Due to an acute wave of fraudulent calls, police are issuing an urgent warning about what is a well-known scam.
Just how acute the problem of fraudulent calls is is also shown by the fact that the LPD Tirol felt compelled to write a “special press release” on Tuesday. Under the title “Current call fraud wave! Warning message to the population”, the executive branch draws attention to a phenomenon occurring more frequently.
According to the release, recent fraud attempts mainly affect the Schwaz district in the Zillertal area. Fraudsters pretend to be police officers or criminal investigators on the phone and try to lure out cash and valuables. Only last week, it was possible for an accused person who had already committed money delivery to be arrested for a related offense, which pleased the police in a dispatch.
The police request in the transmission to warn also the own member before such crook activities. Again and again, the criminals succeed in this way to capture jewelry and cash.
