Scam

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

An Egyp­tian man was able to con­vince sev­eral cit­i­zens and ex­pats about his abil­ity to buy ve­hi­cles at com­pet­i­tive prices, but as soon as he re­ceived the amount and the ve­hi­cle’s own­er­ship was about to be trans­ferred, the buyer was sur­prised by the dis­ap­pear­ance of the seller. A cit­i­zen told Salmiya police he paid KD 9,000 to an Egyp­tian to buy a car, then when he asked about it, he dis­cov­ered that the sus­pect had reg­is­tered it in his own name be­fore dis­ap­pear­ing. Hawally de­tec­tives worked on the case and ar­rested the Egyp­tian. He was found to be an ex-con­vict in sim­i­lar cases.
