SCAM: "Worldremit" Is A Scam - Bank Of Ghana Declears

After several suffering from many money doubling company including US tilapia, another one has emerged and it taking over the country. This has brought the attention of the central bank of the country to investigate the money doubling scheme. This is because the ones that were in the country earlier only took the hard-earned monies of the vulnerable Ghanaians and nothing else has been done about it.

Upon the investigations, the Bank of Ghana has found out that "Worldremit" is a new way fraudsters are using to scam people who are not aware of their activities.

In a press statement issued by the Bank of Ghana on 13th October 2021, BoG stated that the fraudulent scheme is different from the globally renowned Fintech, “WorldRemit” which is in the business of international fund transfers.

It explained that the fraudulent “scheme encourages customers to select preferred packages, following which a code is generated by the fraudsters with which they obtain the WhatsApp accounts of their victims for spurious purposes".

The central bank further added that "the scheme is fraudulent and does not reward investors as promised".

Ghanaians are advised to verify the license of any financial institution before going into business with them.

The BoG said it has not licensed any entity or individual to undertake money doubling in Ghana.

“Any individual or entity that participates in such or similar schemes does so at their own peril", BoG said
