Corfu, August 21 , 2019


The Ionian Islands Regional Police Directorate-General reports that two incidents have recently been reported to the Zakynthos Police Directorate, a telephone fraud of a pensioner on the pretext of a refund.

In particular, the perpetrators contacted pensioners by phone, pretended to be a bank employee, and on the pretext that they had won a retro-payment lawsuit, they had taken money.

In view of the above, we recommend that citizens be particularly cautious of anyone trying to persuade them to pay money into suspected and alleged bank accounts.

Finally, please inform the Police authorities immediately in any case that you perceive such conduct, even in the case of fraud attempt.
