The Greek Red Cross has issued an emergency statement to inform the public of scams, with efforts underway to exploit the situation regarding aid to the fire-stricken, with announcements calling on donors to deposit money into bogus accounts.
The Greek Red Cross stated that, “there is one and only one bank account that has been opened by the Greek Red Cross for people stricken by wildfires, and it is the following:
Eurobank Ergasias S.A.
Name of bank and branch number
Eurobank Ergasias S.A. (0240)
Korai 7 and Panepistimiou 37, 10564, Athens
The Greek Red Cross announcement underlines that, “Whichever other bank account is linked with the Greek Red Cross bank account, either directly or indirectly, is false, and in all cases legal action will be taken.”
