Ten people accused of a timeshare scam which operated from Fuengirola and defrauded some 300 victims reached agreement with the prosecution as the trial commenced on Monday and have accepted sentences ranging from one to two years in prison.

Diario Sur however notes that none will serve a custodial sentence.
There were originally 18 accused in the case, but one has since died and 7 failed to appear. Six of the accused have admitted their guilt for the crime of fraud, and the remaining four for illicit association. They must also, between them, meet the cost of the 500,000 € which were defrauded.

The paper reports that the group used a telesales system to contact their victims, offering an attractive price to manage the sale of their timeshare properties, giving information on a possible buyer who, in reality, never existed. An up-front payment was requested for the services offered which, in the event, never materialised.
