Stralsund (dpa / mv) - Two suspected tricksters who are said to have pretended to be police officers have to answer to the Stralsund district court. The men from Rostock are accused of commercial gang and computer fraud in 52 cases, as the Stralsund district court announced on Monday. The duo was arrested in June and is in custody. The trial is scheduled to begin this Tuesday, with a verdict expected in early December.
In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, authorities repeatedly warn seniors in particular of similar scams. In 2021, tricksters stole around three million euros in different ways.
