A citizen of Ukraine organized the activities of a call center in Israel, whose employees embezzled more than UAH 5 million.
Law enforcement officials in Ukraine exposed a 40-year-old organizer of a transnational fraudulent call center, who embezzled more than five million hryvnias. This was announced on Thursday, June 1 by the National Police of Ukraine.
It was noted that the victims of the offenders were citizens of Israel.
“The attackers called potential victims, pretending to be representatives of banks or the police. People made sure that unauthorized people had gained access to their bank accounts and were about to plan to steal money,” the report said.
It is known that in order to “save” the savings, the scammers offered the victims to withdraw money on their own and transfer it to the so-called “courier” from the bank. After that, the money is said to be credited to a “safe account”.
The activities of the call center organizer were exposed by employees of the CyberPolice Department along with the Investigation Department of the Zaporozhye Region Police, employees of the Office of the Prosecutor General and Israeli law enforcement officials.
The police raided the house of the scheme’s organizer and stopped the fraudulent call center’s activities. At the same time, searches were conducted in Israeli territory, where law enforcement officials detained two men who acted as “couriers”.
Earlier it was reported that in the Kirovohrad region, swindlers took possession of farmers’ products worth 7 million hryvnias.
