A Filipino woman has been accused of using a fake trade license and embezzling 143,000 dirhams (US$38,938) from an American businessman in Dubai.

The 44-year-old Filipina manager met with an American businessman on April 18 last year and convinced him to set up a cafe in Internet City. The American, who is originally from Syria, paid her 143,000 dirhams to finalize the formalities, including having a trade license issued for the business, Khaleej Times reported.

However, the American learned that the trade license the Filipina gave him was a fake one allegedly obtained via staff at the Al Barsha branch of the Department of Economic Development. He told officials he had nothing to do with the forged license and he was instructed to file a complaint with local police.

The American said the Filipina claimed she worked for a transaction clearance office. The police arrested the Filipina on July 8.

Police said the Filipina claimed she gave the money to her office and then went on leave. She also claimed she was unaware about the license being forged.

On Wednesday at the Dubai Court of First Instance, the Filipina was charged with forging a trade license and using an illegal license. She was also charged with forging a payment receipt, which she falsely attributed to a bogus transaction clearance office.

The trial has been adjourned till April 10.
