Vetovo. We have evidence of 6 phone frauds committed by the group dismantled in Vetovo, Deputy Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev told a press briefing on the operation in the town, Focus News Agency reported. "The pre-trial proceedings were instituted at the beginning of the year around February. The period under investigation was from December 2018 to August. As of now, we have evidence of 6 specific cases of phone fraud. It is difficult to say what the actual period of operation of the crime group had been. Vetovo is one of the centres of people involved in such criminal activity," Geshev said. "There are two emblematic cases of phone fraud. One was with an older man from Sofia who was defrauded out of BGN 130,000. The second case from the beginning of the year involved an 11-year-old child from Stara Zagora, who gave a group’s money mule about BGN 44,000," he said.Open in new tab
