Four Moroccan women and two Turkish nationals were arrested, Thursday, for their alleged involvement in a wedding fraud scheme, Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah reports.

The suspects are accused of defrauding would-be husbands, from Kutahya, a city in western Turkey, by arranging weddings with Moroccan women. «Women and male suspects would later receive cash from potential spouses under the name of wedding expenses, only to disappear shortly before the wedding date», the newspaper revealed.

In January, one of the suspects related to the wedding fraud scheme, identified as M. S., was arrested during a talk show after he confessed that he tricked suitors into marrying his accomplices. «Very old Turkish men, especially from the Kutahya region, gave me 90,000 dirhams to find them young Moroccan women», he said. One of the suspects arrested on Thursday is his brother.

During the same talk show, one of his victims said that the man came back from Morocco with a young woman for him to marry. However, she allegedly «disappeared» after he gave him money.
