A gang that ripped off over 300 thousand euro through hacking e-mails and bank account details has been arrested by the Guardia Civil. 12 individuals led by a couple of Moroccans were detained in Alicante as well as Granada and Mallorca under Operation Transfer.

They allegedly targeted businesses across Europe, including an electricity company in Lugo and the Town Hall in the Granada area village of Ferreira, by obtaining bank account details of legitimate businesses and then laundering payments to their own accounts. Besides Spain, other countries that were hit included Austria, Bosnia, Brazil, Germany, and Switzerland.
