YOUTUBE channel Gaviota 007 has published videos detailing exactly how holidaymakers are targeted on Spanish beaches.
The videos feature the beaches of Magaluf and Youtuber Gaviota 007 shows in his content the different ways British tourists are scammed by beach thieves on the island.
Six videos have appeared online so far and each is equipped with helpful information in Spanish, English and German.
Each video details another scheme deployed by the beach thieves of Magaluf.
The first video details how the conmen operate on the party resort, working in twos so one robber can distract the victim while the other sneakily snatches their valuables undetected.
The thieves go as far as to bury the stolen property before sending a friend hours later to retrieve the stolen goods.
The message of the video series is for holidaymakers visiting the beaches of Spain to “be aware”, warning “The thieves are always in your neighbourhood.”
