Two men have been arrested for scamming two elderly women out of €15,000
It has been reported that two men in Cork have been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged fraud.
The men committed a fraud that resulted in two elderly women being the victim of scamming, and losing approximately €15,000.
The charges are in relation to two separate incidents that were reported to police in Cork on the 3rd and 29th of September.
In the first incident, the two men called to a house offering a woman building services that were never carried out.
In the second incident, one of the arrested men called to a house and pretended to be the relative of a neighbour.
Both homeowners, who were women in their 70s and 80s, handed over a combined total of €15,000.
Now, two men in their 20s have been arrested and brought to Mayfield Garda Station, where they have been charged.
The two men are due to appear before Cork District Court tomorrow.
