Government through the National Security has cautioned the public to disregard the information on some social media platforms, instructing prospective Ghanaian students and business owners to access an alleged ‘United Nations Money Funds.”
The amount ranged from ¢150,000 to ¢700,000.
Addressing the media on the fake UN grant in Accra, Madam Fatimatu Abubakar, the Deputy Minister of Information, said the National Security had picked signals that a cybercriminal with mobile number 0206583702 was behind the diabolic act.
She said the cybercriminal had also circulated this link: https://Slth-leap-payment.blogspot.com/ to swindle their unsuspecting persons.
She said the cybercriminal syndicate further promised their victims of receiving between ¢150,000 and ¢300,000 and ¢400,000 and ¢700,000 depending on their age.
Government said there was no such UN grant and urged the public to ignore such false communication, Madam Abubakar said.
