The bank further cautioned the public against a money-doubling scheme.

The Bank of Ghana (BoG) has said it has identified a money-doubling scheme operating in Ghana under the pseudonym ‘Worldremit’, which the central bank describes as a scam.

The BoG in a statement issued on Thursday, October 14, 2021, said that the fraudulent copy of the fintech “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 central bank warned.
