It’s been over 48 hours since eNaira, Nigeria’s new digital currency, launched and now scammers are attempting to hijack the digital currency.

Yesterday, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) revealed that scammers are trying to hack the digital currency, adding that Jaguda people are looking for a way to steal money from Nigerian citizens using a fake eNaira social media account as a trap.

The Central Bank of Nigeria already revealed an example as they identified a fake social media twitter account called @enaira_cbdc.

The Twitter account has started posting messages which are related to the eNaira, so they can trick Nigerians into believing that the account truly belongs to the central bank of Nigeria.

The fake twitter account which Nigerians think belongs to CBN posted information which is not real. The fake account promised that the central bank of Nigeria would release 50 billion eNaira in currency to Nigerians nationwide.

The Central Bank of Nigeria posted on their twitter account, warning Nigerians to be careful, as they have noticed that the fake account was used to perform criminal and illegal activities.

“The impostor’s handle and fraudulent persons have started posting messages related to the eNaira with the intent of wooing unsuspecting Nigerians.

“They claim that the Central Bank of Nigeria will disburse a total sum of 50 billion eNaira nationwide, among other lies,” CBN added.

“These jaguda people are serious about cheating innocent and unsuspecting members of the public through the links which are attached to their messages in the application to obtain eNaira wallets and become beneficiaries of the fake 50 billion eNaira currency”. They added.
