  • CBN Warns Nigerians Over Fake Website

The Central Bank of Nigeria has said there is a scam being perpetrated by some fraudulent persons whereby unsuspecting members of the public are diverted to a fake website purported to belong to the bank.

According to a statement by the CBN, there is the danger of the fraudsters extorting money from victims based on false claims that payments made are to either guarantee or secure loans from the various intervention funds of the bank.

As a result, the bank said, “That the only website created and maintained by the Central Bank of Nigeria for its engagement with stakeholders is www.cbn.gov.ng; the CBN does not charge any fee from those desirous of accessing funds from its various intervention programmes.
