Dubai ∙ An Asian man has been jailed for one month for extorting 52,000 dirhams (more than Rs. 11 lakh) by using fake information and identity documents. The court also ordered to deport him after serving his sentence.
He committed the fraud by hacking the correspondence of a prominent company and creating a fake email. An investigation by the Public Prosecution of Dubai revealed that the accused sent an email to the defrauded company to transfer Dh52,000 to the account for the tender.
The accused created fake documents to transfer the amount. After handing over the money, the manager of the company came to know about the fraud when he talked to the representatives of the leading company. After examining the evidence, the court sentenced the accused to a month’s imprisonment, to pay a fine of the stolen amount, and to be deported after serving the sentence.
