ACLEDA Bank, commercial bank in Cambodia, has announced to its customers and the general public that the bank has never had and does not currently have a lucky draw or prize event programme in market.
The announcement came after numerous people were contacted by phone, purportedly by the bank, and informed that they had been randomly selected as prize winners.
ACLEDA Bank has observed scams targeting people through phone calls or social media in the past asking them to send money to claim fake prizes. ACLEDA’s Executive Vice-President and Group Chief Financial Officer Mar Amara stated that the bank always informs the public and its customers to protect them when this occurs and has taken legal action.
“In case of doubt, people should contact the nearest bank office or contact our Call Centre (24/7) via phone number: 023 994 444 or 015 999 233,” said the bank.
