BEWARE, BEWARE

  • Please everyone be aware that the pick pockets are about and are rife in the Mercadona, Playa Arena. Three of my friends have had their wallets/purses snatched in the past week. There is no security guard as Mercadona says they only do that in the summer. The scam is someone asks you to reach something for them while their mate pinches your money. So please be extra vigilant and tell your friends.

  • Here we go again, every year coming up to Christmas this happens.

    Its very upsetting to have money stolen but when you find your driving license, ID etc have gone too its worse than loosing the money.  The hassle of getting these papers replaced is a task I never want to repeat again.

    For a small cost of around Euros 5 per document you can get your driving license, passport, residential notarised.  The notary will photocopy your document then officially stamp it.  These notarised documents are accepted by the Guardian Civil.  Leave your originals in a safe place

    There is a Notary in the new shopping centre in Alcala.  Well worth the trip.

  • A friend of ours had her purse snatched in Mercadona by two women.
    Also last week two women stole a mans wallet in one of the Ferreterias in Puerto Santiago.
    Both of these cases involved residents.
    Mercadona are not interested and have stated that they only have Security in the summer.

  • Mercadona must have reconsidered as they had a security guard on today.  Very busy too
