Police have arrested a 50-year-old woman who masqueraded as an Absorption Ministry employee and sold fictional subsidized vacation packages to new immigrants. The police central district fraud squad began an investigation after a complaint was received from the Absorption Ministry in July. Most of the victims of the sting were former CIS residents living in the center of the country. The woman, herself an immigrant from the former CIS, was arrested by police a few days ago in Tel Aviv's Hatikva quarter. She admitted to twelve cases of selling non-existent holiday packages and pocketing hundreds of shekels in each case. The Ramle Magistrate's Court released the suspect on conditional bail.
