KUWAIT CITY, April 22: An unidentified Iranian woman was robbed off her money after the suspect at the other end of the phone succeeded in convincing her that she had won a prize money and got her bank and ATM card details.
Although several times it has been reported in newspapers and all media channels warning expatriates and Kuwaitis not to fall prey to those who impersonate bank employees and ask for their bank accounts numbers and pertaining details, the victim allegedly did just that and ended up losing the money.
