Three people have been arrested in Ajman for scamming people through phone calls.

The trio stole more than AED 2,800,000 after unsuspecting residents shared their bank account details after they were tricked into believing it was for a "banking system update".

Police launched an investigation after receiving a complaint from an Asian woman, who was targeted by the gang for AED 10,000.

They raided their apartment in Ajman's Al Nuaimiya area, and seized 21 mobile phones, tablets and laptops, in addition to bank cards, cash and gold jewellery.

During interrogation, the gang confessed to the crime.
