports confirm an investigation into the online scam began after an online shopper from Malaga made an official complaint, and several customers in Alicante complained to a freight company which had delivered parcels. 

The website’s owners are reported to have successfully duped more than a dozen online shoppers nationwide.

The amount swindled from customers is thought to amount to more than €3,000.
