Heraklion, Nomos Irakleiou, Greece
| 419-type scam with Greek government / public sector as the target |
These people really try every trick to scam the Greek government / public sector obviously betting on the apparently world renowned stupidity of Greek politicians (luckily they haven\'t succeeded yet) and they even tried to scam the state of Alabama in the US using the same trick (loan, with 0.5% interest and 50 years repayment, using their IBOEs that they call \"bonds\" supposedly being an oblication of the US treasury and of course they ask for the first installment in advance, or in Greece case that their IBOEs be exchanged with public sector bonds, or they even tried to give stocks of an inexistent Bank (Bank d\' orient) to greek IRS as tax and they requested the difference to be returned to them in cash (!!).
Unfortunately, although the fraud has been repeatedly exposed and reported to the FBI
(one of the fraudsters is a US citizen), neither the FBI nor the greek authorities
have responded in any way, allowing innocent people to be brainwashed and become
essentially members of this ridiculous \"cult\".
Greek law is also vague and (maybe intentionally) lenient towards attempted fraud
and false news spreading, even if the amounts are in the billions, so these people
were acquitted (!) by Greek courts for \"false news spreading\" because Greek law
says they would only be found guilty if widespread panic had resulted from their
false news and nobody cared to try to prove this.
