Police on Monday said they were searching for a 39-year-old man after he was reported for taking some €2,000 from a woman under the guise of helping her get documentation to work and live in Cyprus but then allegedly threatened her life.
According to police, a woman reported that between August 2019 and June 2020, she gave the man €2,100. In return, he would assist her in getting all the necessary documents allowing her to work and live on the island.
He would also help her buy a car and allow her to pay instalments.
Nonetheless, the woman reported to police that the 39-year-old, after getting the money, told her he wouldn’t do anything of what he promised, nor would he return the money. He also allegedly threatened her life.
She reported the case to Paphos police on Sunday night. According to police, an arrest warrant has been issued against him and he is now wanted.
