Don’t link your Ghana cards to your bank account via social media link – BoG warns

The Head of Financial Stability at the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Joseph France, has warned the general public against linking their Ghana cards to their bank accounts through links sent via social media.

Meanwhile, starting July 1 all persons who have failed to link their Ghana Cards to their bank accounts will be unable to withdraw funds from their accounts till they do so.

“We also saw on social media that there are people out there who are saying that persons must link their Ghana card to their account through some links and so on so forth. I think we have to say here and now that no bank has put it out there that you should link your bank account to your bank account remotely.

Speaking in interview with TV3, on Thursday June 30, just a day before the deadline, Mr John Awuah said “If you don’t have it and the deadline comes, yes, your account will not be closed but the risk profile for your account will just be elevated and therefore, there will be extra due diligence that the banks will ask before you can transact.

EOCO said these fraudsters send messages to suspecting customers demanding their bank account details, Mobile App PIN and Mobile numbers.

Ghanaians that reside outside the country and diplomatic missions on the other hand will be able to use their passports to access their accounts.
