Will you, at the age of 82, throw 150,000 PLN out of the window? Police officer scam.


The 82-year-old answered the phone and was informed that there were burglars in the block. The person who deceived her was a woman impersonating a policewoman.

Unfortunately, the woman was manipulated. She packed 150,000 in a plastic bag and ... threw them over the balcony to be "secured" by the police. What did the scammers do next. They took the bag with the money and ran away.

Why do older people get fat? Probably too much trust in people and especially in the services. Lack of knowledge about fraud trends. Such a person is unlikely to use the Internet, so there is no way to be informed what scams exist and whether similar cases have already happened.
