NBK Hosts Electronic Fraud and Prevention Awareness Session

by Madaline Dunn

The National Bank of Kuwait’s (NBK) Digital Communication team recently held an awareness session for employees on the latest forms of electronic fraud, providing guidance on how to avoid falling prey to such scams.

This is part of its continued participation in the “Let’s Be Aware” campaign introduced by the Central Bank of Kuwait, in cooperation with the Kuwait Banking Association (KBA), aimed at promoting financial literacy.

Commenting on this, Abdul-Mohsen Al-Rushaid, AGM, Head of Digital Communications at the National Bank of Kuwait, said that such awareness campaigns help to foster a fraud-resilient environment.

“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 [banking] and help in combating fraud and financial crime,” he added.

According to Al-Rushaid, NBK aims to expand its efforts in spreading banking and financial awareness among all sectors of society by familiarising them with the latest forms of electronic fraud and highlighting how crucial cybersecurity is.

“NBK uses all its digital channels to highlight different fraud types including fictitious investments whether in cash, commodities, virtual currencies or real estate,” he explained.

“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,” added Al-Rushaid.
