The Ionian Islands Regional Police Directorate General announces that a recent incident has been reported to a Kefalonia Police Directorate, fraudulent telephone fraud on the pretext of a refund.

In particular, the perpetrator contacted a pensioner by phone, pretended to be a bank employee, and on the pretext that he won a retroactive claim, he received a sum of money.
