Salik, Dubai’s toll gate operator, issued a warning to UAE residents about an SMS scam asking them to pay fees.

Residents have reported receiving text messages, purportedly from Salik, asking them to pay “vehicle trip fee”. The link then leads to a phishing website.

The toll gate operator warned UAE residents that the messages are fake, and that Salik users should “not to share personal or banking information with unreliable parties in order to avoid fraudulent activity.”

Salik payments are done through the Salik app or by loading credit via Salik recharge cards that can be bought at petrol stations and convenience stores across Dubai. ICA/Expat Media
