Saudis targeted in a new wave of financial scams

RIYADH: Convincing-looking fraudulent messages and misleading online adverts are rife in the digital world, so it is not surprising that some Saudi residents continue to fall for scams that attempt to trick unsuspecting victims.

In some cases the con artists warn that savings are at risk, in others they offer easy ways to make lots of money.
