Francesco Aiello, the first witness heard at the trial resulting from the inquiry "", which hypothesizes a series of scams of all kinds through the simulation of online purchases, tells the deception of which he would have been a victim. "I called the number – he continues answering to the prosecutor Antonella Pandolfi – and a man answered me, he told me that to stop the purchase I had to make a down payment and he sent me the details of a Postepay card headed to Samanta Cicatello. I paid 50 euros, after a few days I called him and he gave me an appointment at the Villaggio Mosè. There was no one at the appointment and he never answered the phone again, I realized that it had been a scam and I lodged a complaint ”.
