The Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bankers’
Committee have launched a cyber-security and fraud awareness campaign, called ‘Moni Sense’, to educate the public on how to protect themselves against cyber fraud and scams.
This was disclosed in a statement titled ‘Bankers’ Committee embarks on cyber security & fraud awareness initiative, launches Moni Sense campaign’.
Speaking on the initiative, the Chairman, Financial Literacy and Public Enlightenment Sub-Committee, Mr. Emeka Emuwa, said, “Fraudsters and scammers continually devise new ways to deceive the unsuspecting public, usually with the aim of luring them to inadvertently disclose confidential bank information.
He encouraged Nigerians to always be cautious and ignore any text message, phone call, or email asking to update their bank information, provide sensitive bank details, disclose online banking details, debit card numbers or PIN from anyone.
