The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed the operation 'Sanirun', an investigation aimed at clarifying an alleged crime of fraud in Mula, which has resulted in the arrest of a person allegedly engaged in fraud by the thymus of the 'tinted banknotes'.

The operation was initiated to investigate the facts denounced by a citizen of Mula who reported the alleged commission of a very peculiar scam.

One person contacted the complainant in order to purchase a considerable number of products from his company.

At the first meeting the alleged buyer was already trying to gain the complainant's confidence with his appearance and language, and then propose a "round business".

After establishing a bond of trust and parallel to the negotiation of purchase, the fraudster proposed to obtain a greater benefit by multiplying their cash.

He gave him an on-site demonstration of how he was able to convert plain paper into apparent legal tender notes, using a series of chemicals and some real notes.

To arrange the second appointment with the employer, the alleged buyer proposed to him to contribute a considerable amount of money, which, using the method that had taught him previously, multiplied several times the original amount, thus achieving a remarkable benefit both .

At the time of the process of tinting the banknotes, the employer provides a large amount of cash and the scammer gets down to work with its supposed process of 'tinting', to multiply, in this case, by three original tickets through the use of original tickets, paper cuttings and some chemical products.

In the process of 'tinting', the scammer managed to mislead the victim and steal all the cash he had contributed, obtaining the latter a package with paper cuts without further value.

The operation carried out by the Civil Guard has allowed the alleged fraudster to be surprised, for which reason he has been arrested and brought to justice as an alleged perpetrator of the crime of fraud.

La Benemérita continues with the operation in order to identify possible collaborators of the now arrested, as well as clarify more criminal acts in which it could be involved.

Seized effects

During the arrest of the alleged swindler, the civil guards have seized the objects used in the development of the criminal activity, such as liquids for the dyeing of banknotes, bundles of cardboard cutouts, powders, gloves, adhesive tapes, etc.

The arrested Cameroonian, of 47 years, resident in Murcia and with antecedents for similar crimes, the recovered effects and the educated diligences have been put at the disposal of the Court of Instruction number 1 of Mula (Murcia).

Scam of the 'negative' or the 'tinted banknotes'

In this type of fraud, the alleged perpetrators propose to their victims to 'multiply' legal tender notes by printing blank papers.

To do this, a chemical process is used, consisting in the introduction of a legal tender between two blank papers of the same size as the original ticket.

If in the first demonstration the victim has 'stung', he remains a second time with the scammers and delivers large amounts of money to carry out the chemical process.

But on this occasion the alleged perpetrators exchange the tickets for white papers and tell the victim that the transformation process is slow.

Finally the scammers leave with the good bills and the victim is left with paper cutouts

In this case and to make sure they were not detected, the scammers told the victim that he had to leave the package closed for a time until he was supplied with a last chemical to make the process successful.
