Three Year Prison Sentence For Posing As A Representive Of Digital +
Received Commissions on 44 Fraudulent Contracts

The Audiencia Provincial de Albacete sentenced to three years imprisonment a man for a continuing offense of fraud and other false documents when he pose as a provider of Digital + and received commissions for fraudulent sales, in a statement issued by the company today.

The convict, ACG, got from two official distributors of Digital + decoders, satellite dishes and blank subscription forms for subscribers who than completed and returned by ACG allegedly signed by new customers.

"This would generate confidence that official distributors were providing more equipment and also continue to collect the appropriate commercial fees," says the note.

Sometimes the prisoner, who has already admitted to the Albacete, filled out the forms with fictitious names and data, and other times with information from people they knew, residence or employment, "merging data with each other. According to Digital +, none of these people knew their name was fraudulently being used.

The scam was discovered when all of the invoices were returned as fictitious customers.

The fake 44 contracts that were made out defrauded Digital + of 22,499 euros, an amount that was paid in full to the pay-TV platform from the two distribution companies, which have been condemned as vicarious liability of the scheme.
