Time and again, Viennese citizens are victims of rip-offs. The recent case cost the victim almost 3,000 euros.
Here are the details:
The Viennese citizen Jasvir S. locked himself out of his apartment and contacted a locksmith. This person netted 1,400 euros and cashed twice on one
Jasvir S. (40) from Vienna-Brigittenau recently had double bad luck: At first, his apartment door slammed shut. “A gust of wind has unfortunately made it
and gone was the key, “he says.
Then, at the very end of his nerves, he contacted a locksmith number he found on Google’s search engine. Immediately craftsmen came and opened
the door. After that, they put a hefty bill. The men demanded once for unlocking the horrendous amount of 1,400 euros.
Jasvir was under pressure to pay with his debit card. The scammers used their mobile card device and then specify that the debit card
did not work.
Under enormous pressure, Jasvir pulled his second credit card. The amount of 1,400 euros was charged twice – a total of 2,800 euros.
Only after the debit of a bank account, the citizen found that he had been cheated.
But the alleged scammers are gone, desperate calls end in a call center.
