Conmen arrested for duping citizen
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.
