A Larnaca company was tricked into paying € 11,500 via the internet on Tuesday. The Larnaca company reported to police that they sent the money to a company abroad.
An email received by the Cyprus-based company said that their vendor had a new bank account, into which they wanted to receive the outstanding amount.
The supposed vendor gave them the account details in the email.
But it turned out that the email was a fraud, and the account did not belong to the overseas company.
Larnaca CID are investigating the case.
