A fraudster cheated a Transcarpathian of more than 16,000 UAH
The offender called the victim on a mobile phone under the guise of buyer of the goods that she had put up for sale on the Internet.
Recently, a 50-year-old resident of Irshava filed a complaint with Irshava district police. The woman told about the trouble, which she had found herself in through her own credulity.
The day before she had put up a hot dog cart for sale in the Internet. Later, an unknown person called her and said that he was buying the cart. However, she had to tell the number of her credit card account to have the money transferred. Of course, the woman was glad and provided the swindler all the necessary data for payment transaction... As a result, the funds in the amount of 16,670 UAH were withdrawn from her bank card.
Realizing that she had been cheated, the victim appealed to the police. This incident is registered in the Unified register, and classiified under Part 1 of Art.190 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (fraud). The offender is wanted.
