Banking Fraud Alert and Awareness Education

-

The management of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), has released an important information to the public about Banking Fraud Alert and Awareness Education.

The Economic and Organised Crime Office has noticed with great concern the rate at which some members of the general public have fallen victims to fraudulent banking transactions.

The Issue of Concern

Fraudsters have taken advantage of the ongoing call on customers of Banks to link their accounts to their Ghana Card.

Regarding the bank frauds, fraudulent messages are sent to individuals requesting them to click on links in order to update their bank records.

The Fraudsters require people to provide the following details:

  • Bank Account numbers
  • Mobile Numbers
  • Mobile App PIN
  • One Time Password (OTP)

Some daring fraudsters even make phone calls to members of the public to request for the aforementioned information.

You can check: 

The general public is therefore advised on the following:

  1. Do not click on any Link purporting to be emanating from your bank unless you have
    confirmed from your Bank
  2. Kindly be informed that your Bank will never ask you for your PASSWORD, PIN or OTP.
  3. Quickly Report any suspicious SMS, email orPhone Call to your Bank for immediate action.

According to the statement signed by the head of public affairs, the Economic and Organised Crime Office, EOCO in line with its mandate to prevent and detect organised crime will continue to monitor developments with fraudulent banking transactions with the view to ensure that citizens are protected from fraudsters.
