Reported – Carinthia lost over $100,000 to crypto scammers

Date:

Two men from the St. Veit an der Glan neighborhood reported Tuesday that they had lost a lot of money to suspected scammers. A 64-year-old stated that more than 100,000 euros had gone missing through alleged crypto deals. And a 37-year-old man testified that several tens of thousands of euros were debited from his account on Tuesday evening, police said.

As the 64-year-old pointed out, he was persuaded to invest in cryptocurrencies over the phone in May of this year. He repeatedly made transfers totaling more than 100,000 euros to various internet accounts. When the man finally wanted to access the money he had invested, he found that all the accounts were empty.

It was still completely unclear how the money from the account of the 37-year-old disappeared. Several transfers have been made from his bank account to various foreign accounts without his knowledge. How the perpetrators gained access to it is still under investigation.
