12 job scam victims stranded in UAE return home


DUBAI – Twelve men who were stranded in the UAE after they were scammed by a fake recruiter have now returned home, thanks to the help of Sharjah Police and charity workers.

The men were hired from Europe and South America and arrived in Sharjah on visit visa. They were promised high-paying jobs that turned out to be non-existent.

“They said the man (fake recruiter) promised them jobs in Sharjah,” said Lt. Col. Ahmad Al Marri, head of Community Police Department at Sharjah Police. He did not disclose when the incident happened.
