    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Watch out! Unscrupulous people are trying to run scams in the name of the National Insurance Institute (INS).

    According to the insurer, the scam is to get people’s information for an alleged “financial offer” which provides loans on highly concessional terms.

    The “hook” for the victim to call the INS telephone number and give all their possible information such as full name, occupation, date of birth, salary details, address, and scanned copies of their identity card. Finally, they’re instructed to confirm their profile to receive a text confirmation.

    Once the application is submitted and analyzed within the hour, they receive a message to call back since the scammers already have all the credit information. Thus the victim calls, receives the news that her loan was approved but on the condition that they must submit ¢595,000 for the purchase of an “insurance policy INS”.

    If you have received a call like this scam and wish to report it, call 2287-6000, extension 2815 or 2685 for the INS Research Department.
