I bought a tablet at a shop on the promenade in Las Americas next to MacDonalds walking towards Los Cristianos. lt was £114. When I got home they had taken £1114. Beware. The only name I have got is the name on my bank statement -VIVIR EN EL ADEJE.

Ref Scam in Tenerife
by: Mrs Morgan

It's happened to us buying a tablet and case and they took 2,600 out of the bank it shopper stop. They are from India they need to be stopped. Don't think I will be going back to Tenerife in the near future. It has put me off which I am sad about.

Credit Card Fraud is RIFE in TeneRIFE
by: Anonymous

I was also ripped off by these Indian b-----rds
in October 2016 to the tune of £3500 for an electric tablet.
Barclaycard are STILL trying to contact the shop in question which is situated in Los Cristianos and known as SHOPPER STOP the address of which is Tobacco Bay, Edificio Bucanero 12,Paseo Martimo,
Los Cristianos 38500 s/c Tenerife.
These cheating Indian so called shopkeepers have been operating this fraudulent practice since 2007 according to the web site "Information Tenerife" without any intervention of the local police.
The other big question is why the credit card companies (in my case BARCLAYCARD) can action such a large transaction by a tourist in a foreign land without any contact with the unfortunate duped person.
