The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has cautioned salaried workers on the current scams targeting them.
EOCO said it had in recent times received a number of complaints from salaried workers, who had fallen victims to these individuals.
A statement issued in Accra, and signed by Madam Faustina Lartey, Head of Public Relations on behalf of the Executive Director, EOCO said these scammers were attempting to take advantage of people who may be struggling financially.
It said these “unscrupulous” individuals called and sent text messages promising loans at affordable rates and promising to coach individuals to secure loans for a fee.
On the mode of operation, the statement said these scammers called and persuaded salaried workers to secure loans or propose to assist them to secure loans.
It said this was done in the hope of retrieving their locked up funds at Controller and Accountant-General’s Department (CAGD).
