Police on Wednesday warned the public against disclosing their bank data after a 23-year-old was allegedly scammed out of €4,000 in Limassol.

The young woman received a phone call from an unknown person on Tuesday, who told her he was speaking on behalf of a bank and asked for her credit card details.

The complainant, convinced she was speaking with a bank employee, followed his instructions and confirmed an unspecified number of transactions through the bank’s online application.

Later that day, the 23-year-old realised it was a scam and reported the case to the police.
