The attacker through social networks contacted a respectable Greek lady who lives on the island of Crete. The man introduced himself as Keanu Reeves. “Handsome from Hollywood” said that he urgently needed financial support. The money is needed to pay taxes and get the rights to the movie in which he starred. The liar pressed pity and promised to pay everything back with interest when things go uphill.
The Greek woman, deeply moved, decided to save the American movie star. In total, she transferred around €150,000 to four different foreign bank accounts before she suspected something was wrong. Doubts arose only after Keanu Reeves, who suddenly appeared, also suddenly disappeared.
Later, the woman contacted the police. The incident is currently being handled by law enforcement officers. According to preliminary data, a whole group of at least six people participated in the criminal plot. The day before, law enforcement officers arrested a local citizen and five Nigerian men, who are due to appear in court soon.
