Four foreigners arrested for financial frauds

Three Nigerian nationals and one Uganda man have been arrested for allegedly engaging in financial fraud through credit cards during an operation carried out by the Special Tasks Force in Mount Lavinia yesterday.

STF officers had arrested the group on a tip off by the National Intelligence Unit.

The arrested foreigners have made telephone calls to several people stating that they had won a gift price and to obtain the gift price a prior payment must be done. The suspects had misled several individuals and had made them deposit money into different bank accounts.

Further investigations have revealed that the four foreign nationals had arrived in Sri Lanka in 2017 and had committed a financial fraud and were released on bail.

The suspects have been handed over to the CID.
