The gullible Uzhgorod
During June alone, the police recorded more than thirty facts of fraud in the regional center. Criminals cunningly gain the citizens' trust and cheat them out of their money. Most often they call their victims, telling horrible stories about their loved ones who allegedly got into trouble and have problems with the law, and immediately offer to "settle the issue" for a "reward." For example, this month, 7 reports from residents of such calls have been registered at the city police.
Another common type of fraud is a call from a pseudo-bank employee who aks unsuspecting citizens to disclose numbers of their bank cards.
In addition to telephone frauds, they also use the Internet. Under the pretext of selling goods, criminals ask potential buyers to pay in advance, and then disappear, and the purchase, of course, never arrives. In this way, criminals cheated 7 people during that month.
- Dear citizens! Uzhgorod police once again advises to be circumspect. Keeping your money in such cases depends on you. Do not trust strangers, and in suspicious situations contact the nearest police station or call "102".
