One must be careful where you click when using social media. Scams are prevalent these days popular on social networks such as Facebooks, WhatsApp, Telegram and Instagram as well.
Many simply put a social media spin on older online fraud. Your social media feeds are as likely as your email spam folder to be full of fake giveaways, Bogus investment tips and many false pop-up banners.
Here in Ghana as we are all aware of the Mobile Money Fraud and Scamming. Today in the morning at 7:30am a shot meeting was held by one of the Prominent telecommunication companies in our country so I have thought it could be better I share it with you. The purpose of the gathering was to educate the citizens and its own customers on how to protect themselves and their MOMO account from these scammers and below were few measures to be taken:
- Receiving a phone call offering Coronavirus items? Like mask and test kit? HANG UP, IT’S A SCAM.
- Do check your wallet and update regularly the privacy settings of your MOMO account. Use options to limit access to your to other people.
- Don’t be giving out your mobile phones to MOMO agent when making Withdrawals (Cash-Out), you should only ask for an aid on how to proceed if you’re facing any challenges.
- Don't not share your four digits PIN with any other person no even from your home because your PIN is simply your PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER.
