Endesa Electrician Scam

NRJ Calle Frigiliana OnLThis time it was con artists mascarading as electricitians from Sevillana-Endesa operating in Nerja and targeting elderly foreign residents.

Within the space of weeks these tricksters twice managed to hit the homes of elderly people living alone, getting away with valuables from around the house. One victim lost 3,000 euros in cash and jewellery valued at 21,000 euros.

The incidents took place in the centre of the town, on Calle Frigiliana, which is near La plaza del Olvido, as well as on Calle Canarias on the entrance road to Playa de Burriana.

These conmen, in order to make their visit more credible, phone up beforehand, saying that it was Endesa phoning, to say that they would be coming round. To distract the victim, once in the house, they would phone the house phone to keep the victim occupied.

But it’s not only in Nerja where robberies have been carried out because residents of the Viñuela reservoir have reported burglaries in empty houses scattered around the area. However, in one of these burglaries the thieves found the owners at home, who took refuge in a panic room within the dwelling.
