Beware of Fraudulent Loan Offers

Kindly Share This Story:

The attention of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been drawn to fraudulent
messages in the social media circles requesting unsuspecting loan seekers and
owners of small-scale businesses to apply for loans provided by the Federal
Government through an e-mail address (
purportedly being handled by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
While the CBN, indeed, has several development finance intervention
programmes from which different categories of businesses have benefitted (and
still benefit), the Bank DOES NOT do so through direct interaction with
prospective applicants.
For the avoidance of doubt, there are clearly spelt out procedures for accessing
CBN intervention funds, which are disbursed through Participating Financial
Institutions (PFIs), such as Deposit Money Banks (DMBs), Development Finance
Institutions (DFIs) and Microfinance Banks (MFBs).
Members of the public, particularly youth and owners of small-scale businesses,
are therefore advised to disregard any message requesting them to send their
personal details, including mobile phone numbers, to emails such as or any other one that may be contrived. These
messages are fake and anyone who enters into correspondence with them does
so at his or her own risk.
Prospective applicants are advised to approach their respective banks or the
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) branch nearest to them for clarification on the
procedure for accessing any of the CBN-related loans.
