Announcement - Bank Scams and Tricksters

If you are using an internet banking system!!!
You might receive an SMS from a number
similar to the one that you get bank
notifications from. The SMS will indicate a
problem on your account and a 'consultant' will
contact you.
When the 'consultant' contacts you, he/she will
start confirming all your details and your
account number and will ask you what kind of a
phone you are using, etc… (please do not
release any details to them)
The fraudsters will then contact your mobile
phone service provider (which they already have
contacts within) and perform a SIM Swap.
The fraudster will then be able to receive OTP's
(One Time Pins) and/or RVN's (Random
Verification Numbers) from your bank and have
access to your bank accounts.
By the time you realize that your mobile number
is not working; Your money will be out of your
account.
Please broadcast and forward to others and let
everyone know about this very big scam going
on at the moment.
