TWENTY-ONE people were arrested, believed members of an organized crime group dedicated Social Security fraud.

 

They were arrested in Murcia, Alicante, Benidorm and Hellin, in Albacete.

These individuals allegedly formed various fictitious companies that gave work contracts in exchange for payments of €150 a month.

The ‘employee’s’ believed they would then be eligible for unemployment or maternity benefits.
However, these companies never paid the Social Security and the ‘employee’s’ never carried out any work for them, it was found.

The companies shut down at the moment that the ‘employees’ presented the fake documents to the officials to claim benefits.

They also reportedly charged €3,000 for residence permits.

The detainees are of Spanish, Moroccan, Paraguayan, Columbian and Romanian nationality between the ages of 25 and 50.

Investigations remain open and further arrests could be made.
