KUWAIT CITY, Sept 25: The Ministry of Interior successfully identified and apprehended a gang consisting of 4 expats from different nationalities who were involved in recruiting expatriate workers for fraudulent schemes.
Following the necessary legal procedures, the authorities apprehended these individuals, uncovering their involvement in recruiting expatriate workers to purchase bank accounts and mobile phone lines in their names in exchange for monetary compensation. Additionally, another individual was arrested on charges related to operating a fictitious company, purportedly engaged in film and series production, with the intention of deceiving unsuspecting citizens. Shockingly, more than 30 cases of fraud and financial scams, involving substantial sums of money, have been linked to this individual.
