Scam alert: Fraudsters mimic UAE government websites


Watch out for online scammers claiming to represent UAE government agencies.

That’s the message from Abu Dhabi Police who are warning residents about clicking on links that take you to fake portals that replicate official websites.

They say these copycat sites display messages asking users to pay a fine for accessing inappropriate content and also threaten to lock your computer.

Officials are urging the public to report such cases, and not to share personal details or financial information with unknown sources.
