Ghanaians Cautioned Against "World Remit" Scam

Cyber Crime fighter, David Gyedu popularly known as DK Cyber, has cautioned Ghanaians against "Worldremit” scams affecting people online who are money greedy.

According to him the public should take note that there is no machine which doubles money for any person or an organisation in the world.

DK Cyber explained that world remittance lets you send money abroad with a Smartphone, tablet or computer to family or anyone in another country.

He emphasized that when migrants send home part of their earnings in the form of either cash or goods to support their families, these transfers are known as workers’ or migrant.

"We are facing fraudulent attempts to impersonate brands online in our current modern era, so Ghanaians should be extra careful when operating social media platforms such as Whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook etc.," he cautioned in an interview with Peace FM News.

He again advised Ghanaians especially those who are greedy for money to be cautious with such offers online, and cautioned that once your money is smartly taken by them the victim can no longer access it.

Bank of Ghana Warning 

Bank of Ghana (BoG) has identified a money doubling scheme operating in Ghana under the pseudo name “Worldremit”. This fraudulent scheme is distinct from the globally renowned Fintech, “WorldRemit” which is in the business of international fund transfers.

This 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 scheme is fraudulent and does not reward investors as promised. The general public is cautioned against patronage of this and other similar
unsanctioned schemes.

Bank of Ghana states that it has not licensed any entities or individuals engaged in ‘Money Doubling’.
