UAE alerts card holders of the risks

The Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) has reminded consumers of their responsibility to protect their credit information and credit/debit cards from fraud and unauthorized use.

CBUAE also directs consumers not to disclose their PIN to any persons or institution. If somehow this information is disclosed, it is the consumer’s responsibility to immediately contact their bank to freeze the card and change the PIN.

CBUAE advised consumers to take caution when using their cards and ATM machines in order to avoid any leakage of information that may expose their accounts to possible fraud.
