So, in Chuvashia, criminal investigation officers detained a 19-year-old Novosibirsk resident. She stole 1 million 245 thousand rubles from six pensioners. Before that, the granddaughter of a 99-year-old city dweller submitted an application to the Ministry of Internal Affairs for Cheboksary with a statement about fraud.
The girl said that her grandmother received a call and said that her granddaughter was responsible for the accident. You can buy. The accident was later revealed to be fictional.
The police immediately detained a 19-year-old Novosibirsk resident at the suburban bus station, who was a courier in the fraudulent scheme “Your relative had an accident”. Already in the apartment, it turned out that another Cheboksary resident at the age of 91 and four Kostroma pensioners became victims of the scammer. And on the same day in Udmurtia, the police detained a courier who stole more than 500 thousand rubles from pensioners.
The grandmother received a call and was told that her granddaughter was to blame for the accident. but you can redeem
The deception scheme remained the same.
An 84-year-old pensioner who called introduced herself as a friend and said that she had been in an accident and someone was injured because of her. In order to free herself from responsibility for her, she asked the pensioner to transfer 1 million rubles to a young man who would arrive. Since the old woman did not have such an amount, she handed over 75,000 rubles to the courier. And the person she called introduced herself as the daughter of an 89-year-old pensioner and, under the same pretext, she gave 500,000 rubles to a young man whom she drove to her house. The scammer was caught. It turned out to be a 19-year-old unemployed local resident who had already been convicted of robbery. He received addresses in one of the messengers, transferred the money stolen from retirees in shopping centers to his bank card, and later sent it to the accounts indicated in the messages, keeping a part for himself. The couriers face up to 6 years in prison.
But in St. Petersburg, it was the courier who did not allow the old man to be robbed. His “employers” sent it to the address where the old man delivered the envelope to the courier. The courier realized that it was money and the delivery address looked suspicious.
And before delivering the envelope, the messenger appeared at the police station. There he was thanked, the money was returned to the pensioner. But if the customers were caught, the police have yet to say.
