Police say they discovered a hidden online fraud network that was committing crimes outside the UAE, including money-laundering, cyber fraud, hacking, criminal impersonation, banking fraud and identity theft.

The group is accused of hacking corporate emails and cloning websites to redirect payments to their own accounts.

The Dubai police has not yet said when they would be charged.
