A new case of online fraud and extortion of an amount exceeding 135 thousand euros is being investigated by the Police, following a complaint filed by a 58-year-old man.

According to the complaint, the 58-year-old, last December, found on an online social networking platform, an advertisement for a company that was presented as being based in a foreign country and that in the next two to three years it would enter the stock market, generating financial profits. After the 58-year-old was convinced to buy shares in the company, after contacting the suspected advertisers, he initially proceeded to transfer the sum of 26,000 euros, to a bank account indicated to him by the suspects, in a bank based in a second foreign country.< /p>

Subsequently, the 58-year-old proceeded to transfer two more sums of money, totaling 110,350 euros, to a bank account indicated to him by the suspects, to a bank based in a third country abroad, for the purchase of shares in a second company , which was also presented as immediately entering the stock market and generating large profits.

After the period of time had passed, during which, according to the allegations of the suspects to the 58-year-old, the monetary profits would be sent to him from the his investment, however, without any profits being sent to him until April and since the suspects continued to ask for more money from the 58-year-old under various pretexts, he suspected that he had been defrauded and filed a complaint with the Police.
