As a leading financial institution in Kuwait and across the region, NBK frequently organizes various activities that contribute to raising awareness about all topics related to the banking and help in combating fraud and financial crime,” he mentioned.

“NBK uses all its digital channels to highlight different fraud types including fictitious investments whether in cash, commodities, virtual currencies or real estate. Additionally, it always warns customers against all fraud attempts via SMS, e-mail or phone calls by sharing messages on its social media platforms to warn customers against clicking unverified ads like those promising high gains, enticing individuals to register their personal information on fake trading platforms or accounts promising financial aids,” he explained.
