Travel agent wanted after pocketing thousands from customers (Updated)

People from all over Cyprus are coming forward to report the 37-year-old woman who allegedly stole thousands of euros from customers for whom she had booked holiday packages.

The woman, who is wanted by police, is suspected to have fled the country and has been put on a stop list.

According to police, from the start of the year until Thursday, the suspect, who owns a travel agency in Aradippou, had booked holidays for dozens of people, asking them to pay the whole cost of the package to her in advance.

However, she paid only a small deposit to book the vacations and pocketed the rest of the money.

On Thursday, 15 people reported her at the Aradippou police station, and many more called in the evening on the same issue.

By Friday morning, it became clear she had appropriated at least €26,000, but while police expected the final amount to exceed €80,000, by the afternoon they said more people were coming forward by the hour, and the sum is likely to be closer to €100,000.
