KUWAIT CITY, Nov 18: Despite the warning issued by the Ministry of Interior regarding fraudulent activities carried out by individuals from outside Kuwait, posing as security personnel or bank representatives through phone calls and electronic communication platforms, an expatriate fell prey to such deceptive operations that target unsuspecting victims, reports Al-Anba daily.

A complaint filed by the expatriate at the Farwaniya police station shows the man was robbed of three thousand dinars. He said the caller claimed he was a bank employee and requested a copy of his bank card and civil ID. Subsequently, the victim received multiple messages indicating withdrawals totaling 3 thousand dinars in a short span of time.

Upon contacting the bank, it was verified that they do not have employees soliciting customers for such information. The expatriate had, indeed, become a victim of a scam orchestrated by external criminal networks. A case has been recorded with the relevant authorities for further investigation.
