Dubai Police just released a hilarious parody song about phone scammers
Many UAE residents can relate to those annoying phone scammers that try to get your details and now Dubai Police have released a hilarious video in partnership with Emirates NBD that we can totally relate to. The video that was shared on Twitter included a funny and definitely catchy parody song of Shaggy's "It Wasn't Me" as part of their campaign against phone scammers across the UAE. The two minute video tells the story of a man who has been scammed by fraudsters pretending to be from a bank asking for his account. He then calls the rapping bank manager who even adopts Shaggy's Jamaican accent, repeating 'it wasn't me'.
The collaboration was trying to send a message that keeping your identity and account secure at all times to prevent being tricked is extremely important. The video also lists the do's and dont's in the catchy tune that we can't get out of our heads!
The groovy music video ends on a powerful note saying: "A bank will never ask for your mobile banking password, 3-Digit security code, authentication code or smart pass PIN, a fraudster will."
Hats off to Dubai Police and Emirates NBD.
