She made the mistake of replying to one of her banking e-mail messages and entered her e-banking security codes on a trap website.

Starting last October and within a few weeks, the 33-year-old woman from Florina saw her bank account being “systematically and steadily” emptied.

The 53-year-old who had fished for him in the murky waters of the internet, turned out to be fortunate for the same … amateur, since the Police quickly discovered his electronic traces and identified him in the first 3 transfers (1000 euros in total) that he made to his bank account .

A case file was filed against him for computer fraud and has already been submitted to the Florina Criminal Prosecutor.

On the occasion of the incident, the General Regional Police Directorate of Western Macedonia recalls some useful tips to avoid similar incidents of fraud, such as not replying to messages, not choosing the suggested links, not registering and not sending personal data and personal information, such as passwords, card numbers, etc., and to always and immediately inform the police authorities, even in the event of an attempted fraud against you.
