Two Asians in Dh10,000 fake prize scam fined Dh 50,000

Two Asians were arrested following a Dh 10,000 fake prize scam and a foiled second attempt at scamming a GCC National who was tricked into believing that he had won a million-dollar prize in Al-Dhafrah. They were fined Dh 50,000, sentenced to 2 years in prison and will be deported afterwards.

The duo called the man on his mobile phone and told the man that he had to deposit Dh10,000 into an account before he’s awarded the prize. The victim then followed the instructions but didn’t receive any prize money. When the victim called to follow up, he was instructed to deposit another Dh 10,000, as reported by Al Ittihad.

The man then told the police about the incident after realizing that he had been swindled. The police immediately took action and tracked the owner of the account. Two Asians were arrested in the process.

During the hearing in the court of first instance, the second defendant claimed that his friend (the first accused) only told him that he was facing some difficulties in his own account and required another account to be used for receiving a certain amount which should then be handed over upon crediting.

The lawyer of the second accused challenged the verdict and told the appeals court that his client didn’t know anything about the crime, and there was no evidence to prove that he was involved in the scam.

The appeals court deferred its judgement to October 20.
