Central bank warns of new phone scam

The police issued a warning on Monday about phone scammers seeking to collect people’s bank account details.

The central bank told the police phone scammers are pretending to work for the bank, and telling individuals that their accounts will be frozen if they do not hand over details of their accounts.

In some cases, the central bank said, phone screens show the call is coming from the ‘Central Bank’, while in other cases phones are showing the call to be coming from a foreign number.

Police are continuing their investigations to find the perpetrators of this scam.
