In the Russian city of Armavir, a 22-year-old swindler was detained, who was selling non-existent air tickets to Turkmenistan, the Utrenny Yug newspaper reports .
The swindler published advertisements for the sale of tickets on the Internet and thus found four “clients” who transferred 30,000 rubles per ticket (about $500) to his account. Having received the money, the detainee stopped communicating.
The fraudster faces up to six years in prison. Whether the money was returned to the victims is not specified.
Meanwhile, the Turkmenportal publication reports on the resumption of the sale of international air tickets online on the official website of Turkmen Airlines.
Planes fly from Moscow to Turkmenbashi twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays. It was not possible to find free tickets until the end of the year, all the seats are already taken. Tickets for next year are not yet on sale online.
