Later she realized that the message about the crediting of funds on the card did not come with the Bank, and regular rooms. The same message came and Alexander Potter who sold your tablet over 11 000 UAH. However, he kept his head and immediately realized it was a Scam.

“I went up to the driver, who had been sent and asking whether he understands what’s going on. He said that a regular taxi driver. Asked him whether he will help to catch the hand of the fraudster. He says: Well, catch”, – says Alexander.
