TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A woman identified as VIMA (39) was arrested for her suspected involvement in online scams of branded purse and bags. The woman who used Instagram as her scamming medium was nabbed by Metro Jaya Police’s general criminal investigation on July 24.

Metro Jaya Police Spokesman Grand Commissioner Raden Prabowo Argo Yuwono stated that VIMA or Bela pretended to sell Chanel handbags under an account name of @bebebags21199.
