Unfortunately a friend of mine had the same issue. He got drugged by 3 ladies that took him around. Woked up with a huge hangover (too much for 2 beers), not remembering anything from the second beer on, and with 20K pesos and about 200eur missing from his wallet. Don’t think they got the bank account.
