GNR Dismantles Loan Scam Through Facebook – Portugal


A 59-year-old woman is accused of personal loan fraud offenses over the Internet.

The investigation had been going on since February and from what the GNR of Braga was able to find out, two women were enticed by an ad on Facebook to make several bank transfers with the aim of contracting a bank loan.

A loan contract was even sent to the victims, in order to give credibility to the scheme.

Victims were injured in about 3500 euros, never having received the agreed amount.

In addition to these, two other scams were carried out in March and July.

The GNR had already accused four men and three in the same process. More than a dozen collaborators were also identified in this criminal scheme, with monetary transfers in more than ten countries in Europe, Africa and South America, with the aim of evading the control and supervision of the authorities.
