Lately, various kinds of scams have flourished in Greece. Moreover, the activities of cunning malefactors are aimed not only at individuals, but also at enterprises.
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Volos is attracting the attention of shopkeepers after discovering cases of fraud with social assistance coupons.
In particular, some individuals call unsuspecting shop owners on behalf of the Volos Chamber of Commerce (Εμπορικός Σύλλογος του Βόλου) and ask for financial assistance. As indicated in the information, it is carried out by purchasing vouchers (as part of social policy support). That is, the company is allegedly called by a representative of the Chamber of Commerce and with a heartfelt voice convinces them to “help the needy” and “do a good deed”, and for this you need to “simply redeem the coupons.”
In fact, the official representatives of the Chamber of Commerce say that they have nothing to do with cases of fraud, the authorities have already been informed and understand the issue.
