Just In: EOCO cautions all salaried workers
The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has cautioned Ghanaian salaried workers to desist from involving third parties in the acquisition of loans. EOCO was established in 1993 to lead Ghana’s efforts against the increasing challenges of economic and organized crime. It is responsible for preventing, detecting, and investigating crimes such as money laundering, human trafficking, illegal cyber activity, and tax fraud.
The EOCO is therefore urging all workers who wish to engage with third parties to walk to their offices for official documentation to be made between the parties. Therefore given out sensitive details such as Staff IDs, bank account numbers, SSNIT Numbers, etc to third parties may put one at risk.
In a circular issued by the office to all Ghanaian salaried workers, it indicated that anyone who transacts business with such persons does so at their own risk.
