Dubai beggar arrested for asking for money on WhatsApp


- Advertisment -

An Arab national who used WhatsApp to seek alms during the holy month of Ramadan has been arrested by the Dubai Police. 

For the previous weeks, authorities in the emirate have repeatedly warned residents not to fall for the sob stories of professional beggars. 

“Dubai Police urges members of the community to ignore cyber-beggars who use social media, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, to scam people and philanthropists,” Dubai Police posted on their Twitter account. 

Professional beggars or those recruiting people from outside the country to work as beggars can be fined up to AED100,000.
