HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi's Dong Da District Police detained a woman on Tuesday for posing as a doctor at the city's Bach Mai Hospital to swindle money from patients.
Nguyen Thi Thin, 37, from central Thanh Hoa Province's Quang Phong Commune, was caught red-handed trying to approach and beguile patients into buying specialised medicine, planning to then flee with the money.
Thin confessed to having committed six cases of frauds in September and October, earning a total of VND16 million ($769).
The scam is now under further investigation. — VNS
