A suspect who had defrauded more than 8 lakhs from six individuals promising them mechanic jobs at the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) had been taken into custody by the police. The suspect had won the trust of the victims by appearing to be an employee of the CPC.   

The unemployed fraudster had collected up to hundred and seventy thousand rupees from each individual promising them employment. He had deceived these job seekers stating that he was an acquaintance of a son of a high ranking official of the CPC and that he would get them employment.

The Fraud Investigations Bureau is conducting further investigations. (Daily Mirror online)

    Yesterday certainly wasn't the day for fraudsters, from Sakvithi to many others were nabbed on the same day.
