Who is the man in the photo on the Glovo app? Paco Sanz is a scammer known in Spain
As the portal adds, the photo that appeared in the Glovo application is used as a meme. The photo shows Paco Sanz, a 52-year-old convicted in Spain for fraud. Francisco José Sanz González de Martos, this is the man’s full name, became recognizable in 2009-2017 when he reported to the media about a terminal illness (Cowden’s syndrome) he suffers from.
Many stars of Spanish show business have been involved in the fundraising for Paco Sanz. In the meantime, however, a police investigation revealed that the man’s disease was mild and initial. It turned out that the Spaniard was not going to die at all and had already received the necessary treatment. The man was given a very expensive and experimental drug for free in a clinical trial in the United States in 2011. During Paco Sanz’s arrest, he showed reporters a gesture of the middle finger, which was quickly used in the form of a mocking meme.
The Glovo app is a delivery startup founded in Barcelona in 2015 and operating in 26 countries. Previously, the app was hacked in May 2021.
