Three men on the 20, 21, and 21 years has been arrested in a case of widespread and gross fraud and computer fraud. This was stated by the Copenhagen Police to Ekstra Bladet.

Police suspect the three to be bigots in a criminal network that specializes in telephone to contact elderly people and pretend to be from the tax administration. They have since extorted the older people's passwords, NemID and other personal information and has in this way been able to transfer significant amounts from the forurettedes bank accounts.

The two 21-year-old was on Wednesday produced in the grundlovsforhør, where they were remanded in custody in the preliminary four weeks. Of the charges, it appears that the two in the period between 7. november 2019 and 3. February 2020, from an address in Copenhagen in five cases have contacted the elderly people. In total, five after the police view, been cheated 526.300 crowns, according to the charges.

however, There is a part that suggest that even more have been scammed.

- The relation, that are in charge are the ones we have been able to identify so far. But the complex is bigger. We count with several conditions, says the superintendent of the department for economic crime at the Copenhagen Police, Ove Randrup, to Ekstra Bladet.

The initial investigation is carried out by the Nationwide Center for it-related economic crime (LCIK) and is then transmitted to and investigated by Copenhagen Police.

the Police have got reviews from all over the country, informs Ove Randrup.

The two 21-year-old was made Wednesday, and Thursday at 10 o'clock proceeded to the police an arrest of the 20-year-old, that shall be produced in grundlovsforhør on Friday with the requirement of pre-trial detention.

Ove Randrup tells that it is the police view that the three in the association have contacted the elderly people over the phone. They have released themselves to be from the tax administration, and so they have in different ways managed to trick the elderly to hand over personal information, NemID and password.

- So they have been able to go directly into the online banking service and working while they talk. It is typically bedsteforældretyper, they have contacted. It is unsympathetic ad pomerania to, the way they take advantage of older people's confidence and goodness at, say, Ove Randrup.

the Police can not rule out further arrests in the case. There is evidence to suggest that the perpetrators in some cases have borrowed a bank account from very young people to transfer money to, then they later transferred the money on. In the case, the risk of young people being charged with money laundering and receiving stolen goods.

- We have an invitation to the young people that they do not make their account available for anyone. In cases where there has been a transfer, they make themselves guilty of serious crime, says Ove Randrup and Extra Magazine.

Randrup, in fact, can not comment on the details of the case, in fact, because the judge chose to close the doors during the grundlovsforhøret Wednesday. It happened out of consideration for the investigation, and because there may be medgerningsmænd on the loose.
