HA NOI (VNS)— Ha Dong District's Police arrested Nguyen Van Hoa, 28, from Ung Hoa District on Sunday for allegedly attempting to disguise himself as a soldier and policeman to carry out fraud.
Local man, Bui Van Khai claims Hoa used the ruse to defraud him out of VND830 million (US$40,000).
The case started last February when Hoa impersonated a military officer of High Command of Border Guards and promised to help Khai's son get a job at Military Hospital 103 or 108 in return for VND250 million ($12,000).
Hoa also received a further VND580 million ($27,800) for making the same promises for Khai's two daughters.
Hoa spent the entire amount without fulfilling his false promises. — VNS
