The Central bank says the business “activities of these unauthorised entities amount to non-adherence of the consumer protection requirements and an abuse of customer data and privacy laws”.

The Bank has therefore advised the general public against transacting with these entities.

It also cautioned Banks and Specialised Deposit-Taking Institutions as well as payment service providers against facilitating the illegal transactions of the unlicensed loan providers.

“The general public is further advised to visit Bank of Ghana’s website for the approved list of licensed institutions at (https://www.bog.gov.gh/supervisionregulation/all institutions/)”, the Bank said.
