The Economic Crime Office (EOCO) has noticed fraudsters are taking advantage of the Bank of Ghana’s directive for customers to get their bank records updated with the Ghana Card.
According to EOCO, the fraudsters usually operate by sending fraudulent messages with links to individuals requesting them to use the link to update their records with their banks.
They also request the Bank account number, Mobile App Pin, Mobile number, and One Time Password (OTP) of their prospective victims, the EOCO said.
The EOCO has advised Ghanaians to verify from their banks before using such links.
It also noted that banks will never ask for the active password of customers’ pins or OTP under any circumstances.
It has also urged customers to report suspicious SMS, email or calls to their banks for the necessary action.
