Victim of the Phishing method, as it is called internationally, the famous singer fell, Ilias Vrettos, as he announced in a post on Instagram. Specifically, the singer received a message stating that his card was allegedly temporarily blocked and there was a link, through which he would supposedly be informed of what had happened.
And Elias Brettos did what the swindlers expected. "With this SMS and after I clicked the link, "They stole money from my bank account yesterday," said the famous singer. In essence, by clicking on the link, they got the "green light" to withdraw from his account.
Speaking to Mega, Elias Brettos, stressed that the fraudsters managed to make four transactions, after he put his details in the fake link.
"In two minutes they had made four transactions, which are pending until 2 June "he noted, stressing that he did what the bank asked him to do (password change, card cancellation), while he also challenged the transactions.
"Unfortunately, the dispute over the transactions can be completed in 1,5 – 2 months, which means that these transactions may be completed by then, "he added.
