Man arrested for pretending to be doctor, operating scam

Paphos police on Tuesday arrested a man suspected of impersonating a doctor and obtaining money under false pretenses.

The 34-year-old is suspected of being connected with at least two cases where unsuspecting members of the public were duped into handing over cash, supposedly to pay for urgent surgery for loved ones.

Cyprus police had received complaints that unknown people were phoning potential victims claiming that their son or daughter had been in a traffic collision and cash was needed to pay for surgery.
