Whilst the Central Bank of Nigeria can take no responsibility for losses arising from such sites, services or documents, we are dedicated to the task of playing our part in reducing identity theft and fraud.

If you have any doubts about the legitimacy of any correspondence purporting to be from the Central Bank of Nigeria please do not hesitate to see our If you have received what is obviously a fraudulent email purporting to be from the Bank, it is important that you do not access any links within it, disclose any personal information or reply to it.
