Swedish Muslims who had planned to travel to Mecca on the Hajj pilgrimage are believed to be among the victims of a Danish travel agent suspected of stealing their money and passports.

Four people from the Malmö area are believed to be among the travel agent's victims. They have reported the man to Malmö police for fraud and theft.

"We handed over our passports and paid 18,000 kronor to the agent. Now our passports have been cancelled, so we can't get anywhere, and the travel agent might try to use our passports for people smuggling," one of the victims told Metro.

Danish police are now searching for the suspected fraudster, who is believed to have gone into hiding.
