A large group of individuals (both males and females) were arrested in Yoshkar-Ola on September 13th (a few days ago). The law enforcement conducted searches of several apartments and seized several computers. The females were all interpreters with good English skills. They were used for phone conversations, we have been told.
Police is trying to determine whether this group had any connection to another group of internet dating scammers that were arrested in Yoshkar-Ola several weeks ago.
