Caution: 

Email and social media fraud

HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his advisers are currently the targets of fraudulent emails which make false personal and professional claims against them.  These emails generally are sent through proxy servers to avoid tracing. They attach or refer to forged documents, and the same messages are often copied verbatim and sent from several different email accounts, purportedly by different senders.  Excerpts from these emails also have been referred to in videos hosted by a user-generated content website and by comments on an online news and social networking service. The contents of these emails and videos are entirely false and inaccurate.

 

When you receive an email from an unofficial source:

  • Do not click on any link
  • Do not reply to the email or contact the sender
  • If you have already clicked on a link inside the email, do not enter any information on the webpage to which the link directs you
  • Do not open any attached file

If you wish to authenticate any digital communication purporting to be sent by or on behalf of HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Kingdom Holding Company and/or Alwaleed Philanthopies, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
