Hunt launched for man fleecing people, providing ‘1-day’ maids

KUWAIT CITY, March 9: An unknown individual has been placing online advertisements stating that his domestic labor office can provide housemaids at a cost of KD 100-KD 150 each. However, after he sends housemaids to the people who pay, those housemaids escape the very next day.

According to security sources, a Kuwaiti woman contacted the man through one of his advertisements and arranged for a housemaid at a cost of KD 170 per month. She paid KD 100 when the requested housemaid arrived and assured to pay the rest of the sum at the end of the month.

However, the housemaid escaped the next day. When she called the office to report the incident, she discovered she was cheated. She immediately rushed to the police station where a case was registered. Officers from the General Department of Criminal Evidences have launched extensive investigations to find this man and the runaway maid.

Docus forged: Personnel from the Criminal Investigations Department have arrested a Kuwaiti employee of the Interior Ministry for forging salary certificates of citizens working in the public sector to help them get loans from companies, reports Al- Anba daily. In the details, a security source according to police the employee was charging between KD 300 and KD 500 to forge one certificate. Acting on information, and after taking legal procedures, police raided the home of the suspect and seized from him government seals, a scanner and forged certificates. In another, unrelated incident, the Al-Rai daily said, police have arrested two policemen for colluding with a bedoun (who had been arrested earlier) for committing a similar fraud. After the bedoun was arrested, he reportedly provided information about the two policemen who paid him KD 2,500 each for the forged certificates to help them apply for loans.

Farm broken into: Police are looking for three people for breaking into a livestock pen and stealing 17 heads of cattle, reports Al-Anba daily. According to security sources, the theft was discovered when the Kuwaiti called the Operations Room of the Interior Ministry and said he called his guard but he does not answer. He also said he suspects the guard may be unconscious because he was burning coal to keep him warm and may have inhaled toxic fumes. When police rushed to the livestock pen they found the guard tied up.
