Con­men ar­rested for dup­ing ci­ti­zen

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

The ROP has ar­rested two for­eign­ers for de­fraud­ing a ci­ti­zen to the tune of more than RO3,000.

An of­fi­cial from the Bausher Po­lice Sta­tion said that the duo duped a ci­ti­zen by say­ing that they had some mag­i­cal so­lu­tion and pow­der to dou­ble any amount of money.

The vic­tim handed more than RO3,000 to the fraud­sters for the said pur­pose. “When the vic­tim called one of the ac­cused, he gave one ex­cuse or the other for the de­lay in hand­ing over the in­creased amount.”

The ROP has called on cit­i­zens and res­i­dents to be care­ful of fall­ing prey to such frauds. “We re­quest peo­ple not to deal with such peo­ple who prom­ise to dou­ble your money through some magic. We ask peo­ple to im­me­di­ately alert us about frauds.
