The Royal Oman Police (ROP) has arrested a person accused of defrauding 56 girls by impersonating as the head of a recruitment department of an airline.
In a statement, ROP said, ‘The girls were promised jobs through a fake account in one of the social media platforms. The victims were blackmailed after they shared their profiles and personal photos.’
ROP said legal action has been taken against him and has called on everyone to be cautious against dealing with unknown persons and fake social media accounts.
It urged citizens to apply for jobs only through the official accounts of institutions and companies and stay away from fraudsters.
