Have fun, be safe
Bank Windhoek's head of corporate social responsibility and sponsorship, Bronwyn Moody, encouraged holidaymakers to participate in these events. She also advised them to be vigilant of fraudsters at the same time.
“As we celebrate the festive season, we request all Namibians to be vigilant, as this is the best way to fight fraud," she said. “Remember, never share your personal banking information such as your PIN with anyone, not even a bank official or security guards at ATMs.”
