Law enforcement agencies detained a 37-year-old resident of the capital of Khakassia. The man is accused of collecting money from fellow countrymen to buy mining equipment, and then disappeared.
It all began with the fact that a 24-year-old citizen turned to the police of Abakan. He said that he gave a friend 260,000 rubles to buy mining equipment, but never received the device. A little later, another resident of Abakan came to the police, who lost 330,000, which he handed over to a certain countryman. Applications were submitted by residents of the village of Zelenoye and the village of Kalinino, who lost 290,000 rubles and 580,000 rubles, respectively. The total damage amounted to more than 1.4 million rubles.
Law enforcement agencies in each case opened a case under part 3 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – fraud on a large scale. It turned out that in all cases the same resident of Khakassia lit up. The suspect is a convicted 37-year-old Abakan man. Police say he tried to escape to another region but was detained. The man is now in custody. Most of the stolen funds are considered to be spent.
Earlier it was reported that fraudsters deceived a crypto investor from the Altai Territory for 1.6 million rubles.
