KUWAIT CITY, Dec 11: Boursa Kuwait, the stock exchange, cautioned on Sunday traders and stakeholders against e-fraud, saying that there were attempts to impersonate the identities of stock market personnel. It revealed in a statement that some supposed bourse employees and top management were trying to make transactions online via fake Boursa Kuwait e-mails and social media accounts.
Traders and stakeholders should report e-fraud attempts to the competent authorities to track and arrest criminals behind such illicit acts, affirmed Boursa Kuwait’s statement, calling for avoiding any shady-looking transactions. Boursa Kuwait would not ask for online transactions, personal or financial information directly from shareholders, the statement affirmed.
