Muscat: Marking the annual International Fraud Awareness Week, the National Bank of Oman (NBO) in collaboration with The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) joined global efforts to raise awareness over minimising the impact of fraud by promoting anti-fraud awareness and education.
The bank conducted an employee workshop, which saw participants discuss banking fraud and its many shapes and forms, prevention measures and related customer service best practices.

Moreover, we always aim to further improve our communication with our customers to protect their personal information and banking transactions. It is our responsibility to safeguard our customers’ personal information and provide them with safe and secure banking services.
