Maid admits to adultery with midnight visitor

By Staff

An Asian housemaid admitted to the Public Prosecution to have indulged in adultery even as the person involved in the crime said she was his girlfriend.

According to a report in ‘Al Khaleej’, the owner of the house had complained to police that a stranger had entered his house at about 3am and that his cook had seen the accused while he escaped by jumping over the fence. Unfortunately, in his attempt to flee the place, he left behind his passport, which led to his arrest.

The housemaid confessed that she and the accused became friends via Facebook and that she had an indecent relationship with him.

She added that her roommate helped her by keeping a watch on family members and alerting her when someone came by.

The accused, meanwhile, told the Prosecution that the housemaid was his girlfriend and he was involved with her in a sexual relationship.

E-crime gang allegedly swindled money from unsuspecting job seekers

A gang who swindled potential job seekers using electronic media has been referred to the Abu Dhabi Court of Misdemeanour.

An ‘Al Khaleej’ report quoting Abu Dhabi Public Prosecution said the accused targeted bank customers and job seekers.

They allegedly sent spam mails and withdrew money from victims’ bank accounts.

Abu Dhabi Finance Public Prosecution received a number of complaints from victims of electronic fraud, who claimed money was withdrawn from their accounts and sent to other accounts in the same bank without their consent.

According to Prosecution records, the accused allegedly send emails to people who applied for jobs online. They then convinced the job seekers that they were considered for the job and sought their bank account details. For instance, one victim would be told that he would receive transactions from the commercial activities he was hired to do. Later they would ask him to transfer amount to an account they provide.

Meanwhile, the gang would send a fake SMS to another job seeker client asking for his account details. They would then withdraw amount from the latter person and transfer it to the account of the first person.

Investigations revealed that text messages via mobile phone or e-mail were sent from European countries.
