Abu Dhabi Police

Twenty-nine members of a "bank fraud gang" have been arrested in the UAE.

Teams from the police force in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Ajman teamed up to nab the members of four gangs operating in the emirate.

They've been tricking people into sharing their bank details on the pretext of unlocking their blocked cards and accounts, officials explained.
