Ghana Post warns people generating fake digital address
Ghana Post is cautioning the general public against imposters who promise to generate the Ghana Post Address system in their homes for money.
According to authorities of the Ghana post, such persons are taking advantage of the recent exercise being conducted by their outfit to extort money from vulnerable citizens.
Management of Ghana Post has begun a nationwide exercise to register Ghanaians on its digital address system.
Speaking in an interview with Citi News in Koforidua as part of a public sensitisation exercise by Ghana Post, the Corporate Head of Communications at Ghana Post, Kobihemaa Osisiadan Bekwoen, admonished the general public to be vigilant and mindful of such persons.
“Tagging plates is optional so if you don’t want it and we take you through the processes, and you know how to generate your digital address, or we help you generate it we write it. If you want us to write on your wall that is your request, we will write to you. If you want to save on your phone, we will help you save it.”
