GIPC Cautions Public Against Fraudulent Mobile Money Solicitations

The Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) is alerting the public to a scam involving individuals impersonating GIPC staff and requesting mobile money payments from investors and businesses for registration with the GIPC or renewal of certificates.

 The Centre wishes to emphatically state that it does not solicit mobile money payments for any of its services. 

All services by the GIPC are conducted through a well-defined procedure (outlined on the GIPC website @ https://www.gipc.gov.gh/investor-guide/) that does not involve mobile money transfers. 

All legitimate GIPC fees are clearly outlined on the Centre’s website and can only be paid through bank transfers or banker’s drafts made payable directly to the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre.

 The GIPC thus advises the public to be wary of any individual or entity requesting mobile money payments in its name. 

If you encounter such a situation, please do not engage. 

However, report the incident to law enforcement and inform the Centre. 

 How to Contact the GIPC: • Contact the GIPC by phone: [ +233 302 6651 25/6 and +233 244 318252 /4 ] • Email the GIPC at [info@gipc.gov.gh]

 • Report the incident at the GIPC head office located at: [No 1 Rangoon Lane, Vivo Place, Cantonments-Accra] 

 The GIPC is committed to protecting the integrity of its services and ensuring a transparent investment environment in Ghana. 

We encourage all investors to be vigilant and to contact the Centre directly for any clarification on our registration and certification procedures. -END-
