    40-Man Phone Scam Gang Caught By Dubai Police

    The Dubai Police department has apprehended 40 individuals who called people over their phones and posed as employees belonging to a telecommunication company, deceiving them into thinking that they have won prizes worth around Dh 200,000 and convincing them to transfer Dh 2,000 via a money transfer to claim their rewards.

    The police department arrested the men who were behind the con, whom were hidden in two flats that they had rented in Farreej Al Murar area in Dubai.

    Colonel Omer bin Hamad, the deputy director of anti-economic crime of the Dubai Police had stated that the department had received a tip regarding a large number of Asians that were visiting two flats at a routine time.

    The police kept a vigilant eye on the flats for a couple of days and discovered that a group of men had frequented the flat from 9 am to 12 pm, followed by another 3-hour shift from 3 pm to 6 pm. After obtaining a warrant and sufficient legal documentation that allowed the police department to check the flats out, the Dubai Police went in for the arrest.

    The Dubai Police department had found that the suspects had been calling people at random and posing as employees from a well-known telecommunication company and deceiving them into believing that they had won a prize and that all they had to do to redeem it, is to transfer Dh 2,000 via a money exchange office in Dubai.

    Colonel Omer had stated that 90 phones were confiscated from the conmen and that 110 lines with different phone numbers were being used. He also stated that the police secured Dh 60,000.

    The conmen used a software program to locate vulnerable people. The police arrested the conmen and found out that the most of the suspects were on a visiting visa and that some could even speak Arabic. The suspects were referred to the Dubai public prosecution.

    Pregnant Woman Sits Next To Tiger, Who’s Reaction When He Notices Her Baby Bump Has Gone Viral

    Animals are smart creatures and sometimes they can sense things just like humans can. This story proves just how true this statement is.

    Brittany Smith-Osborne was visiting the Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend, Indiana with a group of friends when she found this out for herself.

    Among her group of friends was a woman by the name of Natasha who was 27-weeks along in her pregnancy.

    They were all curious as to why the tiger seemed to be paying so much attention to Natasha. All of the ladies were cooing and “aww-ing” at the sight as Natasha was taking selfies with the tiger who was behind some glass.

    I don’t know whether to laugh or be scared,” said one of the girls who was off camera. “That is so crazy.”

    “I want to pet him,” said another.

    This is exactly when one of the girls appeared to catch on to why the tiger was so curious about Natasha.

    One of the girls asked: “Do you think it knows your pregnant?” “Do you think it’s after you because you’re with a baby?”

    Natasha then decided to find out if this hypothesis was true, so she stood up on a ledge and pressed her baby bump against the glass toward the tiger.


    Turns out the tiger was very interested in her baby.

    The huge cat started sniffing around her baby then began nuzzling up against the glass where her baby bump was before walking off.

    “Awwwwwwww,” Natasha said.

    The girls got to prove what a truly remarkable creature the tiger was and how keen his or her senses are.

    We all realized that the tiger was very interested in her baby bump,” Smith-Osborne, who captured the entire encounter on video, said to FOX 26.

    The video has ended up going viral and the zoo also shared it on Facebook saying, “This is why the zoo is here – to help make connections to nature.”“I am so excited that I was able to capture that sweet moment,” Smith-Osborne said.


    The video was shared over 5 million times on Break Clips’ YouTube channel.

    Some viewers on YouTube argued that Natasha would have ended up as a nice meal for the tiger if the glass wasn’t there. Others, however, were completely convinced that the tiger was just interested in her baby bump.

    14-Year-Old Model Dies After Working In Gruelling 12-Hour Fashion Show

    A 14-year-old Russian model has died after a grueling 12-hour fashion show in China.

    Vlada Dzyuba reportedly collapsed just before walking out onto the catwalk in Shanghai, The Siberian Times reported.

    The teen was found to be suffering from chronic meningitis “compounded by severe exhaustion” and remained in a coma for two days before she passed away.

    Vlada reportedly collapsed after her temperature soared while she was waiting for her next appearance.

    It is believed that the young model was too ‘scared’ to ask for medical help and was working well over her contract of a maximum three hours a week.

    It is alleged that the 14-year-old was unable to be taken to hospital for treatment because she did not have medical insurance, despite being on a three-month contract with a prominent Chinese modeling agency.

    It is unclear who is to blame for her not having medical insurance.

    The recruitment of young female models in China is on the rise, often between 14 and 16,  from Russia and especially Siberia to work at catwalk shows.

    The topic was uncovered in a documentary Extreme Model Factory by presenter Reggie Yates in his 2015 Extreme Russia series.

    Vlada’s mother was not able to reach her daughter before she died, and she told the television programme NTV: “She was calling me, saying ‘Mama, I am so tired. I so much want to sleep.”

    “I didn’t sleep myself and was calling her constantly, begging her to go to hospital,” she added.

    Vlada’s family has contacted the Russian state to ask for help finding answers.

    Video Showing Man Refusing To Sell Portrait Of Sheikh Zayed Goes Viral

    A carpet dealer is holding onto a black and white portrait that he says has been in his shop since 1994 and has refused to sell the photo – even for Dh 100,000.  The Afhgani carpet seller who had refused to sell a portrait of Sheikh Zayed has gone viral on social media, where the clip shows the man refusing to budge on selling the picture of Sheikh Zayed to an Emirati man who took the video.

    This is Baba Zayed. This picture is not for sale”, the Afghani carpet seller kept repeating as the man persistently tried to get the man to sell him the portrait.

    Gulf News approached Musa Khan, the Afghani carpet seller where he talked about the portrait and how it has been on the door of his shop in Mina Zayed market in Abu Dhabi for 24 years.

    Abdul Khader, his father, had started the carpet business in Abu Dhabi 40 years ago and his partner had bought 10 pictures of Sheikh Zayed back in 1980, where some were kept in the partner’s shop in Al Ain and the rest in Abu Dhabi.

    The black and white picture has been in the shop ever since it was first established by the order of Sheikh Zayed back in 1994. He claimed that Sheikh Zayed had visited the market and used to buy carpets from his shop. He explains how customers are usually curious about the portrait and how some even ask to buy it, he explains how it is unacceptable to sell the portrait for any price by anyone, stating that their love for the late Sheikh Zayed is priceless.


    Musa Khan had stated that he offered Friday prayers at SheikhZayed Mosque because of his love for him and declared that he would not sell the portrait even for a million dirhams.
