Uganda warns of increase in mobile money fraud

The Uganda Communication Commission urged consumers to be wary of criminals attempting to scam people out of funds using mobile money platforms, having recorded an increase in cases during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

In a blog the regulator outlined security advice for subscribers after noting there were a number of fake promotions being circulated, alongside cases of fraudsters masquerading as operator employees to gain access to account details.

Among the rackets in circulation are attempts to persuade users to handover or enter PIN numbers, which are then used to enable fraudulent transactions.

Brett Favre sending back $1.1M in state money received from Mississippi nonprofit

Brett Favre is returning the $1.1 million his company received from a Mississippi nonprofit for personal appearances Favre did not make, the state’s auditor announced Wednesday.

Auditor Shad White said Favre has already sent back $500,000 and will repay the balance in installments over the next several months.

The money originally came from the state’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.

Payments were made in 2017 and 2018, according to a state audit of the DHS.

“I want to applaud Mr. Favre for his good faith effort to make this right and make the taxpayers and TANF families whole,” White said in a prepared statement, per the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson, Miss. “To date, we have seen no records indicating Mr. Favre knew that TANF was the

“A friend of mine who is a foreign medical specialist has told me that the re-opening of industries and businesses at this moment is a grave mistake,” he said.
