Dubai salesman denies fraudulently trying to transfer himself Dh1m

S E allegedly forged two transfer applications and submitted them to Union National Bank employees requesting that they transfer Dh1 million from the account of a company owned by P P.

DUBAI// A salesman has denied using another man’s Emirates ID in an attempt to transfer Dh1 million from the victim’s bank account.

Prosecutors told Dubai Criminal Court that 31-year-old Indian S E visited a bank in Al Muraqqabat using an ID card belonging to P P, whose nationality and age were not in records.

S E allegedly forged two transfer applications and submitted them to Union National Bank employees requesting that they transfer Dh1 million from the account of a company owned by P P.

S E is charged with using an official document belonging to others with the intention of carrying out a criminal act and with attempting to illegally obtain Dh1 million as well as forging two transfer applications and using them.

He denied all of the charges in court this morning. “I have done nothing of this, someone else did this crime, my mistake was that I accompanied him to the bank but I didn’t know his intentions at the time,” S E told judges.

Jordanian bank manager O A, 43, testified that S E was arrested on December 22 last year after the scam was discovered.

A verdict is expected on March 17.
