The man was convinced that they are trying to steal funds from a bank card

A man living in the Leninsky district of Voronezh was allegedly called from the bank’s security department and convinced that fraudsters were trying to steal funds from his card. But the scammers turned out to be those who made the calls: the victim transferred funds to the account of the attackers and the connection with them was interrupted. This was reported by “AiF-Voronezh” with reference to the regional Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

It is known that the 32-year-old man received 48 calls from different numbers over the course of several hours, posing as bank employees and law enforcement officers. As a result, they convinced the victim to transfer the 740 thousand rubles on the card to a safe account. He was advised to do this through a bank terminal. After the man followed the instructions and transferred the money to the specified account, the connection with the scammers was interrupted.

In total, over the past day in Voronezh and the region, fraud was reported 12 times. It is known that the total damage is approximately 1.5 million. The police ask you to be more careful and careful in conversations with strangers, especially when it comes to personal and banking data.
