Anti- Cybercrime Unit warned against dealing with fake companies claiming to provide loans through sponsored advertisements on social media sites.

The representative of the Cybercrime Unit explained, during a  phone call on Public Security Radio, that some people send a copy of their civil status ID or other documents (such as an ATM card) to unauthorized parties under the pretext of providing remote work opportunities or to obtain quick personal financing.

the mechanism of operation of these companies is based on fraud by attracting the victim, claiming to submit offers, and then obtaining a copy of that person’s personal ID, which is not supposed to be sent to any party, indicating  that these companies use the copy of the victim’s civil status ID to open an account with them, or register a wallet to receive money illegally.
