If you are sick I can send a Muslim jinn to cure you for a fee
A number of Saudi nationals suffering from physical and mental problems have fallen victim to an unknown man whom lives in Egypt and claims he can cure them by sending over a ‘Muslim jinn’ [genie] to address their health issues.
The Egyptian’s agent in Saudi Arabia arranges a phone call, understandably, to identify the exact nature of their medical emergency, and too, establish which jinn to dispatch in order to properly address the problem.
“People who spoke to the man in that country were asked to transfer a specific sum of money to his account so he can send them a Muslim jinn,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sabq said in a published report.
Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police, discovered the scam when they arrested the man’s aide in the city of Onaiza.
