Fiorentina cheated for 1.6 million euros: 11 arrests in Barcelona

A bad story that emerged (about) a year ago and which, yesterday, came to fruition. in fact, it was the Spanish portal that launched the news: eleven people, Spanish and Pakistani citizens, were arrested by the Barcelona police. Members of a criminal network that laundered money, the men of the gang allegedly cheated Fiorentina for about 1.6 million euros with the technique known as “man in the middle”entering into a communication (via email) between the purple club and Perform Investment (to which the broadcaster Dazn belongs), which had to pay that sum for the broadcasting rights of the matches into the company’s coffers. The arrested, in practice, pretended to be representatives of the company, making sure that the money ended up in their hands. The story dates back to 2018, the year in which, once the non-payment was reported by Fiorentina, the fraud was discovered. Perform Investment, however, had made the payment with a second bank transfer.
