A 68-year-old woman became the victim of a telephone fraud, after handing over the money she called the police, reports the Regional Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs-Dobrich. On November 22, around 8:20 p.m., a 68-year-old woman became sad. According to the complainant, at around 18:00 she received a call on her home phone number from a woman posing as an employee of the Ministry of the Interior. By misrepresenting an ongoing crackdown on phone scammers, the alleged police officer demands a sum of money. The victim handed over the sum of BGN 610. Pre-trial proceedings have been initiated in the case.
On November 4, a woman from Kavarna handed over BGN 8,800 to an unknown woman after a phone call that money was needed for her grandson to keep his job. After days there is a phone scam in Tervel. Most often, phone scammers pretend to be police officers or come out with the version that someone is in the hospital and the relatives urgently need to send money for treatment. “There is an increase in cases of telephone fraud. Only on November 4 in Kavarna, in addition to the phone fraud of a 74-year-old woman for BGN 8,000, which she passed on for her grandson in order to keep her job in Sofia, several more such calls were received. Thanks to the quick and adequate actions of Ministry of Internal Affairs officials, no money was handed over during these fraud attempts,” said prosecutor Daniel Iliev from the District Prosecutor’s Office in Dobrich. According to Iliev, the reason for the recent increase in telephone fraud was due to the closure of the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office, which worked on the problem together with the DG “BDP”.
