An alcohol importer in Limassol lost €35,391 after falling victim to an internet scam, police said on Wednesday.

According to the police report, the 37-year-old owner of the company made a complaint with Limassol CID in February regarding an order she had made through her company.

The woman had reportedly placed an order for a large shipment of a brand of whiskey from a company based abroad, sending her payment to a German bank in three instalments.

After not receiving her order for a long time, she contacted the purported suppliers.

She realised she had been scammed when she was asked for more money, and reported it to Limassol CID.

Investigations on the case are still ongoing, police said.
