Scammers exploits peak during festive season

Ina Muir, Forensic Auditor at Bank Windhoek. As the holiday season approaches, Bank Windhoek this week issued another warning to their clients and the general public to be vigilant and prevent financial fraud, which is normally rampant during the festive season.
Financial fraud includes, amongst others, phishing, ATM fraud, card fraud and identity fraud.
One of the common types of fraud is phishing, a process by which a crook obtains another individual’s private information through devious means in order to fraudulently assume the victim’s identity and ultimately gain control over his or her bank account.
