A COURT in Marbella is investigating a potential card scam that allows cars without due authorisation to enter the Puerto Banus area.
So far two complaints have been filed at the National Police station, and legal action will be taken on them.
The concerning situation comes in the wake of changes to the electronic access system to the port, which in the summer is a popular attraction for wealthy tourists.
Cards are given to the owners of boats that have purchased a berth in the port, but it is believed that an illegal market for the purchase and sale of duplicate cards has arisen.
Buyers of these counterfeit cards believe they are purchasing them in good faith, but as soon as they have transferred their payment, the intermediary with which they have been arranging the deal cuts off all contact.
