The Paraguayan team were the victims of robbery on Monday May 17. The team had $100,000.00 in the hotelâ€™s lock box. A thief posing as a manager for the team asked hotel staff to open the lock box. The money was to pay for expenses while the team is training in pre-season games in the city of Evian les Bains, France.
The only question I have is: How would anyone else other than hotel staff and team staff know that cash was stored in the hotelâ€™s lock box? The other question is, wouldnâ€™t the Hilton Hotel staff know to call the person who deposited the money if it was ok to withdraw $100,000.00 in cash?
Paraguayan Football Association (APF) has hired a French attorney to recoup the losses from the Hilton hotel. The cash was to cover the teamâ€™s expenses while in Evian les Bains.
