Swindler invents a new way of committing crimes

Banner ad, suggesting “very confidential service” appeared in Russian part of Internet not long ago. Police has paid attention to this banners and found out that unknown “specialist” promoted killer’s services. Detectives made an appointment with the suspect. At the meeting the “customers” were supposed to pay $500 in advance and render information about the “victim”. It was scheduled that after the task is performed, the “killer” would get a few thousand dollars. They met. The young man was very surprised to find handcuffs on his hands after he had received $500, marked with special solution. In the course of the investigation it became clear, that the “killer” was not going to murder anybody. He just wanted to get $500. It is still unknown if he was planning to blackmail the customers in the future. Policemen consider that once at least he managed to get money from his “credulous clients”, "Ploschad svobodi" reports. One thing makes the investigation more difficult: none of his deceived clients would call the police.
