The imagination of fraudsters who send malicious emails has no end. They have started sending messages calling on the victims to report to the Athens Police Department.
A new activity has appeared in the field of fraudulent emails where fraudsters pretend to be the Greek Police Directorate of Athens and call their victims to appear at the police headquarters for their case, otherwise they risk imprisonment.
Of course, in order for the victims to see details and where exactly they need to be presented, they should open the file attached to the email, and that is the lens. The attached file contains malware.
See below relevant announcement of the Police:
