Careful now in train stations even after security

Jump to last reply

Just a head's up. A close friend's elderly mother was robbed past security getting on the Euromed in Valencia going to Barcelona. A well dressed group of women came up to them and kept asking them where car 7 was.. pointing here and there and trying to engage them.. which they did.. unfortunately. When my friend's mother went to climb up onto the train she realized her purse had been stolen from her.

So now these thieves are getting tickets to get INTO the secure area and then mixing with the crowd that is leaving the station once they have robbed people.

Beware, all. When my friend arrived in Barcelona to also make them aware of the situation, and to reissue the stolen ticket, the office was full of foreigners that had been robbed at Sants station.

Unfortunately, when my friend tried to catch the train back to Valencia with the re-issued ticket, somehow it had been cancelled since the thieves were able to cash in the one they robbed ( in spite of having denounced the theft) and were given a refund, thus invalidating my friend's re-issued ticket. Another good reason to pay with a credit card instead of cash. The thieves could not have gotten a refund so easily, if the person had asked for an ID, if it had been purchased with a CC.

Sad story. I felt things had settled down a bit but it seems this is a never-ending story. Most upsetting to my friend and her mother was the lack of emotion and concern the authorities anywhere demonstrated.
