The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has raised alarm over the increase of fraudulent electronic messages sent to unsuspecting members of the public by fraudsters who masquerade as bank representatives.
Director of Consumers Affairs (NCC) Umar Alkazeem, in his opening address during the campaign, “Shine Your Eyes, No Fall Mugu” in Bauchi on Thursday said it has become pertinent to enlighten the public on the increase of electronic fraud and mode of operation of fraudsters.
Alkazeem who was represented by Banji Ojo, Head of Consumers Policy Development and Monitoring of the Consumers Affairs Department, said that the campaign would enlighten people to recognize fraud and protect themselves.
“It is the wish of NCC that every Nigerian is protected and has adequate knowledge of the telecommunications industry. We have been going around since last year educating Nigerians about economic fraud because it has become rampant in our society.
