Makkah Police Arrest Two For Fake Hajj Campaign On Social Media

Hera Shabbir

Makkah Police have arrested two Egyptian residents for running a fake Hajj campaign on social media.

The scam promised accommodation, transportation, and sacrifices for pilgrims.

The suspects have been caught, legal action has been taken, and they’ve been referred to the Public Prosecution. The Directorate of Public Security is asking everyone to stay alert and avoid suspicious online ads. These ads might offer services like performing Hajj for others, providing sacrifices, selling Hajj bracelets, or transportation, but they often come from fake entities looking to deceive people.

Authorities warn that anyone caught in such scams will face legal penalties

To have a safe and legitimate Hajj experience, follow the official Hajj rules and instructions. If you suspect any violations, report them by calling 911 in Makkah, Riyadh, and the Eastern Province, or 999 in other regions of Saudi Arabia.
