They use the Georgian phone code 995 so that subscribers confuse it with the Russian 975.

Honored Lawyer of Russia Ivan Solovyov told about this in an interview with RT. He said that in almost all these cases, the attacker appears to the potential victim as an employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. He asks leading questions and points out that he represents a subdivision of the Moscow region.

"He cannot explain anything about the dislocation of the unit and the chief, however, he claims that an inspection is being carried out in your regard under Article 327 of the Criminal Code of Russia. They say that some people accuse you of forging a power of attorney and stealing money from someone else's account", - the expert said.

Then the victim is asked to check whether the stolen money has not come to her bank accounts, confidential data is tricked out and funds are stolen. As the lawyer noted, "there are new motives in the old scheme".

However, it must be remembered that the security forces do not solve such issues over the phone. If necessary, real police officers would have called a person to the department, having drawn up an appropriate protocol.

On March 13, Kostroma police officers presented gratitude to an 80-year-old local resident who helped catch a telephone fraudster. The vigilant pensioner not only did not succumb to the tricks of scammers, but also helped to return the money of two other victims of fraudsters.
