The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has advised the general public to be vigilant about fraudulent banking activities in the country.

According to EOCO, some clients have fallen victim to the activities of fraudsters amidst measures to link their Ghana card to their bank accounts.

In a statement of notice, EOCO said fraudsters have taken advantage where messages are being sent to customers of banks asking them to click on a hyperlink to update their Ghana card details to their accounts.

“Some daring fraudsters even made phone calls to members of the public to request for their bank account numbers, mobile numbers, Mobile App PIN and One Time Password (OTP),” the statement read.

As a result of these activities, the organisation through its Head of Public Affairs, Faustine Lartey, has cautioned the public to stay away from dealing with any unauthorized persons.

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

“Kindly be informed that your bank will never ask you for your password, pin or OTP, ” said EOCO.

Ghanaians are therefore asked to report any suspicious SMS, email, or phone call to their respective banks for immediate actions.

The Economic and Organized Crime Office thus assured the public of its commitment to prevent and detect fraudulent banking transaction as part of its core mandate to ensure the citizens are protected from fraudsters.
