It's been going on some time, and people get quite aggressive when the scam is criticized ... they argue that these "claims gatherers" are just doing a job, and they need the income. It's a bit like Millers leaflets in that they cause a problem but you can't complain without generating abuse from those you're trying to "deprive of an income" ...

The British and Spanish Governments have been working on this for some time

The Canarian Tourism Institute has announced that two British people have been arrested on suspicion of falsely claiming to have received food poisoning in their Majorca hotel. The Guardia Civil apprehended the pair last Friday, and say that this is the first case of its kind based on the instigation by British legal firms of claims of illness caused to British tourists by Spanish hotels. They also say that more prosecutions will come, throughout Spain.

A couple from Liverpool got caught out on this one as the hotel called up their account which had 109 alcoholic drinks on it.  Whoops.

love the comments underneath that say that 6 drinks a day every day for 9 days was quite normal and not at all excessive ...

Remember that these people were on an all-inclusive holiday so drinks were included in the price. If you're the kind of holidaymaker who stays by the hotel pool, I'd think six all-inclusive drinks per day would be very easy to achieve.
