The bank further highlighted that those making the calls speak in a very convincing manner, hence urging customers not to go through with payments prior to receiving products on any orders that do not seem legitimate. 

Additionally, BML advised not to attend to unknown callers asking for money or to share personal information such as bank account details, internet bank details and card details. 

BML has issued warnings to customers on various occasions and stressed the fact that the bank would not on any circumstance contact customers through mobile phone numbers asking for personal details.
