‘It wasn’t me’: Dubai police warn against bank fraud in Shaggy cover

  • The two-minute video was released on Facebook
  • The lyrics were changed to information on “dos and don’ts of keeping your identity and account secure at all times”

DUBAI: Dubai police changed the lyrics of Jamaican singer Shaggy’s 2000 hit “It Wasn’t Me,” and used it to warn residents against fraudsters.

The two-minute video, released on Facebook, showed a conservation between a fraud victim and a bank representative.

But instead of just talking, the two were singing to the tune of “It Wasn’t Me,” with informative lyrics detailing the “dos and don’ts of keeping your identity and account secure at all times.”

The video reiterates that banks would not ask for security information such as account number and password, and that only fraudsters would ask for such details.

Social media users quickly praised the video, which Dubai Police said was done in collaboration with UAE-based bank Emirates NBD.

Dancing queen? Theresa May boogies to Abba in final days as British PM

  • May, whose premiership was riven by crises over Brexit and who was cast as robotic by opponents, occasionally sought to bring some humor to the job
  • She last year danced with school children in South Africa and then grooved onto stage at the Conservative Party conference to “Dancing Queen”

LONDON: Theresa May boogied away one of her last weekends as British prime minister, showing off some of her famously awkward dance moves to Abba hits such as “Dancing Queen” and “Mamma Mia” at a festival.
In a video clip, she is shown dancing at the Henley Festival as her husband and other men in black tie swing their arms to the tunes.
May, whose premiership was riven by crises over Brexit and who was cast as robotic by opponents, occasionally sought to bring some humor to the job by performing dances in public.
She last year danced with school children in South Africa and then grooved onto stage at the Conservative Party conference to “Dancing Queen” — exhibiting a puzzling robotic hand movement that went viral on social media.
