DUBAI – Beware of scammers who send out fake official government letters asking for money or bank account details, a UAE ministry warned.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (Mofaic) said scammers have used the ministry’s name and stamp to send out fake letters and emails.
“Do not be misled by official-looking stamps or names in letter or emails”, the ministry said.
It stressed that it will never ask for payment, money transfer or bank account details.
The ministry reminded the public that it “never communicates with the public directly except through official channels”.
