Paphos district court on Thursday remanded a 40 year old man in custody for three days on suspicion of impersonation and acquiring money and products under false pretences.

Police said that the man had pretended to be a manager of a hotel chain and obtained a household appliance on the promise that he would secure a huge contract for the shop. He then obtained €2500 from the same shopkeeper in order to handle the tenders process.

In another instance, he had pretended to be working for a company in order to collect €1200 for a job.
