There is this new type of mafia that is currently making its way into the world. Well, it is not new, but is clearly getting bigger and bigger.
The Phone Mafia : To scam people through the phone.
The Phone Mafia are an organised crime group that uses random people to help them take money from even more random people , usually old and easilly
targeted, with various scams.
The appeal to the system is that they almost never get cought because they are doing it through a phone and because the middle man does not know who
is he employed by and who are their targets.
The entire scam happens in less than a hour.
The scammer calls a random number, then like the actor they are, they pretend to be someone : A relative, the police, a media, law enforcements or a
company. They make the people drop money at random locations. The money are picked by the middle man, then dropped to yet another random location.
The country i am from : Bulgaria, is currently a Hotspot for the Bulgarian Phone Mafia. From the start of the year there are over 10000 crimes
commited and is slowly getting into our neighbours. Most of the times the criminals litteraly go in another country then from there they scam the
people back in Bulgaria.
Those scams are slowly spreading across Europa and the USA. People see how sucessfulle they are and just keep going and going.
A new site that explains it better than me
Be safe and look out from the phone scammers.
