The Florina Security Department is conducting a preliminary investigation into the case.
On the occasion of this incident, the General Regional Police Directorate of Western Macedonia reminds some useful tips to the citizens to avoid their deception:
- Avoid advancing money to private sellers, whom they do not know, even if they disclose their details or their bank account number.
- Be especially wary when they find ads selling items at tempting prices, as a "market opportunity".
- Seek meeting scheduling (appointment) for demonstration of the vehicle to be done in busy places and places and not in deserted locations, for security reasons.
- In case they find out that they have fallen victim to fraud, please notify the Police immediately, even in the event of an attempted fraud against them.
It is emphasized that the perpetrators avoid personal presence with the victims, seeking solely telephone communication with them, through various telephone connections or the mediation of third parties, to minimize the risk of their detection and arrest.
