A resident of the Amur region said that he became a victim of scammers when buying equipment for the extraction of cryptocurrencies, the Ministry of Internal Affairs said.
According to the man, he found an advertisement for the sale of mining equipment for 53,000 rubles on the Internet. He transferred funds to the seller and received the package, but instead of a device for mining cryptocurrency, he found an old car battery in it.
Law enforcement officers are checking, the issue of initiating a criminal case for fraud is being resolved.
Recall that a resident of Moscow lost 6.7 million rubles for the purchase of a “laptop for bitcoin mining”.
