Stung Sen city police in Kampong Thom province on Tuesday cracked down on a company for luring customers to their office in order to sell overpriced electronics.
Colonel Nhem Chhun Ly, chief of Stung Sen police, said residents began filing complaints after being contacted by Duvera Kitchen Cambodia to come to the company’s office to receive a free portable power bank.
Upon coming to the company’s office, residents were then solicited to purchase the company’s electronic products before receiving their portable power bank, Col Chhun Ly said.
Following complaints, police uncovered fraudulent activities conducted by the company. Col Chhun Ly said police found electronic products stored in a hotel in the city.
Company staff told residents that the products were worth $2,000, but would sell them at 50 percent discount, he said.
