Police operation dismantles bank scam organisation

The Spanish National Police have dismantled the financing structure of the Trinitarios gang with the arrest of a total of 40 people. The detainees have been charged with crimes such as belonging to a criminal organisation, bank fraud, document forgery, identity theft and money laundering.

Among those arrested, two of them were crackers, who carried out banking scams using phishing and smishing techniques, allegedly deceiving around 300,000 people and defrauding them of up to 700,000 euros.

According to the investigation, the money they took out was used to pay the lawyers' fees of the members who were in prison, to pay membership fees or to buy drugs and weapons.
