    Last Thursday I had my wallet stolen in a bar on the seafront of Benidorm.
    We were out with a large group of fellow Funsters in the Heartbreak bar, they spiked me, knocked me out for 4 hours.
    TAKE CARE FOLKS I THOUGHT IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ME BUT IT DID!!!!!
    Cheers

    I agree, it's not clear from the OP what happened and who did what to whom. I read it as a joke initially but perhaps it isn't. :)

    No idea who did the deed, we presume something was added to my beer, my wallet with the contents was lifted from my pocket in the bar in daylight, and the cards in it were tried in an ATM almost immediately according to my Bank, however it was very fortunate that I had the company of the Tapas crowd of Funsters who heroically managed to more or less carry me home and put me in a seat in our awning, from where I came round 4 hours later, at the time nobody realised what had happened, folk understandably just thought I had got very drunk. It was me who realised my wallet was missing when I came round, I have absolutely no recollection of leaving the bar. the trip home or anything for the 4 hours I was out for, it is just a complete blank.
    Cheers
    Ed

    Awful to read that Ed hard to believe after the fun times we all had in the heartbreak last couple of winters , just an example of the evil people out there watching and waiting an opportunity to pounce, but so glad to hear that you are ok and that the Beni funsters looked after you what a great bunch they are , enjoy the rest of your hols don' t let them spoil your fun take care

    That's what I immediately thought!

    ALWAYS keep wallets in front pockets when out and about

    I was not with the funsters on this occasion as I had only recently come out of hospital after a scare and am on antibiotics, so no alcohol. Ed and Shirl did come to visit me at my pitch on the morning after this incident. From what he told me, I deducted that someone behind the bar knows something about this, as when he went to ask if his wallet had been handed in they virtually threw him out of the bar. What concerns me most is that if some drug had been administered to someone with a heart condition. Then this could well be a case of murder.

    How did they steal your wallet if you were with a group of other people?

    Sorry to hear about the wallet loss, that's bad enough but the drink being spiked is terrible..
    As you know I'm a regular to Benidorm and have heard reports of this before and certain bars seem to be known for it.
    My wallet never leaves the apartment, just cash for the day....

    Oh Ed, this is shocking. When we first read it last night we also thought it was a joke. As said previously, thank goodness you were in the company of good friends
    Made me remember last year, Daz bought me a drink and a short time later I feel onto the ground. My drink must have been spiked ha,ha,ha. Same bar.

    All joking aside, this is awful, hope you are okay. Thanks for posting as it may help others be aware of the scumbags that are everywhere. Enjoy the rest of your stay.

    Cally and Tony x
