Fake dollars used in bogus diamond deal

By Eman Al Baik

The Dubai Criminal Court has asked the Prosecution to re-investigate a case involving a bogus diamond deal worth SR1.112 million and fake US dollars.

Two Cameroonians and an Iraqi stand accused of conning a Saudi businessman in a diamond deal.

WRA, (fugitive) and HBN, both from Cameroon, and ISM, 43, an Iraqi, on March 1, 2010, offered Fayez bin Naif diamonds for sale.

Naif gave them the money which they put it in a box for checking.

They then made an excuse to delay the deal and handed him the money back from the box.

Later when Naif checked the money it was fake.

A policeman testified that in the house of the Cameroonian, tools used for doubling money were confiscated, in addition to the fake dollar notes.

Two of the accused are also facing charges of overstaying on their visit visa.
