RIYADH - The Pakistani community residing in Saudi Arabia has been warned of an ongoing scam which can deprive them of their hard-earned money.

Pakistan's embassy in Saudi Arabia has warned against sharing private information over phone calls. In a social media post on Wednesday, the embassy warned that by sharing private information, one can face financial loss.

'A well organized gang is behind those calls which have nothing to do with interior ministry,' the embassy clarified.

The scams over phone calls are becoming rampant with each passing day. Irrespective of location, incidents have been reported wherein people who shared their private information like account number, ATM pin were deprived of their money through highly sophisticated techniques.

With the advent of online banking and digitalization, the scammers have been taking advantage of the innocence of the people; however, authorities warn against sharing any kind of information to unauthorized officials.
