Two arrested in Ajman for selling fake dollars


Ajman Police have arrested two people for claiming to turn paper into hundred dollar bills.

According to authorities, they reportedly told a resident that they can double his money for AED15,000. 

In exchange for the money, they gave the victim 'black notes' sprayed with a chemical liquid, claiming they turn into dollar bills when washed. 

The person notified Ajman's Department of Criminal Investigation that he had been tricked, which was when a team was formed to arrest the scammers. 

Both of the accused confessed to their crime. 

Officials collaborated with the Ajman resident, asking him to request for more 'black-notes' from the fraudsters in exchange for AED100,000. 

They were met by police officials at the pick-up location where they were arrested and admitted to their crimes.
