Dubai’s toll gate operator, Salik Company, has cautioned investors to rely on official sources for information and to be vigilant against fake social media posts.

These deceptive posts promise a steady income in exchange for a Dh950 investment.

Reliable Sources and Official Channels:

Ibrahim Al Haddad, the CEO of Salik Company, advised individuals interested in investing in Salik to use official channels and cautioned against falling for misleading social media posts. 

He emphasized the importance of not exposing personal and financial information to these fake accounts, which operate from outside the country.
