Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.

Why is she sending money to spain?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
She has been scammed
She has mental illness but has taken out personal.loans to.send to these people
But they keep.asking for money which she keeps sending
It is under pretence that she is helping to renovate a apartment in Spain
Am guessing but think they are saying if don't pay will.loose all.money

Ok. What is it you want to achieve?
What do you want to ask me?

At this moment would rather to keep.to your advice as have only come on here for that advise
So do I report to plo

Police.

This could be fraud. But sadly it is only the Police who can take action.

They can send it to the Police in Spain and follow the money

You could issue proceedings, but the reality is the money has probably gone.

So the Police can trace it and recover it as best they can. They have far more wide sweeping powers than a civil Court.

So prevent her from sending more money and report it asap.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

Thankyou I will report to police
But I know a talk is expensive
But can my wife be liable in this as she is very vulnerable with her mental health
They keep.changing bank addresses and name if person has to.be sent to
She has fallen for it big time
Its upto at least 14000 at this moment as far as I know

No. She would not have the capacity.

As such, she can not be liable for any future losses.

Does that assist?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Also she will not provide bank statement unless she has to under law
We are going through divorce at moment because of this as they have convinced her

Correct.

Does that assist?
