Police in the city of Alexandroupoli, northern Greece, were trying to identify an individual who swindled three local businessmen by involving them in a supposed donation to the Hellenic Army.

The suspect contacted the three businessmen, posing as a local doctor, asking them to take part in a donation of military supplies to the army.

He apparently told the businessmen in separate phone calls that he had paid for the purchase of the supplies, but had mistakenly deposited a larger sum when he made the online transaction, and asked them if they could cover the loss he incurred. 

This way he extracted a total of 20,920 euros from the three victims.
