Police inspection Stralsund: scammers with the same procedure successfully

A 69-year-old German woman from Bergen auf Rügen wanted to sell via an Internet portal, a household article and a sale called price in the amount of 500 Euro. After a short time, a supposed prospective buyer notified via a short message service (SMS) in the case of the 69-Year-old. This was informed in the course of further communication, which was carried out by E-Mail, that he was transfer ready 800 Euro, if the Victim would send the item via shipping. The Victim agreed and received by E-Mail, how, in retrospect, turned out, fake certificate on the receipt of 800 Euro. The alleged suspect asked the Victim now, the 250-Euro shipping costs to be transferred to a Dutch account. Only then the shipping company would pick up the article. After the Victim had transferred the money, broke the contact with the suspects. In the case of research, the 69 found-Year-old then, she's become a victim of a fraud and decided to show the refund at the nearest police station. To make matters worse, the Victim sent the suspect a copy of your photo ID, so that it is not impossible that your data will be used for the Commission of further offences.

Similarly, it ran for a 43-year-old German. He advertised in the newspaper, via an Internet portal, car rims. Here, too, an alleged prospective buyer responded promptly by email and was in addition to the purchase price of 300 Euro for the shipping to pay a forwarding company. Again a fake proof for the Bank Transfer of the total amount was sent to the Injured party. As a result, the in Bergen auf Rügen living man paid the 300 euros to a UK Bank account. Only later he found out that he has fallen victim to scammers.

In both cases, the police has started the investigation on suspicion of fraud.
