AMMAN — Interpol’s office in Amman, in coordination with Egyptian Interpol, arrested an African suspect involved in a scam case, while search was still under way for an Arab woman associated with the same case, a Public Security Department statement said Sunday.

A citizen had filed a complaint with the Criminal Investigation Department, in which he stated he was scammed out of $100,000 by an African man and an Arab woman who convinced him they could perform sorcery.

After questioning, the African suspect revealed a possible third accomplice and search for him was under way. Interpol has also said people who wish to travel want to make sure their record is clean, can send text their names and national numbers to 94444 from any mobile phone.
