KUWAIT CITY, June 30: Thirteen Iranians have filed complaints with the Central Bank of Kuwait on behalf of a number of their compatriots accusing the company which is situated in Fahaheel of receiving 2 million dinars to transfer the amount to their families but has failed to remit the money, reports Al-Anba daily.
The complainants said hundreds of the customers have been cheated by the company. The sources added the case has been referred to the Money Prosecution and the case is expected to be handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department.
According to a reliable source, the Central Bank said the company has admitted to receiving the money but was unable to transfer the money due the sanctions that have been imposed on Iran.
However, the customers were shocked to find the doors of the company closed. It is noteworthy to mention a money exchange firm in Hawalli was accused of committing a similar offense which had received money in thousands of dinars from Egyptians and had closed its doors without transferring the money.
