Man flees Dubai after stealing Dh100,000 from 2 credit cards
The man forged a residency visa, falsifying details about his profession and workplace.
A Dubai expat has been charged in absentia at the Court of First Instance with fraud and forgery.
Dubai public prosecution records show that the 37-year-old Pakistani expat fraudulently availed of two credit cards with a Dh100,000 limit from a bank. He withdrew the whole amount shortly after receiving the cards from the bank.
The man forged a residency visa, falsifying details about his profession and workplace. He also faked a salary certificate and the bank application form which he submitted to the bank.
He disappeared right after withdrawing the whole cash balance from the cards.
The case dates back to April 24 last year and was registered at Al Rafaa police station.
A Lebanese bank manager said that the defendant approached the customer service section at their branch between October and November 2016. "He presented documents, including a salary certificate and a passport (which turned out later to have a forged visa stamped on it). He was issued two credit cards with a total value of Dh100,000. He withdrew all the cash balance available in the cards."
The manager told the prosecutor that by the time the bank administration discovered that the papers presented by the accused were fake, the latter had already fled the UAE. They filed a complaint at Al Rafaa police station against him.
The public prosecution evidence includes a letter from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners' Affairs stating that the defendant's visa, used on the passport he presented at the bank, is fake.
The company, to which the salary certificate was attributed, also stated in a letter that it was not issued from them and that the signature on the document is forged.
The trial has been adjourned to December 15.
