He recognised that after gaining access to the email which the buyer used to communicate with a notary in the UK, a message was sent to the complainant to give them the details of a bank account in which to make the deposit.

The account was not in fact the notary’s, but one which B.K. had opened in bank in Jumilla in Murcia.

The prosecutor concluded that either B.K. or another person acting under his authority had sent the email

As well as the jail time, the agreement includes a fine and the payment of €28,500 compensation to the complainant.
