Residents advised not to let strangers manage their bank accounts
Abu Dhabi Police warned against the practice to protect residents from drug dealers.
Abu Dhabi Police have advised residents not to allow strangers access to their bank account to withdraw or transfer money inside or outside the country.
According to a recent tweet form them, they have faced a number of cases where people were exploited by drug dealers by unwittingly giving them access to their bank accounts, making them accountable before the law.
Victims were often told the profits were generated from normal business operations but were unaware that the funds were transferred through illicit drug trafficking.
Police warned that when the account holders authorise such criminals, who exploit the chance to find a safe way to collect money to buy or sell drugs, they expose themselves to the risk of facing money laundering or drug charges.
