KARACHI, November 26, 2018: BankIslami on Monday announced that its payment system has been successfully restored and running absolutely secured.
The card data of BankIslami was hacked by international hackers and some PKR 2.1 million were withdrawn in different countries by using this data.
The management of the bank said that all of the Bank’s services can now be accessed and operated as usual including other banks’ ATMs, Internet banking and Mobile App. Thus, our customers can now access all other banks’ ATMs for Cash Withdrawal and BankIslami’s nationwide ATM network for Funds Transfer (including IBFT), Utility and other Bill payments. Cash withdrawal via Biometric was available before as well. However, our POS (Point of Sales) services will be restored soon.
BankIslami said that customers’ safety holds utmost priority; hence we used all our avenues to ensure that none of our valued customers suffer any loss whatsoever. Meanwhile, our teams have been in continuous correspondence with our customers and keeping them well informed of the situation all the way through.
