Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: bank fraudster tricks woman: money saved

Rostock (dpa/mv) - A 33-year-old from Rostock became the victim of a computer bank fraud - but just got her money back. As a police spokeswoman said on Thursday, a caller to the woman had credibly pretended that "suspicious transactions" had been detected in her account. He is an employee of your bank, has to check this more closely and therefore needs access to your computer. The woman granted this to the caller. He then deducted a total of around 19,000 euros in several tranches.

The woman quickly found the whole thing suspicious. She informed the bank and the police and they were able to book the money back just in time. The police investigation into the case was still ongoing. The police advise never giving strangers access to your own computer or passing on passwords and online banking login data.
