Another scam was reported yesterday at the TAE Limassol.

As reported by the Police, a 78-year-old woman complained yesterday that she received a phone call from an unknown person who spoke Greek. Under the pretense of earning money from an investment they made in the past, he asked her for her bank account details, which she gave him in order to deposit money for her.

The stranger gained full control of her account. It appears from examinations that from May 26 to June 21 there were 7 remittances of 376.524 and other transactions of 9 thousand.

A successful refund of 131 thousand euros was made with the bank's efforts and therefore the total amount that was taken from it, after the refund, amounts to 255 thousand euros.
