Greek Gang Scams the Unemployed, Promising Jobs in Canada

Greek policeA Greek gang in Thessaloniki has been deceiving unemployed citizens by promising them employment opportunities in Canada.
Six persons have already been charged (two men and four women) and a Greek couple — the alleged head of the gang — has been arrested.
According to Greek police, the gang was operating three employment and immigration agencies in the center of Thessaloniki and were promising jobs in Canada to unemployed people with serious economic issues. In order to convince their victims of the agency’s credibility, the gang was asking for numerous official documents and down payments so as to finalize the alleged employment agreements between their clients and the companies in Canada.
The agencies were founded in September 2012 and since then, they have scammed twenty unemployed people from whom they took 40,000 euros. Their headquarters was located in Bulgaria.
Moreover, numerous documents linking the gang with the case were found during police raids of the gang’s houses and agencies.
The arrested couple was sent to the prosecutor of Thessaloniki and an ongoing police investigation is searching for more victims of the gang.
