EL.AΣ. warning: beware of scammers

For another deception of citizens, warns EL.AΣ., the criminals use the data of the Secretary General for Public Order Konstantinos Tsouvalos.

The email scam is that a citizen receives letterissued “by all the rules”, with the image of the (fake) Greek flag and logos of the Ministry of Citizens’ Protection and the Greek Police. EL.AS warns that this time the data of the Secretary General for Public Order Konstantinos Tsouvalas are being used. In the text of the letter, with spelling errors, it is reported that the recipient is under investigation.

Allegedly, a child pornography case has been opened against him, and he immediately needs to contact Mr. Tsuwala by e-mail. At the same time, the data of the general secretary are indicated with errors – both the name and the position held: police officer Τσουβίλας, in charge of civil protection with a European office, in cooperation with the National Center for the Analysis of Pornographic Images CNAIP Mr. a. (Τσουβίλας, αξιωματικός, Έλληνας αστυνομικός υπεύθυνος πολιτικής προστασίας με το ευρωπαϊκό γραφείο, σε συνεργασία με το Εθνικό Κέντρο για την Ανάλυση Εικόνων Πορνογραφικών CNAIP κ.α.).

At the end of the letter, EL.AΣ.’s warning says, there is a forged signature and a false seal. The Greek police urge citizens not to respond to the letter, delete it and in no case open attachments – this can lead to a malware attack, writes CNN Greece.
