The National Identity Management Commission has warned the public to beware of a fake app that claims to help link the National Identity Number to SIM cards.
In a post on its Twitter handle, NIMC dissociated itself from the app saying it is run by fraudsters who use it to harvest people’s NIN and Bank Verification Number.
“The app was not created by NIMC or the Federal Government of Nigeria. It is run by fraudsters who are currently harvesting people’s NINs and BVNs by default,” NIMC said.
The Commission advised people to protect their data and stop disclosing personal information to unauthorised persons or platforms.
