In November 2018, Ikram Karimov (name changed) visited the “Dehkan market” in the city of Yangiyer. There he met the entrepreneur Yo. Khojamov. He introduced himself as “Alisher, an employee of the Syrdarya regional department of prosecutor’s office” and promised to “support” the entrepreneur in the future, the chairman of the Khovos district criminal court in the Syrdarya region O. Nabiyev writes in the publication “Postda”.
Then he said that he was short of money (3,500,000 soums). He borrowed this amount promising to pay back soon.
Additionally, Ikram met with a resident of Samarkand K. Murodov, whom he had never met before, on December 3 last year on the Rudaki Street in Samarkand. The pseudo-prosecutor promised him that he would help him buy a Gentra car, which is confiscated in favor of the State, at lower price through the auction. To make his actions more reliable, he got Murodov’s civil passport. At the same time, he received 18,252,800 soums from the “victim” ($2,200) to register the car under his name.
On January 16, 2019, the fraudster called his acquaintance Akhmad Murodov and introduced himself as Yodgor, an employee of the Tashkent city prosecutor’s office. He said he would help him to get his son out of prison by appealing to the Supreme Court. Three days later, the impostor met him at the “Oltin baliq” (“Golden fish”) café and asked for $2,000 for his “service”. A. Murodov informed the Syrdarya regional prosecutor’s office and officers of the regional department about the case. Thus, the fraudster was detained during the operative event.
Reportedly, he was sentenced to nine years in prison for committing fraudulent acts.
