Money doubling schemes - PUNCH
BY Okechukwu Nnodim, Abuja
The National Information Technology Development Agency has called on the general public to disregard fake news claiming that NITDA or its staff endorsed money doubling financial investment schemes.
It refuted any affiliation or endorsement of these platforms and advised the public on the need for caution when dealing with online money doubling schemes, especially via WhatsApp mobile application.
It said in a statement issued in Abuja by the Head, Corporate Affairs and External Relations Unit, Hadiza Umar, that the fraudulent financial investment companies lure users by requesting that they join their WhatsApp groups.
