Australia: Pakistani woman scams an entire neighborhood of $5 million
Even the people closest to you can betray you. The Pakistani residents of Australia witnessed a real-life incident recently which has made them believe in this quote so much more.
A video went viral on social media calling out well-known Australian community member and owner of a posh clothing selection, Amina Muhammad, for scamming people. The video details an account of how the woman scammed 30 members of a community in the name of “committees”.
According to details, Amina Muhammad has conned people for approximately $5 million.
The Pakistani-Australian victims have now taken to social media to call out the scammer and beware other people to steer clear of any involvement in her committee schemes. Sharing her story on Facebook, a victim of the scam said:
Amina Muhammad was first a resident of Craigieburn, but later she moved to Glen, Waverly. And then it all began.
How did Amina Muhammad scam an entire neighborhood?
According to reports, Amina Muhammad befriended the Pakistani community of Glen, Waverly as soon as she moved to the area. She used to invite many Pakistani students to her luxurious home on various religious occasions for dinner and eventually became their older sister.
As time went on, she started inviting families to her home for religious gatherings and pitched them the committee idea. Since people had started trusting her, they decided to give Amina Muhammad their money for the committee.
However, they couldn’t believe themselves when Amina Muhammad fled after collecting money from the community residents. The woman looted the hard-earned money of many Pakistanis residing in Australia, including sole traders, business people, housewives, students, and more.
After losing millions of dollars, the Australian-Pakistani community has taken to Facebook to spread the word so the scammer woman cannot target any more people. These people also hope that social media will become their weapon in locating the run-away woman or attracting the attention of authorities so they can get their money back.
