A woman who duped several women promising them jobs overseas had been arrested and remanded, Chairman of the Foreign Employment Bureau Kingsley Ranawaka said.
Mr. Ranawaka said the suspect had charged Rs. 195,000 from about 15 women promising them employment in Iraq.
However, when the women went to Iraq they were stranded with no employment.
“The victims had met the suspect for the second time and the suspect had attempted to dupe them again,” Mr. Ranawaka told Daily Mirror. The suspect had also made arrangements for the victims to be interviewed by the Foreign Employment Agency in Moratuwa. She was arrested by the investigations unit of the Foreign Employment Bureau and produced in court.
