Busted Mobile App Helps To Expose Sim Box Fraudsters In Ghana

Sometimes your activities online can give you away. In the case of these fraudsters, technology gave them away in a good way

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Eight SIM Boxing centres have been busted by the Police following extensive technical work undertaken by Subah Infosolutions Ghana Limited for the National Communications Authority (NCA), Ministry of Communications and the Security.

Some SIM Box fraudsters were arrested during the exercise in Accra, Tema, Koforidua and Kumasi. Subah’s state-of-the-art telecom devices helped to locate these fraudsters.

Government and the people of Ghana lost about 33.5 million US dollars from the activities of fraudsters in the eight locations busted. Dealing with this situation has therefore become priority for the Ministry of Communications, NCA and telecom operators.

In a media briefing, the Minister for Communications, Hon. Edward Omane-Boamah said: ‘Government is delighted that Subah Infosolutions is helping save the country telecom revenue loses caused by diversion of international calls through fraudulent SIMM boxes. Government will continue the fight against SIMM Box fraud relentlessly.’

The Managing Director of Subah Infosolutions Ghana Limtied, Mr. Birenda Sasmal assured that: ‘Assisting regulatory and security agencies to effect the arrest of these fraudsters is one of the many ways Subah is helping reduce revenue loss to the Government and people of Ghana. Subah remains committed to facilitating effective telecom resource mobilization for national development.’
