The campaign also seeks to empower individuals with the necessary knowledge, and to shed light on the new and recently spread methods, according to what was monitored by the relevant authorities. The Banking Media and Awareness Committee in Saudi banks indicated that the communication strategy in the “#Be_Careful” campaign aims to encourage community members to participate in the awareness mission through their interaction with the campaign’s outputs, and to contribute to disseminating awareness advice on ways to avoid financial fraud through various channels.
