AJMAN – Two members of a gang accused of duping people by claiming to double their money using black magic have been arrested in Ajman.
The African suspects were arrested on Wednesday, according to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Ajman Police.
Police seized fake money and tools in their possession.
Police were tipped off about the gang’s modus operandi and sent an undercover policeman to pose as a client.
The suspects asked the victim to hand over cash in exchange for black bank notes that they claimed were $100 bills, said Major Mohammad Yafoor Al Ghafli, deputy director of CID at Ajman Police.
During the sting operation, the suspects were caught in the act.
Police said that the duo, identified through their initials D.W.A. and F.B.A., have been staying illegally in the UAE.
Their case has been referred to the public prosecution and they are expected to face charges. GAD/Expat Media
