Lebanese security forces have arrested a man accused of conducting several fraudulent operations and thefts in Lebanon.
The Internal Security Forces (ISF) said on Wednesday that the Ghazir, Keserwan division of the regional gendarmerie unit had recently received information on the whereabouts of a 43-year-old Lebanese national wanted by the judiciary.
The man, “R.D.,” is wanted for his involvement in fraud operations in various Lebanese areas, especially in the city of Byblos and its vicinity, targeting jewelry shops, car showrooms, clothing stores, and other businesses.
“The operations resulted in the theft of huge sums of money,” the ISF said, adding that on March 19th, security forces ambushed R.D. in the locality of Bouar and was able to arrest him.
The ISF also shared the man’s photo and asked those who have fallen victim to his actions and have identified him to head to the aforementioned division, in Ghazir Square, to take the necessary legal action.
Otherwise, they can call 09/920037 to report their incident.
On Tuesday, the ISF shared the photograph of another man who had been scamming girls via social media to get hold of their gold and money.
Similarly, earlier this month, security forces apprehended an Instagram user who had been running an immigration scam from Lebanon.
