The Pécs District Prosecutor’s Office charged the woman from Debrecen with fraud.
According to the indictment, the woman decided in the fall of 2019 to advertise on the Internet games and electronic devices that she did not actually have. Applicants were asked to transfer the purchase price in advance. The woman opened four bank accounts specifically to receive the proceeds of the crime.
The victims transferred the purchase price or part of it, but the accused did not send them the products, giving them various excuses. In several cases, she sent a self-edited shipping receipt to prove that she had shipped the package. After a while, the victims were no longer able to reach the woman by phone or message, so many filed a complaint.
The perpetrator began the fraud in November 2019 and continued even after she was questioned as a suspect in April 2020. The series of fraud came to an end when the woman was detained by the Pécs police in July 2020 and the Pécs District Court ordered her arrest at the request of the Pécs District Prosecutor’s Office.
The woman stole from 197 people living in different parts of the country, causing nearly HUF 3,000,000 in damage.
The most severe of the defendant’s sentences is imprisonment for up to three years.
