The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has issued a warning to alert Nigerians of a scam being perpetuated by some fraudulent persons whereby unsuspecting members of the public are diverted to a fake website purported to belong to the bank.

A statement issued on Thursday by the Bank’s Acting Director, Corporate Communications Department, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, said there is the danger of these fraudsters extorting money from victims based on false claims that the payments made are to either guarantee or secure loans from the various intervention funds of the bank.

Mr. Okorafor stated that www.cbn.gov.ng is only one website created and maintained by the Central Bank of Nigeria for its engagement with stakeholders. He maintained that the CBN does not charge any fee from those desirous of accessing funds from its various intervention programmes.

The CBN Spokesman therefore urged members of the public to be wary of scammers by taking every necessary step to verify claims by persons purporting to be acting on behalf of the bank and report any suspicious transaction to the law enforcement agencies or CBN Branch nearest to them.

Members of the public may also wish to call 07002255226 for any clarification on activities of the CBN.
