The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at the Ministry of Interior (MoI) has arrested a gang of three Africans who had entered Qatar “to practise deception and fraud” in the country.
According to a statement issued by the ministry, the fraudsters used to trick their victims into believing that they have the ability to transfer foreign currencies and multiply them.
The CID had received information that some miscreants have been meeting clients at a number of hotels and public places and trying to give them the impression that they can transfer foreign currencies where the beneficiary would get much higher amounts than what have been entrusted to them in Qatar.
Consequently, the CID formed a search team and took the necessary legal procedures to arrest these men while they were engaged in criminal action. After being arrested red-handed, they confessed to the crimes and a number of counterfeited dollar and euro bank notes were seized from them, along with some chemicals they used in their illegal operations.
Eventually, they were referred to the concerned legal entities in the country to proceed with their prosecution.
