The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has warned that fraudsters are taking undue advantage of the exercise to link the Ghana Card to bank accounts.

EOCO said these fraudsters send messages to suspecting customers demanding their bank account details, Mobile App PIN and Mobile numbers.

A statement by EOCO on Thursday, June 30 said it has taken “notice with great concerns the rate at which some members of the general public have fallen victims to fraudulent banking transactions.

“Fraudsters have taken advantage of the ongoing call on customers of banks to link their accounts to Ghana Card. Regarding bank fraud, the fraudulent messages are sent to individuals requesting them to click on links in order to update their bank records.

“Customers are therefore asked to provide their bank account names, Mobile numbers, Mobile App PIN, One Time Password. Some daring fraudsters even make phone calls to members of the public to request the aforementioned information

 

 

 

 

“Do not click on any link purporting to be emanating from your bank unless you have confirmed from your bank,” EOCO warned.

Meanwhile, the deadline given by the Bank of Ghana to link the Ghana Card to bank account is today June 30.
