Fake NIE Numbers are a growing problem in Spain. Time and again we are hearing stories of people who have made up a NIE Number to obtain a job or service is Spain not realising the possible consequences.
What is a fake NIE Number?
An official NIE Number issued by the Spanish Police will start with a letter, followed by seven numbers and another letter in the end, for example D – 758372 – B. Your NIE number is unique to you and is non transferable nor does it expire. A Fake NIE Number is a number sequence made up with has no official use, and has not been issued by the Spanish Government/Police.
We would like to be 100% clear. Using a Fake or illegal NIE Number is not a great idea. Not only could proving a fake number to your employer possibly cost you your job in Spain but it could also lead to criminal proceedings being taken against you for fraud.
