The trial of the case has begun in a Dubai court. The 33-year-old Indian man lost money. He called the number found on the card with the picture of the beautiful young women and confirmed the matter. The cost of a massage is 200 dirhams. The young man then went straight to the massage parlor in Al Rifa.
But there were African young women there. The young man said that when he handed over 200 dirhams, he was asked to open a mobile banking app. The proposal was to transfer money from it. But when the young man was not ready, they took a knife and threatened to stab him in the neck and cover his face. A young woman took a credit card from her purse and withdrew 30,000 dirhams from an ATM.
Later, they were detained for one day and Dh250,000 was transferred from their accounts to their accounts. He was released the next day after stealing his iPhone. The youth said he immediately called the bank and lodged a complaint with the police.
