BEWARE: Police Warns Nigerians Against New Scam Method

The Commissioner of Police, Kwara State Command, Mr. Olusola Amore, says intelligence available to his command indicates that internet fraudsters had developed a new method which they now use in scamming Nigerians.

Amore in a statement by
the command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ajayi Okasanmi, on Friday stated that the fraudsters’ earlier scam of sending out text messages to people claiming that their Bank Verification Number had been deactivated was no longer effective, hence their new strategy.
The CP said in the new trick, an e-mail would be sent to people’s phones as if it emanated from their bank’s e-mail service.

He added that the fraudsters would inform their victims that N7000 or more had been debited from their account as subscription fee for the bank’s monthly digest magazine and that the charges would be deducted monthly.

According to him, the fraudsters would then provide a ‘scam link’ that one should click on if he/she wishes to stop or unsubscribe
Amore said,  “Once the link is clicked on a page will open where the bank details and Automated Teller Machine information of the victim is required. If the information is provided, they are able to gain access into the victim’s personal account.
“The command is therefore using this medium to alert members of the public on this new scam method so as to guide against falling victim
“The safety of lives and property of residents of Kwara State is paramount to the command, hence, people are advised to be more vigilant.”
