An Asian salesman was sentenced to 6 months in jail, followed by deportation, for forging official documents to defraud his business partner in Dubai.
Official records indicate that business partner had filed a scam report after he found out about the defendant’s forgery of the company’s official stamp and the victim’s signature.
The defendant used the forged documents to open a new company of his own name and steal the victim’s customers after convincing them that the company belongs to the victim.
Apparently, the defendant used the forged signature to transfer his visa on the new company he started to carry out his scam plans.
He was eventually arrested by police and prosecuted on forgery charges to be sentenced to 6 months in jail.
