In Simferopol, a fraudster was exposed who did not pay one hundred thousand rubles for goods purchased online
In Simferopol, police identified a suspect in fraud: by deception, a woman took possession of goods ordered through a marketplace worth more than 100 thousand rubles.
During the operational search activities, criminal investigation officers identified the suspect. She turned out to be a 31-year-old resident of Simferopol with no previous convictions. It turned out that the woman was using a fictitious electronic wallet account that she had previously created on the Internet. When ordering home delivery of goods, she showed the arriving courier the unprocessed receipt, assuring him that there were some problems with the network and the payment would definitely go through. Thus, the attacker fraudulently purchased goods worth more than 100 thousand rubles— reported the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Crimea.
The investigation department of OP No. 1 “Zheleznodorozhny” of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for the city of Simferopol opened a criminal case on the grounds of a crime under Part 1 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (fraud). The sanction of the article provides for a maximum penalty of imprisonment for up to two years. The attacker was given a preventive measure in the form of a recognizance not to leave the place. The suspect’s involvement in committing similar acts of fraud on the territory of the Republic of Crimea is established.
