CBN cautions customers on BVN


The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has cautioned customers to beware of
fraudsters trying to defraud them in the name of Bank Verification
Number (BVN).
This is contained in a statement signed by the Director, Corporate
Communication of CBN, Mr Ibrahim Muazu, on Thursday in Abuja.
It said the warning was given following repeated complaints from bank
customers over unsolicited mails and text messages.
It said customers should beware of messages, alerting them to
deactivate or suspend their bank accounts due to uncompleted Bank
Verification Number (BVN) registration process.
“The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has again cautioned customers to
beware of fraudsters,’’ it said.
According to the statement, the apex bank has cautioned individuals
against revealing their personal details with which the fraudsters
intend to defraud them.
It recalled an earlier statement that neither the CBN nor commercial
banks would request customers to provide their passwords, card details
or personal identification number (PIN).
It, however, urged bank customers to approach their banks on any issue
