Beware Potential Thieves in Los Montesinos


Posted Wed Apr 12, 2017 1:04pm

This morning, Wednesday 12 April, potential thieves were seen in Los Montesinos.

A large man wearing a white tea shirt was driving a dark car with a smaller, well dressed lady, in the back.  They stopped the car and the lady got out.  She said they were Turkish and wanted directions to the nearest hospital offering what looked like a gold bracelet to say thank you.  This is to distract you. Walk away.

I also came across them in Playa Flamenca 2 weeks ago, although there were 2 men in the front of the car. They stopped the car just behind me and the lady in the back asked me the way to the hospital,after I told her she tried to grab my hand saying thank you thank you. I sensed that something was wrong, so I shouted at her very in a loud voice no no, as again tried to grab my hand. they then drove off turning away from the direction of the hospital!!J.S.

This has happened on Quesada, we must all be vigilant and err on the suspicious side. Unfortunately holidaymakers are not always aware of these crimes happening.

What exactly is the purpose of this distraction?

They hugged a lady I know after she offered help and the the if undid her gold necklace and jumped in the black car and they sped off . It was a family heirloom. It always happens in a quiet place. So no one else can help.
