    WARSAW, February 27 (RIA Novosti) - Poland’s Internal Security Agency said on Wednesday it had completed an investigation against a group suspected of luring money from Internet users and transferring a part of its profit to accounts in Russia.

    The agency said a group of 12 people, based in the city of Radom in central Poland, used the phishing technique to lure money from unsuspecting users.

    “The money they received during such activities has been transferred to recipients, including in Russia, via a chain of bank accounts,” the Internal Security Agency said in a statement.

    The group made about 800 transfers, totaling at least $230,000.

    The suspects, whose names were not disclosed, admitted their guilt in full.
