According to local daily Akhbar Al Khaleej, she also managed to take 4,500 Bahraini dinars (nearly Dh44,000) as Mahr from the three husbands before they discovered they were all victims of her scheme.

After the three victims decided to report her, the Public Prosecution launched an investigation, during which it was revealed that the woman had managed to set them up by distorting and forging her personal details.

She stayed with the first husband for four months and then with the second man for one month. Her stay with the third husband didn't last long either, as he began having suspicions a week after their marriage.

The woman denied all accusations and claimed that she had married each of them after divorcing the others. However, investigations revealed that her claim was false.
