During a telephone conversation, the senior woman informed her how much and what kind of valuables she had at home, and then, instructed by a fake policeman, she packed nearly PLN 130,000, several thousand euros and jewelry in the form of gold wedding rings and rings into a shopping bag.

The alleged policeman also added that the daughter had contacted her patron and a young applicant would come to her for the money. The 87-year-old, thinking that she was helping her daughter, handed a parcel with money and jewelry to a complete stranger in front of her house.

– The next morning, the senior received a phone call from her real daughter and realized that there was no accident and that she had been deceived – said Rekowska.
