Wednesday 6 June 2018 | 11:15 CET | News
Ghanaian telecoms regulator NCA says revenue assurance provider Kelni-GVG has detected and blocked some 3,930 SIM cards being used for SIM box fraud, Ghanaweb reports. Figures from the National Communications Authority (NCA) indicate that since Kelni-GVG started the fraud management in February, by April, it had deactivated 1,437 bad SIMs. Kelni-GVG equipment is not connected to any telecom network yet, but does not necessarily need connectivity for fraud management.
