UAE Banks hit by ATM fraudsters

Multiple banks issues SMS messages and emails for UAE customers to change their PIN codes. Some banks even disabled international ATM cash withdrawal (which would suck if you’re on a holiday and need cash).

So, if you are living in the UAE; it never hurts to change your pin. Which is something you should do on a regular basis anyways.

    Hi Student,

    Of course, UAE banks never disclose these things how much got nicked. 🙂

    Hope it’s resolved already, or soon at least.

    Thank you,
    Michael
