Tunisian sought over employment scam

Police in Thessaloniki were seeking on Wednesday a Tunisian national over an alleged employment scam.

The 59-year-old suspect is believed to have charged 102 people seeking employment over 62,000 euros through an illegal agency he allegedly operated in Athens and Thessaloniki.

Reports suggested that the man lured unsuspecting citizens looking for a job by signing fake contracts and subsequently demanding 600 euros as a fee for getting them paid positions abroad.
