In a tweet on Monday, the CBN through its verified Twitter handle @cenbank said, “CBN has nothing to do with fraudulent messages on social media requesting unsuspecting loan seekers and owners of small-scale businesses to apply for loans provided by the Federal Government through the email: [email protected]m. Please beware!”
