According to news reports, the suspect, who is commonly known as “Mostafa El-Bank,” is a tuktuk driver with a criminal record. He allegedly swindled victims in Aswan and other governorates in Upper Egypt out of nearly EGP 200 million (about $10.9 million) over the past few months by claiming that he was able to sell their cattle for higher prices than their true value.
When the suspect then disappeared without paying, the victims reported him to the authorities and public prosecution for swindling their money and cattle.
