Two elderly women were victims of scammers who presented themselves to them under the guise of employees of a state social organization. Visitors
reported on the replacement of documents with plastic documents, while discovering the amount of savings made by women.
Moreover, the scammers acted according to a well-known pattern: they asked to name the numbers of each banknote, so that later they could replace the savings with new money.
After that, a “colleague” approached the scammers to help them write a statement. When the women were looking for the required documents, one of the visitors was out of sight. As a result, after the departure of the “social workers”, the grandmothers lost 215,000 rubles and 742,000 rubles. In their place were banknotes for jokes, the press service of the Interior Ministry of Nizhny Novgorod clarified.
On the facts of fraud opened criminal cases.
