Bank statements and if there are any signs of misappropriation, go to the police, make a Police Report and contact the bank or company that was defrauded. In case of retirees and pensioners we also recommend going to INSS personally and requesting the history of all loans made in your name: with date, amounts, terms and name of financial institutions.
