Mohamed El-Etreby, Chairman of Banque Misr, said that stopping the electronic transfers service from accounts to the Meeza card will be temporary without stopping the rest of the card services after there was a gang of robbery on the balances of some customers due to sharing their data with others.
In a statement issued yesterday, Banque Misr had warned its customers of fraud and fraud operations that they might be exposed to in the event of sharing their personal data with others, after the fraud case against a Samalout branch client and others after sharing their confidential data.
Al-Etrebi added to Masrawy that the bank’s suspension of transfer services to the advantage card is due to the difficulty of tracking the funds transferred electronically to it from the accounts after it was exploited by fraudsters on some customer balances.
He said that the card is a feature where there is no problem, but the transfer of funds from an account to an account is easy to monitor, but the transfer from an account to a card is a feature that is difficult to track.
Banks issue a prepaid benefit card to customers without the need to open a bank account with the bank.
Al-Etrebi suggested that there was a gang formation behind the fraud operations against bank customers by obtaining their secret number by deceit. He expected the formation to be arrested within days by the efforts of the security services.
Al-Etribi said that 13 fraud cases were committed against customers during the last period, with amounts exceeding 2 million and 700 thousand pounds.
The head of Banque Misr called on citizens not to give their data to anyone, even if the customer service employee in the banks, and the number that the customer receives from the bank is confidential and specific to the customer only.
He pointed out that customers’ money is safe and banks will remedy these facts, but citizens should be careful and not make mistakes in the future.
