A fine of 1.6 million BBVA for the involvement of an elderly woman in the case of contagion thieves.

Spain’s Data Protection Agency (AEPD) has fined BBVA 1.64 million euros for violating several articles of privacy rules in its handling of the case of an elderly woman whose card and bank account were stolen, along with their identity documents. With this information, the attackers signed up new credit cards linked to the stolen account, applied for loans, made fraudulent payments, transfers and opened new accounts in the victim’s name. Despite the fact that his relatives informed the subject, the criminals demanded the debt owed for months.

BBVA registered the elderly woman in several default files, which led to her being contacted by debt collection companies who forced her to pay overdrafts on her accounts that the criminals had caused.
