As reported by the Delegation of the Spanish Government in the Basque Country, the investigation, conducted by agents of Group I of UCRIF, of the Provincial Immigration and Border Brigade of Bilbao, began six months ago when the immigration agents learned that a man was using other people to illegally collect aid from the Basque Employment Service (Lanbide).

Meanwhile, others are committed to rent and register houses to the alleged people in the houses.

To reach your goal, forged passports and registration certificatesso that they could prove that a person had been registered in the Basque Country for three years, a necessary condition to be able to receive the aid, and thus to collect from the first moment they created the false identity.
