Fake Italian dentist tried to extort money from patient

Italian police arrested a man who pretended to be a dentist and attempted to extort a large sum of cash from a patient in Turin, Italy, according to Ansa. Having agreed a price of €10,000 to perform some dental work, the fake dentist decided to more than double the price to €22,000.

Having sent threatening messages via Facebook and WhatsApp, the bogus practitioner and a friend attempted to extract the money from the patient in person but found only the police waiting and was subsequently arrested.
