KUWAIT CITY, March 27: The concerned authorities have shut down a money exchange office for cheating expatriates and bedoun, reports Al-Anba daily. The daily quoting police said this came after the security authorities received several complaints that the money they sent to their family and friends was not delivered.
Sources disclosed the exchange had failed to deliver currency worth KD 200,000. The source added the manager of the office is serving time at the Central Prison since Feb 24, 2018.
One of the Egyptian victims said the office received KD 14,000 from him but no transfer had taken effect. When he checked with the office he was given a cheque but there was no money to cover the amount.
A bedoun said he took a bank loan of KD 8,000 for the university fees and educational expenses of his son in Egypt, but the money has not been delivered. The victims have appealed to the concerned authorities to find a way to help them get their money back.
