Bahrain’s Director-General of Anti-corruption and Economic and Electronic Security announced on Monday the arrest of 10 expatriates from Asia for their involvement in fraud cases.




The accused used to call their victims, take details of their bank accounts and transfer the money outside Bahrain.

The department will continue coordination through the International Affairs and Interpol Directorate to arrest the remaining wanted individuals abroad, Bahrain News Agency reported.

The director-general said that immediate investigations were launched after receiving the notifications and the suspects were identified and arrested through coordination with the relevant authorities.

He warned the public from providing bank details to anyone, pointing out that banks do not ask for such information by phone or any other means.

The director-general added that in case of being subject to any fraud, the bank should be contacted immediately to stop the account and the case should be reported to the Directorate of Anti-corruption and Economic and Electronic Security by calling the hotline 992 to take the necessary legal procedures.
