Greek Police arrested a 54-year-old man in Katerini, northern Greece, after it was proved that he was pretending to be a physician and he had “treated” six unsuspecting patients. The man had converted his warehouse into a doctor’s office.
According to charges filed, the man had set up a makeshift doctor’s office in a semi-open warehouse where he “treated” patients. He was visited by six people in total. Two of the victims paid him 140 euros for medical examinations and advice.
Police found 43 jars of homemade ointments, six magnifying glasses, three books of medical advice, 44 needles – four of which were used – and various examination documents. Police are looking into the possibility that the man had practiced the same fraud in other regions of Greece.
