Fraud comes in different forms and it won’t stop without the cooperative community that lives with great awareness towards its various twisted methods. Disclosing any financial data opens the way for financial crimes and fraud and anything that causes damage to an individual and/or society.

Your silence always protects you; your data belongs to you. Keeping your secret numbers and personal information protects you from the misdeeds of fraud, no matter how tempting and convincing the promises are. You decided whether to be a victim or be aware and responsible for protecting your bank data.
