“Hello, your son is in the hospital.” The case of the fraudsters was transferred to the court News of Kharkiv and Ukraine

The Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor’s Office has approved and sent to the court an indictment against two men for fraud committed as part of an organized group (part 4 of Article 190 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

According to the investigation, a group of people, acting as part of an organized group, defrauded pensioners since November 2021. Criminals called elderly people and, pretending to be their relatives, reported that they were in the hospital and urgently needed money for an operation. Fraudsters indicated that the money should be given to a “doctor” who would come to the victim’s home.

A 40-year-old man met the pensioners directly and took the money. His 37-year-old partner was nearby and monitored the external situation.

On February 19, 2022, after receiving funds from another victim, both men were detained.

The involvement of the accused in six episodes of crimes was established.
