Trader loses Dh1.2 million to scammers in Dubai

An Indian and a Pakistani national are facing charges in court after they masterminded fraudulent transactions that cost a bank customer to lose over Dh1.2 million.

The Court of First Instance heard the case that was filed by a 63-year-old Emirati trader, who later learned about it when he was called by the bank about the transactions made using his mobile line.

According to court details, these transactions were done over the period from January 27 to February 9, 2016.

The 30-year-old Indian suspect was said to be working for a recruitment office that is in a contractual relation with the bank.

He allegedly used his power of access into the bank system and leaked the victim’s account and other personal data to a 25-year-old Pakistani clerk.

There was another unidentified cohort that also played a major part in the scheme as he was experienced in targeting specific bank accounts.

Since the victim’s phone number was linked to the bank accounts, the suspects used this to gain access to the money there.

There were also seven other men who helped and abetted the pair.

They produced a fake copy of the victim’s ID and presented it to a telecommunication provider branch. One of them impersonated the victim and applied for a lost SIM card replacement. They also offered and paid an employee of Dh10,000 bribe so the service to the original SIM card was disconnected.

It was until on February 10 that the bank manager called the victim and told him about the transactions.

He then lodged a complaint at Naif police station.

The Indian and Pakistani nationals were both apprehended at the Dubai International Airport. They were allegedly trying to flee the UAE, according to a police lieutenant.

The trader was using his personal phone number and linked it with all transactions done on his accounts so he could easily manage it.

The trader was said to be following up on the business and bank transactions on behalf of a GCC businessman.

The trial will still continue on October 27.
