KUWAIT, Secretary General of the Union of Kuwaiti Banks Dr. Hamad Al-Hasawi announced the Ramadan working hours for all local banks’ employees will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The banks will receive customers from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. during the month of Ramadan, in line with a circular released by the Central Bank of Kuwait, said Al-Hasawi on Tuesday.

In another context, Al-Hasawi urged banks’ customers to take extra precaution while responding to calls by scammers requesting their accounts’ numbers or secret numbers at pretext of winning raffles.

He added that local banks should avoid under any circumstance to ask the customer to provide any secure bank account information over the phone. Al-Hasawi pointed out the unions’ duty to protect customers’ interest and funds, urging the banks and customers to adhere to what he mentioned along with any warning messages banks release online and through social media to prevent more victims of these scams.
