A 46-year-old woman was arrested by the CID in connection with defrauding money by promising employment in Canada, Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekera said.

He said the woman was arrested on Monday night from a house at Nawagamuwa.

The CID recovered 350 grams of gold worth Rs. 2.6 million and Rs. 50,000 in cash from the suspect’s possession.

The Spokesman said the CID officials also recovered 72 passports, 50 bank passbooks and 50 ATM cards from the woman’s possession.

“ About 52 complaints had been received by the Police alleging the woman had been defrauding money by promising Canadian jobs,” SP Gunasekera said.

She had asked job seekers to open a saving account at a bank under their name and deposit money in it. Thereafter she would take the ATM card from them and withdraw the money, he said.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Some people are such idiots to believe you can jobs like that. But if About 52 complaints had been received by the Police alleging the woman had been defrauding money, why was she not arrested at about 10th complaint. Suspicious if she was doing deals with Police.

    Like Sheeps, they just flow a pattern. Go and pay one after the other and then go and complain one after the other. The 2 complaint s missing indicates probably that they have already flown and somewhere in transit and that may be the reason for other 50 to pay up.

    Reading the sketchy news post, I am wandering as to why the average Sri Lankan is so dumb. Open in account and give the woman the ATM card. I think these guys are good candidates to contest the next presidential elections.
