Illegal broker charged after cheating villagers

A man was charged in Kampot on Friday with cheating three people out of a combined US$7,500 after falsely promising work placements in South Korea. Deputy Police Chief In Chiva said the victims, from Kampot and Kratie provinces, filed complaints to police this month when the illegal broker disappeared from his village after collecting $2,500 from each person. According to In Chiva, the victims paid the suspect in 2007 and were told the Korean jobs would take time to secure. The suspect is being detained in provincial prison until his trial begins.
