End of the game for a man placed in police custody to Nancy. He is suspected of having organized a system of fraud in the CONSTRUCTION sector.

What is the principle ? The suspect was creating a number of businesses short-lived with a maximum life span of a year and a half, through which he employed undeclared workers and not paying any social security benefit, specified to the AFP the research section (SR) of Nancy. The individual, careful and who saw big, had, however, created a company that paid the benefits, but not used in reality as smoke screen for the companies to be fraudulent. And this allowed him above all to have access to large groups of the building.
