THREE men who conned tenants in Sa Pobla in Mallorca, Spain, have been taken to court in Inca.
An investigation found that the men rented out various properties to individuals on Calle Goleta, taking a deposit and a succession of rental payments from their new tenants.
However, a few months later, bailiffs showed up at their doors and explained that the homes had in fact been repossessed and were now owned by a bank. Although each of the tenants had paid their rent on time, none had signed a rental agreement, so they were forced to vacate from the premises immediately.
Recently, the Consell de Mallorca revealed that they have received a large number of complaints from residents about bogus rentals of properties across the island. As Euro Weekly News understands, many of the scammers advertise homes that do not exist, taking money from prospective tenants before vanishing.
