A man from Limassol has been scammed for €178,500 on a fictitious car


 

According to police on Friday, a 48-year-old man in Limassol was conned out of €178,500 that he believed was used to purchase a car.

The individual claimed to have made an agreement to purchase a new car with a car sales company. Following the agreement, he received an email pretending to be from the company in question.

It requested that he make two payments to a new bank account in order to satisfy the invoice, claiming that the company’s bank account had supposedly been altered.

On June 6 and 7, the 48-year-old proceeded to transfer €89,250 to the new bank account.

He was told the company had never sent him an email like that, so when he spoke with them on the phone, he found out he had been the victim of fraud.

The case is being looked into by Limassol CID’s Financial Crime Investigation Bureau.

The public was advised by the police to be very wary of these emails and to contact the company to be sure before sending any money.
