A scammer has been found guilty of a string of frauds in the Key West area.
In June 2016, a customer called the law firm Pravin’s in Key West and demanded a massage in exchange for $20,000.
The woman told the firm she was an Indonesian woman and was looking for a masseuse.
Pravin had a client called in for a massage but when the client arrived at the spa, the customer saw no woman waiting outside.
The customer asked the woman what was wrong and Pravins assistant, Gyanendra, said she could not help her and called police.
Gyanendra said he tried to call the woman to verify her identity but she refused to answer and called him a liar.
The man called the police who arrested Pravina.
Pivina’s lawyer, Ravi Narayan, told reporters that the woman was an Indian woman who was looking to hire a masseur for a business meeting.
He said Pravi’s did not have the right to call in the woman, as it was a business that required a valid license.
“If she had called to verify the identity of the person, she would have been able to have an appointment with a licensed professional and a massage could have been done,” Narayan said.
