Scam of more than 4,000 euros through the hiring of micro credits in the name of a citizen of Fuerteventura


The Civil Guard of Fuerteventura, within the framework of the LAGARGA investigation, investigated on May 17 a 20-year-old person, as the alleged perpetrator of a continuous crime of fraud, having contracted through the Internet, fraudulently using the identity of another person, various micro credits through several financial institutions, as well as using the complainant's bank card to make purchases in establishments, causing an economic loss of € 4,326.96.



Knowledge of the facts



The Civil Guard became aware of these facts, after a complaint filed in September, in which the victim states that he had been scammed, when his identity was used to hire micro credits and different online purchases, since various financial companies were making charges in his bank account, not knowing the origin of the same, as well as that he had been informed that he was going to be incorporated into a list of defaulters for unpaid debts with these financiers.



Research collected



Given all this, the Civil Guard initiated an investigation to find out the origin and reason for the charges, finding out that the origin of the charges with the financial ones were due to the fraudulent hiring and signing to these companies of various online microcredits, in which the identity of the complainant had been used for the hiring of them. On the other hand, it was also possible to verify that his bank card had been used to make purchases on Internet platforms. As the investigation progressed and following the digital traces left by the alleged author of the facts, it was possible to identify, locate and investigate as the alleged perpetrator of a continuous crime of fraud to a person residing in Fuerteventura.



Self-protection tips on the network



It is recalled the need to be aware that to surf the net must be done with caution and self-protection, and carry out a series of measures for its safe use, the first and most important of all being common sense, together with a series of measures aimed at keeping safe all devices that have access to the network and access to the portals of which we use, All this will avoid greater evils and damages in the future
