Fight against MoMo Fraud:

In April, MTN implemented the ID presentation for cash-out service. Even though there were some hiccups at the start leading to some agents being sanctioned, it was largely successful.
Also, this year, MTN took the fight against fraud to another level in collaboration with the relevant stakeholders to block the IMEI’s of phones used in undertaking fraud.
