Perpetrators employed tactics such as posing as individuals requiring or offering assistance, as well as impersonating official institutions to deceive victims into divulging their banking information, Hala News reported.

Impersonating bank employees and soliciting data updates is particularly hazardous. The directorate emphasizes that banks never request personal data updates over the phone.

To avoid falling prey to these schemes, the public is urged to enhance their digital awareness, exercise caution when encountering unfamiliar or unknown entities, and promptly report any suspicious activities through phone messages, social media channels, or by contacting the authorities directly.
