Teams of Eastern Region Police Department successfully nabbed 7 members of an Asian gangfor committing multiple frauds on bank clients around the country.
Police investigations lead to the gang’s identities and whereabouts, and the gang members were arrested within a record time of less than 12 hours.
Police officials revealed that the gang’s crimes were exposed after a report was filed by female victim, stating that she fell victim for a fraud operation by an anonymous who claimed to be one of her bank’s employees.
The fraudster claimed to be carrying out an update of the victim’s bank details, and robbed her of Dhs32,000.
The gang carried out their bank fraud operations through contacting bank clients, asking for victims’ account details using a fake update system excuse, then finally robbing different amounts from the targeted accounts.
The seven members were ambushed one by one and arrested before committing anymore scams.
Last but not least, police urged individuals to be more alert and not fall victim for fraudsters, by protecting their bank details and not trust to give any personal information without confirming the call source.
