Hajj fraud victim: Hotel on rip-off tour ‘unfit for humans’

Special to Al Arabiya English, London Saturday, 10 September 2016

Squalid, dirt-encrusted sinks, a rickety AC unit with exposed wires and a filthy hole in the ground that doubled as a toilet: This is what greeted one Brit as he embarked on the annual hajj pilgrimage.

Ahmed Ali Minhas should have been setting out on the religious experience of a lifetime when in 2015 he left his home in Coventry in the UK bound for Makkah, Saudi Arabia. But the journey itself ended up being more like a nightmare.

Minhas, 64, became a victim of hajj fraud, joining a sizeable – and, some say, growing – number of Muslims suffering at the hands of dodgy travel agents or bogus tour operators.

Major scams typically involve the sale of non-existent packages or travel agents delivering substandard accommodation, and there are reports of many other minor infringements by travel operators.

Up to 25,000 British Muslims are reported to travel for hajj each year, spending a total of £125 million ($167m) on pilgrimages – all of which means there are rich pickings to be had for fraudsters.

It is not a problem confined to one country: There have been reports of hajj fraud cases effecting pilgrims from as far afield as Indonesia and Nigeria – although the true global extent of the problem is not known.

Minhas told his own story, amid claims by one UK-based group that hajj fraud has become a “global phenomenon” in need of a “zero tolerance policy.”

Action Fraud warns of Hajj fraud, as criminals target Muslims booking trips to Mecca

 

Up to 25,000 British Muslims will be booking trips to Mecca over the coming months to perform Hajj in the autumn.

As Hajj approaches, a number of individuals who have paid for a tour package for themselves and their family will discover their dreams have been shattered by fraudsters.

Some could arrive in Saudi Arabia to find the accommodation they booked does not exist. Others may realise that their whole trip is in fact a scam set up by illegitimate travel operators who have disappeared with thousands of pounds of their money.

Between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2017 there were 17 reports of Hajj related fraud made to Action Fraud, marking a 143% increase on the previous year’s reporting figures. Hotspots for recorded offending were London, the West Midlands and Manchester.

Reports show that victims can lose anything from £1000 to £33,000 and between 2013 and 2017, the crimes had a total reported value of £988,743. The average age of a Hajj fraud victim is 42.

Law enforcement and figures within the Muslim community remain convinced that these numbers represent just the tip of the iceberg, with many victims feeling too embarrassed, ashamed or frightened to report what has happened to them.

Over the coming months, the City of London Police will be working with Birmingham Trading Standards to carry out visits and checks on relevant travel agents. More work will be done to help educate officers on how to help victims of Hajj fraud and to ensure correct reporting.
