Expat Doctor In Saudi Was Caught With Fake Credentials

Forging school credentials or university degree is a crime, and expatriates in Saudi Arabia should not take this lightly. Over the years, there are some expatriates usually working in the field of engineering who were discovered to have fake credentials and they were deported. 
If you are wondering what could possibly happen to you if you will work in Saudi under fake or forged credentials, learn from the experience of this expatriate: 

 An expatriate working in a dispensary in Jeddah was sentenced to one year and five months in prison, SR 5,000 fine and deportation after he was proven guilty of forging a Ph.D degree in medicine. 
According to the local news, he was able to work for 7 months practicing his degree. When he brought his credentials for attestation, the Foreign Ministry discovered it was fake. He was then handed to the police.

The source said that the expatriate came in the Kingdom with his mother to perform Umrah. He was able to secure a job offer later and was given a permanent residence permit to  work as an accountant. He later realized that his salary as an accountant is not enough to cover the needs of his family back in his home country. Since he has one year background studying medicine in his country,  he decided to contact a forger back home so he can have credentials for a Ph.D Degree in Internal Medicine. He paid the forger SR 2,000. 

With his fake credentials he was able to secure a job and exercise the profession and was paid well as a doctor.  But when the dispensary asked him to submit his credentials for authentication by the Foreign Ministry, they found out it was fake.
