Bank of Maldives (BML) has released a statement urging vigilance, stating that a number of customers continue to receive phone calls from parties impersonating the bank. Customers are often asked to provide their account or card information and are requested to transfer funds to another account due to system issues.
BML states that it will never call customers and request for personal information, and will never ask customers to transfer funds to another account in any circumstance. The bank will also never contact customers from a mobile number.
BML advises its customers to stay vigilant at all times and not respond to these calls. Never share your personal or account details with anyone. If a customer has received a call from someone claiming to be BML or if card details may have been compromised, please contact the bank at 3330200.
