Ajman: Fraud on behalf of the Central Bank of the UAE. The fraudsters sent the message from a WhatsApp number with a profile picture of the government logo using the name of the UAE Central Bank. The above message is sent to the Central Bank letter in a way that is likely to be misunderstood by the general public. This message contains the name and signature of the bank’s director.
The group sends messages to those who promise to help prevent bank transactions from being disrupted. The group is sending a message on WhatsApp that ATMs, debit cards and credit cards associated with the bank may be frozen for security reasons, and that all details should be checked, otherwise bank accounts will be permanently blocked. To avoid this, the message ends with a suggestion to contact this mobile number.
Systems, including police, have repeatedly warned people not to disclose personal information about the bank over the phone or in any other way. These incidents have been reported in the past but the group is working with the intention of blocking some people who are still unnoticed. The gang regularly extorts money from callers without realizing that this is a fake message and a group of fraud.
