Scam: they sold land plots in Elliniko that did not belong to them


A company intending to invest in property in Elliniko became a victim of fraud.

In particular, the sub-directorate for the protection of property rights, cultural heritage and the environment of the Attica Directorate revealed fraud against the company under the pretext of buying and selling particularly valuable real estate (plots of land) in Elliniko.

According to EL.AS., a corresponding application (complaint) was filed. The investigation revealed the activities of a criminal organization in the area. Moreover, during a police operation carried out on the morning of Saturday, December 16, 2023, 3 members of the organization were identified and arrested.

A criminal case has been initiated against them, as well as other participants (4 persons), on the facts of creating a criminal organization, fraud, forgery, false documentation, illegally completed (and proposed) transactions for the sale of property (land). The benefit from criminal activity exceeds 120,000 euros, which in itself constitutes money laundering and illegal processing of personal data.

Those arrested were taken to the competent prosecutor’s office, and the investigation into their involvement in other cases continues.
