The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has urged members of the public to ignore any message allegedly emanating from the EFCC that their banks have sent a report of fraudulent transaction on their account.
This followed several calls and e-mail from members of the public across the country that the Commission sent mails to them requesting for their bank details and report of other fraudulent transactions.
One of such mails forwarded to us by a recipient reads in part:
Your bank has sent in a report of fraudulent transaction on your bank account. This link Scanned_Document.pdf shows a list of suspicious transactions. You are to peruse and report to the address in the invitation letter on the link. Please, note that failure to do this, we will begin the process of closing all your accounts using your BVN. Failure to report will be dealt with seriously. Click on View Download V”.
The said mail is not from the EFCC and it is not our modus operandi to request members of the public to send us report of fraudulent transaction on their bank account.
The public are advised to report any suspicious mails or calls from suspected scammers to the EFCC via the following: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com. We could also be reached on our hotlines: 09-9044571, 09-9044572, 09-9044573, or via our Facebook platform:www.facebook.com/officialefcc
