Central Bank warns customers to protect credit information

Dubai: The Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) is reminding consumers of their responsibility to protect their credit information and credit/debit cards from fraud and unauthorised use.

The CBUAE also directed its consumers on Wednesday not to disclose their PIN to any persons or institutions. “If this information is disclosed somehow, it is the consumer’s responsibility to immediately contact their bank to freeze the card and change the PIN,” said CBUAE.

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