A con artist wanted for cheating several people using paper advertisements promising loans and financial aide has been arrested from Pandura, the Police Fraud Bureau told Daily Mirror online.

The suspect, a resident of Anuradapura had created several fake bank accounts using different identity cards and had told the unsuspecting victims to deposit loan processing fees into the company’s lawyers bank account after their request for loans were allegedly approved by a fake company.

The cash was allegedly a part of the lawyer’s fees for the necessary approval for the company to pass the loan facility of the victims. Then the suspect would withdraw the funds using an ATM card so as not to be caught by the authorities.

According to the Fraud Bureau, the police are conducting further investigations and will request a detention order to further detain the suspect .  (Daily Mirror online)

A budding finance minister in the making. The UPFA should rope him in urgently and groom him to contest an election and go to the parliament.
