The Elite Project Manager company is at the center of the scheme and manages the movement of a type of ticket rack, especially in Calvià and Alcùdia. They approached British tourists with the slogan ‘free holiday’. One of the qualifications shows that they are promised up to 40,000 euros free of charge. The only proof that tourists need is to buy some anti-diarrhea medicine. Along with them, a series of websites and law firms in the United Kingdom forwarded the claims.
