Mobile Money operator, MTN, has sanctioned 3,000 mobile money agents allegedly caught in mobile money fraud in the last three months.

The move is part of efforts by the country’s biggest telecom company to sanitise and restore integrity to its mobile money platform.

In an interview on the sidelines of a media encounter with the Journalists for Business Advocacy (JBA) in Accra on Thursday, the Senior Manager for Anti-money Laundering, Compliance and Analytics at MTN Mobile Money, Mr Godwin Tamakloe, said some of the agents were currently being processed for prosecution.

“We are currently collaborating with the security agencies to process some of the fraudulent agents for court,” he stated.
