UAE authority issues new warning for smartphone users

Dubai: The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) in the UAE issued an advisory for Apple iPhone users.  TDRA warned UAE residents to be cautious of scam messages.  TDRA shared a video on its social media handle.

In the video, a man can be seen receiving a message on his iMessenger app telling him he has won a large prize. The man then opens a link that gives him the chance to “win” up to $100,000 if he deposits $5,000. He clicks a button to do so, which drains his bank account.
