Organised Crime Scammers Arrested in Europol Raid.

On 24th and 25th March 2022, Europol carried out a raid on three call centres in Latvia and Lithuania arresting 108 people involved in selling fake bitcoin, foreign currencies and commodities. The call centres were all operated by the same Organised Crime Gang.  Their scams were earning them an estimated 3m Euro per month.

This is still a drop in the ocean because there are many large-scale organised crime call centres operating in Eastern European countries, the Baltics, Dubai, India, Hong Kong and China. The scammers were communicating with their intended victims in English, Russian, Polish and Hindi.

You can read the full report on this LINK TO EUROPOL WEBSITE.  It is worth visiting the Europol site just to watch the video of the raid.  It’s nice to see scammers hiding under desks with guns pointed at them.
