ACC IMPERSONATORS WARNED!!!
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) again brings to the attention of the general public the continued impersonation of the Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, and other staff of the Commission by unknown persons. Despite two (2) convictions in five (5) months for impersonation, this unsavory extortion by some criminals continues and many public officers (past and present) have fallen victim to their criminal scam.
On several occasions, impersonators demand Top-Up for their telephones and cash transfers from former or present public officers by claiming that they are being investigated. The Commission wishes it to be known that such is not the modus operandi of the Commission. Therefore, whenever a member of the public receives a call from any individual claiming to be working for the ACC, that member should visit the nearest ACC office to physically confirm the invite.
No member of the public should make payment to anyone purporting to be an ACC staff by way of Top-Up or mobile money transfers. Those making these kinds of demands are scammers and are not legitimate workers of the Commission.
Members of the public are therefore advised to desist from cooperating with any individual claiming to be a staff of the ACC and making demands of money to them or requesting any other form of advantage in the conduct of their duties. On the other hand, those perpetrators caught exploiting the public will be severely punished.
