  • [01] Two arrests in e-commerce extortion scam

    Two arrests have been made in a hunt to find the perpetrators of an internet scam who elicited confidential details of e-commerce buyers' bank accounts to withdraw the cash for themselves.

    Attica police said on Saturday that the two are believed to have sent messages to e-commerce users using pretexts to convince the recipients they were replying to official requests for information, including pin codes, from their banks.

    Employing the information, the perpetrators then illegally transferred money into their own accounts.

    The arrests followed a spate of complaints to Attica police from banks and their customers.

    Police computer exerts followed up the cases, tracking the two detainees down to Orestiada through their internet movements.

    [02] Gov't tenders improvements to country hospital

    The government is to tender an improvement project at the end of November for the regional Panarkadiko hospital in Tripoli, Health Minister Nikitas Kaklamanis said on Saturday.

    The deadline for the tender, which includes construction of auxilliary buildings, is at the end of January 2006 with a project completion date anticipated at the end of 2007, Kaklamanis told a news conference during a visit to Tripoli.

    Works, which were entered under the European Union's Third Community Support Framework package of funds early this month, are budgeted at about 12.5 million euros.

    Ten million euros of the total is to be spent on infrastructure and 2.5 million euros on equipment, the minister added.
