She said that the locals had been called by people who had presented themselves as bank employees, even naming the person’s name, surname, personal identification code, and the name of the Internet banking user who had been called.
Due to a problem with your personal account and to fix this problem, these people have asked you to confirm your connection with the smart ID program. As a result, all the money in the person’s account was stolen.
