Police officers arrested two suspected fraudsters in Kiel in the act.

The two 69 and 58-year-old suspects from Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony, are being investigated for aiding and abetting fraud, as the police announced on Monday.

A 59-year-old from Kiel had apparently entered into a meeting with a so-called picker.

Kiel - In fact, he turned on the police who struck when the money was scheduled to be picked up on Friday.

The 59-year-old was the victim of a false profit promise two years ago.

In this scam via email, victims are supposed to pay supposed lawyer or notary fees - mostly in the five-digit range.

After that, the contact breaks off, according to the police.

The promised millions in profits will not be paid out.
