Fake jobs may have been identity theft
The 130 people who turned up for non-existent jobs on Monday had given their bank details to what is feared to have been a fake company.
Internet fraud expert Peter Forsman says to Swedish radio P4 Kronoberg that the victims of the potential fraud may find that SMS-loans or other similar commitments have been taken out in their name.
But so far it is impossible to say why a company "hired" so many people for well-paid warehouse jobs that did not exist.
The police's national centre for fraud is investigating the case. But expert Peter Forsman says if this proves to be a trick there has never been a case of fraud based on a fake company, on this scale, in Sweden before.
