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.
