Phone card scammers reappear

Date: 11/7/2007 3:07:42 PM

Santiago de los Caballeros. Phone card scammers have once more been active in the city. Their modus operandi is to phone a person and tell them that a family member has been in a car accident and that they need phone cards to get the information about the patient’s condition. Dozens of people have been taken in by this confidence trick in the last couple of weeks.

The scammers appeared to target employees and officials at the Metropolitan Transport Office (OMSA), as well as other companies and private homes.  

One person, who did not disclose his identity, spent RD$7,000 after being told that a close relative had been seriously injured in a road accident.

The fraud victim said he had received a call from a person saying that his mother had been seriously injured in an accident in San Pedro de Macorís.

“This is a big theft that the police authorities and the telecommunications companies need to put a stop to it so that it doesn’t go on happening”, said the victim.
