They were sanctioned for not fulfilling the obligation to register in their internal documentation the author of this request.

The accusations of the president of Madrid's Regional Comunnity to Metodo 3 of acting with the complicity of the Interior Minister, Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, refers to the close relations between Marita Fernandez and Alejandro Pérez Rubalcaba, brother of the minister.

Metodo 3 also appeared in the investigation that was conducted to find the girl Madeleine McCann, who disappeared in southern Portugal, a case that reached a very high profile in the media. The agency was hired by the girl's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann.

Metodo 3 was also in Paris who found the economist and spy Francisco Paes, who supposedly had died. Paesa was who delivered to the then Interior Minister, Juan Alberto Belloch, the fugitive Luis Roldan, in exchange for keeping some of the money that he had stolen. Subsequently, he faked his own death in Thailand.

In Catalonia, the agency appeared in the prosecution investigation regarding reports of questionable utility for the Catalan government. A Metodo 3 agent gave a statement to the prosecution about his involvement in the preparation of a report commissioned by the Ministry of Agriculture. Allegedly, the Government paid 30,000 euros for this report.
