AND Roquetas del MarThe Town Hall of Roquetas del Mar (Almería) had the unpleasant experience of having one of its bank accounts hacked.

Thanks to the rapid investigative work carried out by the Guardia Civil, the money has been recovered, amounting to over half a million euros, although some accounts put it  closer to 800,000 euros.

It was last Thursday that the Town Hall discovered the cyber theft and got straight onto the police. The bank account in question is one that is used to pay the salaries of everybody from the Policía Local to the Mayor himself

The money evaporated as soon as it left the account, leaving no intitial trail, so the Guardia Civil called upon the help of International cyber-crime units, just in case the goodies had already left the country.

Although the money has since been recovered, the investigation continues because so far there have been no arrests.
