Caution! Scammers withdraw money from your accounts

10,000 euros flew away from the bank account of a 40-year-old man who became a victim of fraud when he tried to sell a mobile phone on an ad on the Internet.

According to law enforcement agencies, the attackers, posing as buyers, managed to obtain the victim’s bank data, and then transferred money from the victim’s account to their own through an electronic application.

The incident was reported in Thessaloniki after a 40-year-old man contacted the police. An investigation has begun. Currently, some information has been established on a 29-year-old girl who is allegedly involved in the case, and her accomplices are on the wanted list.

Recall that this is not the first case of such a fraud, when someone, selling an item (product) on the network, is faced with the fact that the buyer allegedly wants to transfer money to his current account and asks for the card data.

When the seller provides data (even without the pin code and secret number on the back of the card), the money still somehow incomprehensibly “leaves” from the seller’s account to the buyer’s account.

Be careful!
