Scammers exploit Kalogeropoulos-Mavromichalis murders to target Cypriots

Fraudsters to orchestrate an electronic fraud scheme


In a disturbing turn of events, fraudsters have seized the opportunity presented by the Kalogeropoulos and Mavromichalis murders to orchestrate an electronic fraud scheme. The primary objective: intercepting sensitive data from unsuspecting citizens.

Internet security expert Dinos Pastou sounded the alarm through a post highlighting a perilous message circulating among Cypriots. This message, seemingly innocuous, carries a dangerous payload aimed at compromising Viber histories and conversations.

The deceptive nature of the message is outlined by Pastou, who warns of the severity of the threat. "Its wording says it all," he cautions, urging individuals to exercise caution and be wary of unsolicited messages.

Within the fraudulent communication, a chilling account is provided by an anonymous source, claiming to have captured individuals wearing masks and brandishing machine guns on surveillance cameras in their backyard. The message implores recipients to view an article for more details, hinting that someone close to them might recognize these mysterious figures.

As the community grapples with the aftermath of recent crimes, this electronic fraud adds a new layer of concern. Pastou's expertise underscores the urgency for heightened cybersecurity measures among Cypriots, emphasizing the need for vigilance in the face of evolving cyber threats.

In conclusion, citizens are advised to stay informed, exercise caution when receiving unsolicited messages, and report any suspicious activity promptly. The intersection of electronic fraud with real-world incidents necessitates a collective effort to safeguard privacy and security in the digital age.
