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