KUWAIT: Kuwait City police arrested a man before he could leave the country with money he conned out of tourists through various scams. The suspect reportedly made KD 16,000 after giving at least seven families travel tickets and hotel reservations through a travel agency he worked at. His crime was discovered only when one of his clients called the agency to cancel his trip and was informed that his reservations were not registered in the agencies’ records and that the money he paid was never deposited. When the Egyptian man was nowhere to be found, both the client and the agency manager went to Sharq police station and filed a case. The man was arrested on Tuesday and he admitted to pocketing the cash through scams and said that he had already sent the money to his home country. He remains in custody pending legal procedures.
