MAHMOODRAQI (Pajhwok): A group of four fraudsters involved in duping people into illegal payments has been busted in central Kapisa province, police said on Tuesday.

Abdul Fatah Fayez, Kapisa police spokesman, said the con men posed as customer service officials of telecom companies and phoned individuals to cheat them out of money.

Fayez said: “The detainees using digital telephone called individuals to tell them they have won gold sets or cars. They asked people for money to be able to open codes.”

The cheaters asked a person from Bamyan province to come to Kapisa to collect his prize, Fayez rebealed.

The tricksters were arrested red-handed while trying to collect 1,000 afs from the Bamyan resident in the Baba Ali area of Mahmood Raqi, the spokesman added.

Cases against the conmen, arrested on the basis of public complaints, have been referred to judicial organs. The detainees are residents of neighbouring Parwan province.
