Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service has advised the general public to be cautious on mobile money fraud.
In a statement recently released by the police service, how the fraudsters are operating and the procedures they will make the victim go through were brought to light.
The statement further revealed that the fraudsters will send an SMS to the victim that he/she has won a prize from a promotion the supposed Telecommunication company is running.
After, the fraudster would call the victim directing him/her to a mobile money vendor to take the cash price.
Upon arrival at the mobile money vendor, the victim would request to speak to the vendor, directing him to send some amount of money to him(fraudster) on behalf of its victim.
After the transaction, the mobile money vendor and the victim will have realized that they have been scammed.
The Ghana Police Service has cautioned the general public to be on alert for such operations. Read the statement below;
