They came to Poland from Ukraine. They pretended to be bank employees

A gang of fraudsters extorting money was caught by the police. They face up to 8 years of imprisonment.

We often write about the next ones insidious methods of cybercriminalswho manage to deceive unaware victims. However, we rarely report when a fraud ring is caught. Tracking down such individuals is not easy at all, all the more applause for the policemen who in the Łódź Voivodeship they detained the group responsible for extorting money.

Three Ukrainian citizens were detained by the police

One of the ways in which fraudsters trick Poles is: impersonating a bank employee or a policeman. This is exactly how three Ukrainian citizens operated, recently detained by the Łódź police, with the support of police officers from other units.

The fraud occurred in February this year in the Chełm district, and its victim was a 58-year-old man. First, he received a phone call from a person pretending to be a bank employee who asked for confirmation of his willingness to take out a loan. Immediately afterwards, “another bank employee” called and argued that an attempt to extort money was detected on the data of a resident of Chełm County. He suggested that the man change the security measures and instructed him what to do step by step. The 58-year-old followed the instructions and provided the interlocutor with the access codes received in the messages. This allowed the perpetrators to take over his account. In this way The perpetrators stole over PLN 200,000.

The matter of identifying the perpetrators of the fraud was handled by Chełm police officers from the Department for Combating Economic Crime. Together with police officers from the Provincial Police Headquarters in Lublin and Łódź, in the Łódź Voivodeship they detained two Ukrainian citizens, aged 20 and 22, and a 33-year-old from Georgia, suspected of committing a crime. The court placed them under police supervision.

However, this is not the end of the police’s successes, as last weekend in the Łódź Voivodeship arrested further suspects. This time they were it three citizens of Ukraine. The suspects were placed under pre-trial arrest for a period of 3 months. Fraudsters face up to 8 years in prison.
