The Police are investigating a new case of online fraud and extortion of money with false representations. The case was reported by a 49-year-old resident of Nicosia, from whom it seems that an amount of money, over €77,000, was taken.
According to what the complainant reported, last March, she came into contact with an unknown person through a social networking platform.
The stranger allegedly urged her to invest money in a certain online platform that deals in cryptocurrency investments.
The 49-year-old, after being convinced by the stranger, transferred the sum of €77,200 from her bank account to the said platform. However, he later realized that he was a victim of a scam, after he found out that this platform is not real.
