Scammers in the UAE are back at it again–scamming people online!

Reddit user u/TerraDiPunt shared a screenshot from ‘Central Bank of the UAE’ using a ‘mobile number’ over WhatsApp informing him that his bank account was frozen due to ‘some security reasons.’

The scammer urged him to contact the provided mobile number ‘otherwise your account will be suspended (sic) permanently.’

I received this through WhatsApp, scammers are getting desperate, not even a landline number ? from r/dubai

“Dear! All Bank Users Must Verify Your Account. Otherwise, Your Account Will Be Closed And No Bank Branch will be Not Responsible,” the fake statement read.

The ‘legal notification’ has an Arabic version as well in the right side.

“I received this through WhatsApp, scammers are getting desperate, not even a landline number,” the Reddit user said.

UAE banks don’t inform their customers on WhatsApp nor use mobile number to contact or verify their information.
