Benghazi, 25 June 2015.
Three Indian nurses cheated in a money-transfer scam are have got their back thanks to prompt . . .[restrict]action by the security department at Benghazi Medical Centre.
The nurses had given LD 7,000 to an unidentified individual who promised that the money would be transferred to India within 33 days. The sum never arrived. When the nurses tried to contact the man, his phone was always turned off.
Ibrahim Saiti, head of security at BMC said the fraudster was an internally displaced person living in Benghazi. He was traced and the money recovered. It was handed back to the nurses at a brief ceremony at the hospital.
One of the three women said they thought they had found an excellent way to send badly-needed money to relatives back home in India. When it became clear that they had been tricked they contacted the hospital security. “We are extremely grateful to the security people here at the hospital. We are so happy to have the money back”.
