Be cautious of fraudsters requesting bank details to link Ghana Card – EOCO warns

Source The Ghana Report

The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has urged the public to be cautious of fraudsters taking undue advantage of the exercise to link the Ghana Card to bank accounts.

According to EOCO, these fraudsters send messages with links to unsuspecting customers pretending to be representatives of the various banks.

They ask for customers’ account numbers, mobile numbers, Mobile App PINs, and One Time passwords (OTP).

A statement by EOCO on Thursday, 30 June 2022, said it had taken “notice with great concerns the rate at which some members of the general public have fallen victims to fraudulent banking transactions”.

It said some are daring enough to transition from text messages to phone calls, requesting the above information.

EOCO has therefore urged the public not to click on any link purporting to be emanating from your bank unless you have confirmed from your bank.

Meanwhile, the deadline given by the Bank of Ghana to link the Ghana Card to the bank account is today, 30 June 2022.
