Divided by borders, together in crimes
As per the Criminal Investigation Department of the Madinah Police, two criminals involved in 146 financial frauds have been arrested. The two are expats; one is a Pakistani 🇵🇰 national, while the other is an Indian national 🇮🇳.
They were using their residential apartments as a fraud operational den. This was kind of their headquarters from where their actions and operations were executed. They were equipped with various devices and SIM cards.
They chose innocent people to be their victims. They ran fake social media campaigns to set a trap on the people and attain their data to sneak into their bank accounts and access their money. So far, they have victimized 146 people and accessed SR 22 million unlawfully.
We rarely see a partnership in business between a Pakistani and an Indian although they share a similar culture and background, but these two fraudsters partnered in a bad venture.
According to the Madinah Police, the two have been arrested, and legal actions have been taken against them. They have also been referred to the Public Prosecution and will soon face legal consequences.
