MTN Ghana suspends recalcitrant MoMo agents, adds new ID verification step

Friday 16 April 2021 | 10:23 CET | News
MTN Ghana's MobileMoney has suspended the wallets of several mobile money agents for flouting the "No ID, No Cash out" directive and allowing customers to withdraw funds without valid identification. Those who breach the directive for a second time will have their wallets completely deactivated for good and will be blacklisted all the way to the regulator level, which means they will not be able to work as agents for any other mobile money platform.
