It was reported to the Police, by a 68-year-old, that at the beginning of July 2022, he made a transfer of 520 thousand euros, which related to an agreement for the purchase of houses in a complex in Limassol.

The complainant proceeded with the transfer, after a (fraudulent) message he received via e-mail, from a specific company, with which he agreed to buy the residences.

After examination, the complainant found that he was a victim of fraud, since the company that manages the sale of the houses, never received such an amount, and also does not maintain the bank account (Great Britain) to which the money was transferred.

TAE Limassol continues the examinations.
