Dead woman's credit cards stolen
Daily News19.09.2018 - At the end of August, the National Police arrested a 29-year-old ambulance technician in Arrecife, Lanzarote, who took a woman who had collapsed unconscious on the street to hospital by ambulance. Despite the resuscitation efforts during the trip, the woman could not be revived. Shortly afterwards, the victim's ex-husband filed a complaint because a large number of debits had been made to a joint account, resulting from purchases made with two cards that the deceased had with her at the time of her death. Thus, €1,453 were debited and another payment of €2,087 was blocked by the bank. The purchases were made in different shops and hotel reservations were paid via Internet.

Therefore, the Social Welfare Office granted him help in the form of food, the provision of household items and home care service. He is free to accept a place in the home or to return to his house after it has been repaired. The building was bricked up to prevent squatters from settling in and endangering their lives. more...
