Three people including a woman were arrested in connection with Saturday’s Rs.1.1 million eZ Cash scam,   
the Mount Lavinia Police Special Crimes Investigations Unit said. The detectives said the arrests were made on a complaint received about a group of people operating the scam. 

The complainant said these miscreants had offered prizes claiming he or she was a winner of a game organized by a mobile phone service provider.   
The investigations led to the suspects-aged between 37 and 50 being arrested and identified. They are residents of Wellampitiya, Kolonnawa and Mawanella.   
The Police also warned the public to be vigilant about such fraudulent activities.
