THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT TO EVERYONE AWARE OF THE “GO FUND SAMYA CANCER CASE”. PLEASE SHARE THIS MESSAGE IMMEDIATELY AND MAKE IT VIRAL SO NO ONE ELSE IS SCAMMED BY SAMYA ABDUL HAFEEZ (AKA SAMYA NAWAL ON FACEBOOK) AND HER NETWORK OF ACCOMPLICES.

This is to bring to your urgent notice a suspected case of online theft, fraud and criminal conspiracy being committed by an indian national Samiya Abdul Hafeez, passport number: P3787282, mobile number: +966572735206/ +917893643460 based in Riyadh, and her accomplices including her mother and possibly other members of her family and friends.

the amount estimated to have been raised fraudulently is between INR 25-30 lakhs or much more, and has been transferred by various donors to the persons said bank  account in India:

Name: Samya Abdul Hafiz

Account no.: 62179552286

IFSCI code: SBHY0020066

Bank: State bank of Hydrabad

Branch Code: 20066

Bank area: Gunfoundary

The above mentioned amount was raised through various online platforms including Facebook and crowdfunding websites such as http://www.launchgood.com , http://www.gogetfunding.com , http://www.generosity.com , etc. based on an elaborate story claiming Samiya is a cancer patient sufferring from brain and breast cancers and is unable to cover her treatment andliving expenses due to her father suffering from oral cancer and the family having no financial means. When suspicions as to the authenticity of her claims were publicly raised online in January 2017, an official inquiry was conducted. Substantial Amount of evidence and statements by involved individuals and donors regarding the fraudulent nature of Samiya’s claim have been collected. As per the findings of this inquiry, this suspected scam has been active since early 2016 to date, during which large sums of money were raised by the Indian community in Saudi Arabia, including from the Indian International School Riyadh where Samiya studied, and transferred to Samiya’s account in India. Samiya was last seen by multiple eyewitnesses purchasing jewelry and being serviced at a beauty parlor in Hara, Riyadh on January 31st 2017 in perfect health, while claiming online that she was in a coma in January 2017 and sufferring from a relapse of cancer, memory loss, and reopening of her previous brain surgery wounds.

It has been found by the inquiry that not a single authentic cancer- related medical report or hospital bill or even proof of Samiya’s admission in hospital as a cancer patient has been provided. In Fact, thoroughly verified,multiple statements made by her and her accomplices related to her date of birth, current age, age at the time of first surgery, location, current state of health, fathers iqama status, etc., have been found to be completely false and fabricated. Also, all elements related to the identity and Facebook account of Bushra Abdul Sattar (a person claiming to be Samya’s cousin managing the fundraising process) were analysed and found to a false identity created and operated by Samiya herself and her accomplices for the sake of fraudulently collecting money. Multiple ‘proofs’ provided by her such as hospital scams, letters by companies willing to sponsor her treatment, pictures of operation scars, etc. were extracted from the accounts of the above mentioned people in private messages with various donors as well as from the Facebook fund-raising group and were found to be fraudulent and fabricated.

The only single piece of reliable evidence provided on the fundraising group was a video of Dr. Vamsy of Omega Hospital in Hydrabad wherein the doctor is being interviewed by Samya and he explains the cancer she is suffering from. However, in the video, the doctor and Samiya both clearly mention that her age is 19 years, which means the video was made in 2012 (and not in 2016 as Samiya claims in her appeals online) as Samiya’s date of birth on her passport is 22/01/1993. Samiya provided a “report” on the new Facebook fund raising group dated 10/2/2012 proving that Samiya could have had cancer 5 years ago for which she has already been treated but is using as a means to exploit people and collect money fraudulently. It is also highly possible that this is the report of another genuine individual who sufferred from cancer in 2012 and is being used by this network of criminals to fraudulently collect money, especially because Samiya has absolutely no physical signs of having suffered from cancer as verified by multiple medical doctors and cancer survivors following her case online.

Please go Through the evidence provided in the pictures in detail. If you have been a donor to this cause or are aware of anyone who has donated, you are urged to kindly file a complaint at the nearest police station in Riyadh or Hydrabad or anywhere in india immediately so this criminal and her network are put behind bars as soon as possible and people’s money is returned to them.
