Frankfurt / Wiesbaden - According to investigators, con artists had committed such crimes nationwide from mid-September to early October.

For example, last week an 80-year-old woman in Schmitten im Taunus received a call from a crying woman who pretended to be her daughter.

She said she had a traffic accident in which a girl was killed.

In order not to have to go into custody, she should now pay an amount of 25,000 euros.

When the 86-year-old husband of the person called went to hand over the money, the wife had doubts and alerted the police.

This arrested a 31-year-old suspect at the handover location.
