DUBAI // A man who used fraudulently obtained credit cards to purchase goods worth Dh1.7 million has been sentenced to two years in prison.

City Bank discovered the fraud in August last year when the bank received a letter from Standard Chartered warning them of the scam.

The bank checked all documents submitted to obtain credit cards and found that those provided by AA, from Pakistan, were forged. He was then arrested and confessed.

Nine other people charged with him were cleared by the court.

The Criminal Court ordered him to be deported after serving his jail term.
