Turin family accused of running 'rip deal' fraud ring

Turin, June 4 - A Turin family accused of running a fraud ring was placed under special surveillance by law enforcement on Tuesday. Two million euros in real-estate assets were also confiscated. Investigators say that eight people, including the husband, wife, sons and daughters-in-law, had specialized in a new frontier in fraud - the "rip deal". The family members are accused of posing as entrepreneurs, financial brokers or rich sheiks. They allegedly offered advantageous currency-exchange or real-estate deals in northern Italy and abroad, but vanished as soon as they got their money, leaving their victims empty-handed.
