The Dubai Criminal Court has convicted a Filipina saleswoman of forging her employer’s signature on an application to procure an iPhone4 service and has sentenced her to three months in jail.
Identified as SW, the 31-year-old presented herself as the marketing manager of a company owned by Abdullah Ahmad and got the iPhone service on the company’s account from the telecom operator du.
Testifying in the court against the accused, Syed Zaker, a Pakistani accountant employed by the company said that a month earlier the accused asked him to supply her with the company’s bank statement, which he refused to do.
“Then she sought a statement from a branch of the company. The secretary at the branch told me that the accused asked her for a bank statement. She also told me that SW has obtained an iPhone services in the company’s name.”
The court heard that Zaker enquired with the du about the service and found out that there was an application signed by the company’s director. When approached, the director denied signing any such application and filed a police complaint.
After initially denying the accusation, SW later admitted to forging the signature of the company’s director, which she repeated in the court.
