CBN, therefore advised members of the public to visit its official website and that of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other relevant member agencies of the FSRCC to verify the registration and license status of such companies and schemes before investing in them.
They also advised Nigerians to report any individual or entities suspected to be involved in such nefarious activities to the law enforcement agencies.
