Bank not hacked
It has been brought to our attention that an article published on December 24, 2022 on the back page of the Saturday Sun headlined “Money Gone” contained a number of inaccuracies.
The Nation accepts that while initial contact was made with the bank’s Managing Director for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Donna Wellington for comment, the article was published prior to the bank fully investigating this matter.
That investigation has been completed and the bank has reported to The Nation that it was not hacked and customers’ accounts were not drained.
The Nation accepts that CIBC FirstCaribbean is a well-respected financial institution. It is in this context that the Nation extends an apology to the Bank for any negative perceptions created by the article.
