Sakvithi Ranasinghe is a Sri Lankan fraudster who executed land scams and chit fund scams. He rose to popularity in his native, Colombo Island for his English knowledge and used it to earn money. He used that money wisely by opening a land property firm and Chit funding firm.
He used his forging skills to create counterfeit land documents and sold those to many people. ‘In 2008, as the victims of Ranasinghe rose against him, the central bank entered into the scene and exposed all of his scams’. He fled from Colombo to escape jurisdiction but was later captured and was sentenced to two years of rigorous imprisonment.
