Ajman court sentences fraudster to a year in jail
An Arab expat sold land that did not exist to an Emirati woman for $125,778 (AED462,000), according to court reports.
A court in Ajman sentenced the man to a year in prison after he was convicted of the crime, reported Emirates 24/7, quoting the Emarat Al Youm newspaper.
The woman reported the man to police after she was unable to contact him about the land, which he claimed was located in his home country.
She told court the fraudster had asked her to transfer the funds to his brother at home and that investment in the land would yield at least $272,276 (AED1 million).
