Apparently, the "modus operandi" was to bring the victims to a parking lot where used vehicles are kept to see the product she was supposedly selling, and then she asked for a cash advance to seal the transaction, which never appeared. It was learned the sum total of all the complaints indicate this woman was able to capture (steal) more than $400,000 dollars from all of her victims.
The authorities are investigating to determine if there are other people working together with the woman who was detained. She will be turned over to prosecutors in the coming days, who will continue the investigations. (Critica)
Editor's Comment: So this woman would simply advertise a used car for sale, probably a great car for a great price. When someone responded she would take them to see the car, agree on a sale price, and then ask for a cash advance to seal the deal. But then she would just keep the cash and move on to her next victim. Pretty simple scam. Have you been the victim of a crime? If so, file a complaint with the DIJ. This case is a perfect example. This woman victimized more than 40 people and was finally caught and stopped because all of those people complained. If you've been victimized and don't complain, then the criminal will be free to do the same thing to the next victim.
