A fraudster who was wanted by Interpol of Uzbekistan was arrested in St. Petersburg
In the summer of 2021, the criminal created a group on Telegram and tricked its members into transferring money to a plastic card, attracting them to receive double income. The swindler, who did not fulfil his promise, stole other people's money and disappeared.
In July of this year, the criminal was placed on an international wanted list by the National Central Bureau of Interpol in the Republic of Uzbekistan, accused of having committed the crime specified in Article 168, Part 3 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
As a result of information provision and quick search activities, the fraudster's hiding place was revealed, and soon he was arrested in the city of St. Petersburg.
Currently, he is expected to be extradited to Uzbekistan for trial.
