Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice in the Cre­tan port city of Ha­nia yesterday de­tained a 37-year-old woman who is al­leged to have posed as an em­ployee of the Fi­nance Min­istry to trick peo­ple into giv­ing her money for her to os­ten­si­bly set­tle their fi­nan­cial obli­ga­tions to the state. The woman is also al­leged to have used the tax reg­is­tra­tion num­bers of com­pa­nies to em­bez­zle money from var­i­ous firms and in­di­vid­u­als, sources said. In­ves­ti­ga­tors traced a to­tal of 12 cases that have been linked to the sus­pect. A raid on her home turned up var­i­ous forged doc­u­ments.
