Fraudsters cheated two Uzhgorod residents

A resident of Uzhgorod district transferred to the offender's account more than 26,000 UAH for a "bought" tractor, and a 40-year-old resident of Uzhgorod "purchased" furniture for 3,600 UAH...


A 44-year-old resident of Uzhgorod district reported to Uzhgorod city police that an unknown person had fraudulently seized his cash in the amount of 26,000 UAH. 

It turned out that the man wanted to buy a tractor on one of the popular Internet sites. He found an ad, called the number and agreed with the "seller" on the price. But the fraudster demanded partial prepayment. The rest of the money was to be transferred after receiving the vehicle. The man transferred the advance payment to the bank account of the "seller". However, he never received the "bought" vehicle. And of course, he did not receive his money back...

A similar incident happened to a 40-year-old resident of Uzhgorod. The woman wanted to buy furniture. On one of the sites, she found what she was looking for. In a telephone conversationm she agreed with the "seller" on the price of the goods, transferred 3,600 UAH to his account, but never received the "purchase"...

Once again, we encourage citizens to be careful and cautious. Before making payment or deposit, check reviews of users, who have already used the web resource of your choice, and assessed the quality of the goods or services. Insist on paying only after receiving the goods.

Remember that keeping your money in such cases depends on you only. And if you were cheated after all, be sure to contact the police department or call to "102".
