Samana fraudster arrested
Members of the Intelligence branch of the Specialized Tourist Security Corps (Cestur) have arrested a young man in Santiago on accusations of defrauding dozens of tourists over the Internet during 2013.
According to the report, Darlin Jose Teodoro Joaquin, aged 24, set up a website for illegally selling tourist packages in the Balcones Tourist Complex in Las Terrenas province. The tourists would send him large sums of money in dollars and euros and would then discover they had no reservations.
He was found in possession of eight credit cards as well as personal and identity documents.
He used to be employed as the head of reception at the luxury resort and was being sought by the police who had an arrest warrant issued in Samana.
He was sent to prison for three months on remand.
