THE SPANISH CIVIL GUARD has dismantled a criminal gang that extorted and threatened men who used the internet to obtain the services of sex workers. A total of 22 arrests have been made, while another 18 suspects are under investigation.

The so-called Operation Calaveda uncovered at least 65 alleged crimes by the gang, which operated between Madrid, Santander and Barcelona

The investigation began after a police complaint was filed in Castilla y León in 2021 by a man who, shortly after using the Internet to seek sexual services, began receiving threats via his phone and text messages demanding money.

The messages included promises that a hitman would be sent to the victim if he did not pay.

The gang is alleged to have closely investigated the private lives of its victims, as well as sending images of mutilated, decapitated and amputated bodies in an attempt to intimidate them.

According to the Civil Guard, the calls came from phone numbers in both Spain and the Dominican Republic, while the calls were made by people with a Latin American accent.

The gang would receive the extorted funds through the bank accounts of numerous ‘mules’ at their disposal.

The Civil Guard claimed that the gang had tried to extract up to €110,000 from their practices, but had only gotten around €30,000.
