A Grodno resident decided to make money online and lost $ 16.6 thousand, BelTA learned from the press service of the Internal Affairs Directorate of the Grodno Regional Executive Committee.

A man, born in 1975, suffered from the actions of intruders. In November 2018, a representative of one of the brokerage companies contacted him and offered to make money on trading on world exchanges with metals, oil, gold, stocks. “The unknown person explained that the more the contribution is, the more substantial the profit will be. The man transferred $ 16.6 thousand to the brokerage company,” the police said. Hrodna has been tracking his savings for some time. And when the amount seemed sufficient to him, he decided to withdraw the money. But the attempt was unsuccessful. He could not contact brokers. Then the man turned to the police.

The criminal case was initiated under Part 4 of Art. 209 of the Criminal Code (fraud). The necessary operational and investigative activities are being carried out.
