Police officers detained the leader of a criminal group housing speculators, which was ... 39-year-old employee of one of the district prosecutor`s offices of the regional center.

"FACTS" talked about how, in the Cherkassy region for two years operated group housing speculators, who posing as employees of the city administration, offered trusting citizens cheap apartments. In fact, these apartments were. Receiving advance considerable sums of money (a couple of months candidates for low-income housing should be about 20 thousand dollars or even more), fraudsters have led their clients in building under construction, explaining that it is here and will be given an apartment to future newcomers.

The whole scam pulled nearly a million dollars. Fraudsters, despite the presence at the hands of large sums of money were not going to leave Cherkasy, although deluded citizens phoned them with the requirement to provide a flat, or return the money almost every day.

At the time of writing the previous material to this case, "Facts" were aware of the fact that, on suspicion of committing a crime arrested three people: two women and a man. And recently employees of Cherkasy Regional police detained one more persons on the case of housing fraud. It turned out ... 39-year-old employee of the prosecutor`s office.

Because this woman worked as a secretary of one of the district prosecutor`s offices in Cherkasy, then it had access to various forms and documents needed for fraud. As told to "FACTS" Head of Cherkasy Oblast cupola militia Valery Dernovoi, namely it is up to the last detail has developed a plan for this scam. Perhaps this is due to its long cover-up crooks go unpunished. During a search at the head of the criminal group have found copies of passports and identification numbers disappointed citizens.
