He went to the bank and asked what happenned and they were less than helpful. Apparently the person used a bank book that had been unused for 8 years. He asked how they managed to use it without ID and they were very non-committal. They said it was his responsibility, and that they would look into it over the next 3-4 weeks (la Caixa).
it all seems very fishy to me and i wondered if there is a Citizens advice bureau, banking code or government insurance covering scams of this type in spain as they have in the UK. It sounds like a Phishing scam to me, but as the bank are unwilling to give details of the transactions, where does he go from here?
Any advice would be appreciated.
hi when i go to the bank and they know who i am i dont get asked for id,if a new person is there and they dont know me i allways get asked for some sort of proof of id,i dont know how anyone could have taken the money out of your friends acount without showing some sort of id.dont make sence.
