SCAM ALERT: PENSIONERS CLAIM BRITISH CONWOMAN TRIED TO COAX THEM FROM BUS STOP INTO ‘FAKE SHUTTLE’ ON SPAIN’S COSTA DEL SOL

BRITISH pensioners have warned that an expat conwoman could be behind a Costa del Sol taxi scam.

The pair, both 75, claim they were confronted by the English woman on the Three Kings bank holiday as they waited for a bus at Arroyo bus stop in Benalmadena.

They told the Olive Press the woman, with a child in her car, told them the buses had been cancelled and they needed to board a shuttle, which was pulled up beside her.

She was ‘quite insistent’ and told them the driver of the 4×4 ‘shuttle’ had a town hall badge.

“We had heard about these scams in your paper and told her that we didn’t believe her,” one of the pensioners, who asked to remain anonymous, revealed.

“She insisted it was true and said the driver was official and had a badge.

“When we told her we would get a real taxi she said they will charge us treble on Three Kings’ Night and became oddly persistent.”

Alarmingly, he added that a foreigner appeared to be enticing a different pensioner across the road to get into the ‘shuttle’.

“At this point a bus came down and the English woman and ‘shuttle’ sped off.”

The expat branded the pair a disgrace.

“If he had a badge it was a forgery, and they were robbing the taxi drivers of business too, God knows what would have happened had we accepted the ‘free’ shuttle.

“Please warn everyone of this scam, it’s a disgrace!”
