KUWAIT CITY, March 14: A total of 300 Egyptian families lost their belongings which they had shipped to Egypt via a company run by an Egyptian, reports Al-Rai daily.
One of the victims explained that they saw an advertisement for the transportation of clothes, electrical appliances, furniture and cars to all governorates of the Arab Republic of Egypt at a cost of 250 fils per kilogram. In addition, special discounts were offered for heavy shipments.
After seeing this advertisement, a large number of people sent their belongings via this shipping company and paid the cost of the shipping. They waited for months for their belongings, but they did not receive them.
The victim said he got in touch with other compatriot victims and they then met the Egyptian man who runs the company.
However, the latter failed to give reasons for the delay, and he eventually closed the company and disappeared. The victims lodged complaints and lawsuits but the swindler is still at large despite the arrest warrant and travel ban issued against him.
