The sweet tooth swindler was exposed by the employees of the Moscow confectionery. The man managed to deceive cake sellers for almost 20 thousand rubles using fake online transfers.
As it became known to “MK”, one of the customers of the confectionery decided to enjoy cakes for free using the online transfer system. The man ordered a dessert, sent the employees a proof of “payment” – a screen of the transfer from a mobile bank and received the delivery. But the man just faked the screenshot of the payment – modern technologies are not capable of that. When he realized that the scheme had worked, the crook began to order cakes more often and even became a regular customer. The confectionery has a lot of orders, so no one followed the payments – the employees noted in the notebook only the confirmation of the payment in the form of screenshots. Meanwhile, the swindler’s appetite grew, he became impudent with each order: if the swindler started with a kilogram cake, he soon began to order several times more. And once, after the “payment”, he asked for a refund, because he decided to cancel part of the order. It was then that they figured out him: they opened a mobile bank, but did not see any new receipts. When they rummaged through the reports, comparing payments, it became clear: the attacker had deceived the confectioners at least 10 times.
Fortunately, when the sweet tooth swindler became completely insolent and placed an order for 20 thousand rubles, the employees already knew about him. But the cake eater himself had not yet suspected that his scheme had been revealed.
– He ordered several “Napoleons” for 5 kg totaling more than 20,000 rubles and promised to pick them up from our coffee shop and confectionery. He sent a “courier” there and said that when the courier arrives, he will pay for the order right away – we do accept payment after delivery. We were already 90% sure that this was the same “cunning client”, so we didn’t even bother to cook the cakes. And when the courier arrived and the client asked to throw off the details for payment, we threw off our card number, and the initials and surname did not correspond to this card, ” said Tatyana Varlamova, the owner of the confectionery. – So, the client did not even bother to check the authenticity of the surname and patronymic in the mobile bank for this card and simply drew these fake full names in the payment screen. And when we told him about it, he immediately disappeared. We did not talk to the police, because they didn’t want to mess with him. Now we check all screens about payment, but there were no more such situations.
