Woman scams man of Dh185,000 for customs

An African woman scammed an Arab man into believing she had 18 gold bars in an African country and required Dh50,000 to get them through customs. In return, she promised him eight gold bars.

The two were in contact through Instagram.

The man started sending her the money in installments until it reached Dh185,000, including two payments he gave to someone in Dubai in cash.

The man reported the incident to the police after realizing that he had been defrauded.

The person to whom he had given the money was detained. Dubai’s Public Prosecution accused him of fraud.

The accused acknowledged receiving money from the victim in the police inference report and investigations by the Public Prosecution, but denied committing fraud. The court then acquitted the accused. KD/Expat Media
