At the end of last month, unidentified persons called the 56-year-old Vartovian from different subscriber numbers and offered him to download a special application that would protect his bank account from unauthorized debiting. The man agreed and installed the program, which, as it turned out later, gave the swindlers access to their personal account. Moreover, he several times withdrew large sums and transferred them to the accounts indicated by the scammers.
In just a short period, the victim lost 5,500,000 rubles. The man immediately wrote a statement to law enforcement agencies when he realized that he had become a victim of deception. At the moment, a criminal case has been opened, and relevant search measures are being taken.
