Beware Of Cheque Fraud – EOCO Warns Ghanaians

Spread the love

The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) says it has observed an upsurge in cheque fraud in parts of Ghana.

According to EOCO, the fraudsters perpetrating this crime ride on the back of technology to deal with their victims via phone calls and online platforms and avoid any form of physical contact.

After they have ordered for the goods, the fraudsters sign a cheque of an unfunded or dormant account which takes a number of days to be detected through the interbanking clearing system.

EOCO says while this is ongoing, the fraudsters will be pushing for the goods to be delivered with the excuse that they have made payment so the business entity is forced to deliver the goods.

After delivery, the cheque gets reversed and together with the goods vanish into thin air.
