The police requested camera images and the suspect was immediately recognized when he attempted to make a transaction in the supermarket. The police were called in by the supermarket employee and, in consultation with the public prosecutor, the suspect was arrested for the thefts and has now been brought before the examining magistrate.

What can you do to limit damage from financial exploitation?

To prevent large amounts from being withdrawn from your bank or giro account, it is wise to transfer money that is not immediately needed from your current account to a savings account. If you also ensure through your bank that you are not unnecessarily (much) overdrawn on your current account, you also prevent others from withdrawing large amounts from your account.
