TRNC police issues warning against fraudsters

The TRNC General Directorate of Police has issued a warning to citizens to disregard calls from fraudsters who call them to demand for their personal information.

The Police General Directorate, in a warning published on its social media account on Tuesday, said that 

fraudsters now call the phone numbers (which they obtained from various databases in recent days) of bank customers, especially the retired and elderly people. These fraudsters introduced themselves as a policeman, soldier, prosecutor or bank officer and asked these people to withdraw their money from the banks and transfer it to the account numbers they specified, using scenarios such as "their identity information and bank accounts were seized by criminal organizations, money laundering was attempted from their accounts, their money was not safe".

“Never give your identity information, bank account information or passwords to people who introduce themselves as police, prosecutor or an officer of the bank where you have your account. Don't let them keep you busy on the phone. Do not follow their instructions. Hang up and immediately call 155 Police Hotline or the nearest police station. Do not send your money to accounts you have been told. If you have sent it, immediately call the police station and inform the police about the incident without delay.”

In the warning, it was emphasized that no police, prosecutor or bank officer would ask the citizen to withdraw his money, deposit it to another account, make money order or EFT.
