The Abu Dhabi Family, Civil and Administrative Cases Court obligated a female service company manager to pay a man Dhs85,000 plus a delayed interest of 5 per cent and a compensation of Dhs5,000 on fraud charges.
The manager deluded the man through an Instagram ad into taking out a permanent residence for him and his family in a European country in exchange for Dhs85,000.
The case dated back to a lawsuit filed by the victim against the defendant in which he said that she fraudulently took Dhs85,000 from him through an Instagram ad in return for a permanent residence for him and his family members in a European country.
In his lawsuit, the victim indicated that he was deceived by the company, which took his money but did not do what it said it would.
The victim added that he communicated with the defendant to recover his money but the company did not respond. The Court of First Instance ruled that the defendant pay a fine of Dhs40,000 to be followed by deportation.
The company was also obligated to pay a fine of Dhs40,000. The company and its manager, however, appealed and the Court of Appeal upheld the ruling issued by the Court of First Instance to fine the company manager Dhs40,000 but revoked the ban issued against her and acquitted the company.
The father said he had given his son a proxy to run his business, and handed him over the card of his monthly pension, Dhs5,300, but he found that his son withdrew the pension amount, claiming it was suspended.
