“Fraudulent ATM operations are carried out through several methods including implanting a hidden device in the machine, which allows fraudsters to steal personal information stored on debit/credit cards and access funds in the account,” said the tweet from the UAE Banks Federation.

Residents can contact the bank responsible for the ATM terminal they last transacted in and should retrieve a receipt to keep a record of their transaction.
