A woman has been charged with fraud offences in connection with incidents which are suspected of occurring in Hatfield recently.
It is alleged that, on a number of occasions, a property was falsely advertised for rent in Hatfield and deposits were being taken from people. However it is believed that the property was never intended to be rented out and the deposit money was never returned to the alleged victims.
Jecintha Krishnan, aged 34 and of Cherry Way, Hatfield, was charged on 18 January with fraud by false representation. She appeared at Hatfield Remand Court yesterday (19 January) and was remanded into custody.
PC Dave Murray from Hatfield Police Station said: â€œI would like to speak to anyone who believes they have been a victim if this type of crime in the Hatfield area. Please contact me via the Herts Police non-emergency number, 101 as soon as possible.â€
