Victims were terrified women who ended up transferring money to the author
Motoboy, 27 years old, accused of extorting women in the vicinity of Shopping Campo Grande, with the scam of the false accident, was arrested by Derf (Specialized Police Station for Repression of Robbery and Theft). He demanded from Pix victims from R$ 100 to R$ 400.
According to Derf, the embezzler would have made at least four victims between May and October of this year. The victims were women who were alone in their vehicles at night.
Still according to the police, the motorbike delivery driver approached the drivers suddenly, in traffic. He said he had been in an accident caused by the victims and made threats. He was always on a green Honda/Titan motorcycle and carried a red thermal backpack.
The man began to demand, in an aggressive and intimidating way, compensation for alleged material damage. He asked for payment through Pix, to fix the motorcycle rear view. “We are not leaving here until you transfer the amount”, he would have said to one of the victims.
Frightened, the victims ended up transferring amounts between R$ 100.00 to R$ 400.00 to the author. He was identified and when questioned he confessed to the crimes and alleged financial difficulties. The motoboy was indicted for extortion and the police are looking for other victims of the scam.
