The investigations, so far, confirmed about R$ 135 thousand taken from pensions. The amount was automatically deducted from the INSS benefits. A police inquiry was launched to investigate the participation of other people.
Five victims have already been confirmed, all with a certain kinship or friendship relationship. The accounts were created in digital banks, through the internet. Photos of identity confirmation were taken.
To photograph the elderly, the excuses used were supposed re-registration and records for remembrance. The Civil Police did not confirm the participation of other people in the case, although some indications point to involvement.
An arrest warrant was authorized by the Justice, in addition to a search and seizure of cell phones or documents related to the crime. The court decision also guarantees the blocking of assets and breach of bank secrecy, in addition to the loss of public office.
