26/08/2022 – A money changer was arrested after applying scams and causing damage of approximately R$ 500,000 to the victims. According to the police, he owns an exchange house in a neighborhood in the South Zone and, to attract victims, he offered lower rates for transactions with foreign currencies. After the victim deposited the money, the money changer did not transfer the amounts to complete the purchase of the currency.

Our analysis:

Non-certified, obscure businesses found on the internet are not a secure way for this type of transaction. The ideal when buying and selling foreign currency is to look for duly authorized institutions, such as banks or exchange houses, especially those that you can easily find good references on review webpages, such as “Reclame Aqui”. When exchanging money, travel cards are excellent options. To obtain banknotes, it is important to look for reputable exchange houses inside malls and buildings with private security. Never exchange large amounts at once, prefer to separate the amount into several parts and complete the transaction at different moments. It is also a good strategy to exchange the entire amount at different places, so you reduce the chances of being target by criminals that may have a corrupt exchange house employee as an informant.

So far, the police already know that two men were involved in the attempted robbery. Nobody was arrested and the guard was injured.

Our analysis:

The number of robberies in stores inside shopping centers has grown significantly in the country. Jewelry stores, electronics and operations that work with high value products are the most sought after by criminals. If you are surprised by any situation of this type, it is important to remain calm to act in order to minimize the risks. If possible try to protect yourself in a safe place. Never react, because the aggressor will certainly be accompanied, and the situation can quickly get complicated and always follow the orders of criminals.
