FRAUDSTERS posing as cops stole €3,3million (R48,2 million) from a Swiss woman.
The Swiss media reported on Wednesday that a woman suspect first contacted the victim in Zurich in November. She posed as a cop who claimed to be investigating a network of thieves.
The woman was told employees at her bank were planning to rob her. The suspects asked the woman to keep details of their investigation secret. They then instructed her to transfer her assets to a new account through a series of payments. The police are investigating the scam. – NEWS24
