Yakutia resident lost more than half a million rubles trying to make money on investments
Yakutia 24 TV channel: A resident of Mirny transferred over 500 thousand rubles to fraudsters, trying to raise money by investing.
According to the victim, he received a phone call of a foreign brokerage company employee, the branch of which is allegedly located in Moscow, who suggested that he invest money. He agreed and, after registering on their website, invested 300 dollars.
In mid-February 2020, the victim was called again and offered to earn some money. For this, false brokers asked to transfer 70 thousand rubles to the account they indicated, which the applicant did. The next day, the man received a call from a financial officer. The caller said that the transaction was successful, but to withdraw money he needs to transfer another 70 thousand rubles to their account. A resident of Mirny again went about it and, having issued a credit card, transferred the requested amount. After, the managers kept calling for a few days and told about the need to invest money, referring to successful transactions.
In total, the man transferred 528 thousand rubles to fraudsters, which he was taking on loan every time.
