The men arranged private transportation and lured Hajj pilgrims to use the vehicles in an illegal way to travel to Makkah. They also managed to obtain money in advance from the pilgrims.

Riyadh police arrested an Egyptian resident who was operating an unlicensed office in one of the neighborhoods in the city to promote fake Hajj campaigns.

Legal procedures were initiated against the eight men, who were then handed over to the Public Prosecution, according to the police sources.
