Kashari allegedly defrauded a businessman, identified as M.E. A few months ago, a friend of the businessman recommended a property agent in Sharjah to him as he was looking for free-hold villas. Pretending to be experienced in property deals, Mohammed Ahmed Al Mutawea, later identified as Mohammed Ahmed Kashari, offered him a villa under construction in the Al Muhesna I area for Dh800,000. He told M.E. that its owner urgently needed the money. The businessman paid Kashari a deposit of Dh150,000.

After a few days, the accused offered M.E. another house in Nad Al Hamar priced at Dh1,200,000 and asked for a deposit of Dh20,000 to complete the procedures.

When the businessman wanted to meet the owner, Kashari claimed that the owner had incurred a huge loss in shares, and did not want anyone to know about it. The accused then asked for a deposit of Dh500,000. The businessman paid a deposit of Dh275,000 for it.

After receiving the money, the accused stopped replying to the businessman’s calls. Later, he found that all the property papers given to him by Kashari were forged. Kashari was arrested and referred to the Dubai Public Prosecution.
