Two expats who swindled a woman out of BD2,000 after deceiving her to expose her bank account information have had their jail terms upheld.
The pair were earlier sentenced to five years behind bars each, followed by deportation. They were also fined BD1,000 each.
They are said to have posed as officials serving in a local exchange company, and they requested the woman to reveal her bank card details via a phone conversation. They threatened that her card will be deactivated in case she doesn’t cooperate with them.
