A ‘good’ investment
Arnold comes across an ad on the internet offering a great deal on buying cryptocurrency. He likes the ad so he clicks on it. He decides to set up a cryptocurrency investment account with the company and transfers CZK 300 into it. A couple of days later, he gets a call from someone who introduces himself as a representative of the company. Let’s call him a salesperson. This salesperson tells Arnold that he would like to show him how his new investment account works. He convinces Arnold to install remote access software which he says will make it easier for him to use his account. Arnold installs the software and enables the remote access. The salesperson can now access his computer and do whatever he wants. Perhaps he will convince Arnold to log in to his online banking, where the salesperson could then make a payment himself. Then all he needs to do is to talk Arnold into providing him with the confirmation SMS to authorise the transaction or to convince Arnold to confirm the transaction himself. If Arnold were to do this, he can say goodbye to his money.
