Next time you see unusually high prices at the pump, check to make sure you are getting all the gas you paid for.
Two Arab gas station owners, Nabil Dawood and Samir Dawood, were charged with ripping off customers, rigging the pumps at their station to deliver less than what was paid for–by about 5% of each gas sale.
In the 1980s, Arab gas stations in Michigan engaged in the same kind of fraud for terrorist Abu Nidal. The money that was skimmed went to finance terrorist acts and homicide bombings against Israelis in the first Palestinian intifada (uprising).
