Amsterdam – Can you perhaps transfer me € 1.40 because I don’t have enough credit for a train ticket? The helpful passerby who accepted this request and searched a QR code for a payment request lost hundreds of euros. And he’s not alone. Two QR code fraudsters have to be detained for four and five months.
