PUBLIC ALERT

WHATSAPP-BASED CYBERCRIME

The Cyber Security Authority has observed a worrying trend of increased reports of unauthorised access and online scams perpetrated through the takeover of social media accounts particularly, WhatsApp.
The compromised social media accounts are used to commit fraudulent activities such as investment fraud, online shopping scams, job recruitment scams, romance scams, and solicitation of funds, among others.

A second trend has to do with a WhatsApp user being lured to expose his/her
nudity over a video call with someone they think they know. The session is
recorded by the other party (or an associate) without the knowledge of the victim. The malicious actor then comes back to extort money from the victim in exchange for not releasing the video.

NOTIFICATION OF DIRECTIVE

RE: AFCFTA HUB IMPLEMENTATION

The Ministry of Communications has noted a growing trend of lack of compliance with important provisions of the Electronic Transactions Act of 2008 (Act 772) and the Postal & Courier Services Regulatory Commission Act of 2003 (Act 649) by operators in the e commerce, e-services, e-logistics and general digital business space in Ghana.

Such failures of compliance with law, regulations, and the norms of sound business practice have led to growing instances of fraud, consumer abuse, and poor services. As Ghana prepares to join seven other countries to accelerate the implementation of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) in October 2022, we anticipate greater challenges because of the flexibility and freedom Single Market affords a fraudsters, scammers and illicit traders to operate.
