One of the greatest preventions of counterfeit money distribution was undertaken in Abu Dhabi.
A janitor from Cameroon was going to sell up to $10 000 000. However, he was only a go-between and was to find a buyer for 900,000 Dhs.
The Criminal Investigation Department managed to detect the entire African gang due to the actions of the undercover agents, who pretended to be interested in purchasing money and expressed their will to inspect it.
Head of the Criminal Investigation Department, Colonel Dr. Rashid Mohammad Borshid claimed that "the suspect arrived to the designated location and was caught red-handed as he opened the bag containing the counterfeit money. Much to the surprise of the suspect, we had set up an ambush prior to his arrival".
The confessions achieved by the Abu Dhabi police enabled them to find the owner of the money as well.
The counterfeit $10 000 000 were to be sold for about $2 500 000.
