While we are actively taking extra measures to ensure your safety, we strongly advise you to stay vigilant and be aware of scams and fraudulent websites. These pages and websites often claim to have special sales or giveaways to lure you into a trap where you share your personal information with them. 

Always be alert and make sure you take extra steps to protect yourself from these scammers. You can check to see if a specific bank account number or phone number is authentic or a scam by visiting any of the channels below. 

 

1. Verify scams via the CCID website

 

The CCID, short for Commercial Crimes Investigation Department, is our national department that investigates and deals with any white-collar crime issue within our country.
