An Asian employee, 31, forged a salary certificate supposed to be issued by a government authority, a residency permit sticker and a bank statement of account and submitted the same to a bank to get a Dhs20,000 credit card.
The defendant confessed before Dubai Public Prosecution that a bank representative came to him at his place of work and offered him a Dhs20,000 credit card against submission of a number of documents including a statement of account issued by a bank, a residency permit sticker and a salary certificate.
The defendant who agreed to the offer prepared the required documents and submitted the same to the bank representative.
His application was approved and the credit card was delivered to him.
After checking the defendant’s statement of account and communicating with the issuing bank, the statement was found to be forged, and so were the other submitted documents.
