The regulator of banks and monetary transactions in Ghana, Bank of Ghana(BOG) has warned Ghanaians to be very careful of alleged “Worldremit” money doubling because it’s fraudulent.
The Bank of Ghana is warning the general public to be alert of a money-doubling scheme operating in Ghana under the pretence of the name “Worldremit”, saying, the scheme is fraudulent and does not reward investors as promised.
According to the Central Bank, this fraudulent scheme is distinct from the globally renowned Fintech, “WorldRemit” which is in the business of international fund transfers.
