Speculators no, but ordinary people who want to invest their savings yes.

They paid €125k for it 🤯; €45k was the projected current value apparently and that for a 45m2 'apartment'.

Ordinary people is on the ball, I doubt many with a business brain in their heads would have touched these with a barge pole.

Seemed like ordinary workers etc that were burnt

I know someone that went to Bulgaria at the time as they got caught up with the ol'spiel that was given to them originally.

When they got there, they just felt something wasn't right and stuck to their gut feeling and didn't invest. They said it seemed all very fake when they got there.

My brother got invited into a very elite group of investors. He and 2 friends bought apartments in a nudist holiday village in the south of France. Promise of high rental returns. Never had the heart to ask him what happened. I hadn't a Bean at the time and still don't.

He was probably stripped bare by the sounds of it.
