Electronic fraud gangs are taking opportunity in the holy month to lure and trap more victims, robbing their bank accounts and looting their assets, reports Al-Qabas daily. With the advent of the holy month of Ramadan, and the increasing desire of people to do good, by donating to the needy, this has increased in recent times.

The most recent way for these swindlers to defraud customers was to display advertisements for the provision of maids for the needy during the month of Ramadan for 5 hours per day at 80 dinars.

According to the head of the Kuwaiti Society for Information Security, Dr. Safaa Zaman, the “month of goodness” was not spared from fraud and electronic fraud gangs, as fraud attempts spread with its advent by sending incorrect links to fake charities, or links to donate fasting meals and committees outside Kuwait, all of which are not correct, as confirmed by the association.

Zaman confirmed that there are more than 200 cases of electronic fraud that occur daily in Kuwait, and usually only between 60 and 80 cases of exposure to electronic fraud are officially reported. She pointed out that the main reason behind the spread of the phenomenon in Kuwait is due to weak legislation, and the spread of data sales without any deterrent punishment for those who do so.
