In an effort to prevent and combat theft and embezzlement, the Telecommunications Service Center, MTN Rwanda has revamped the functioning of the Money Money exchange service.

This is part of our continuous investment in systems and processes to ensure that the MoMo platform remains safe and secured while protecting our MoMo customers from fraudsters who may want to take advantage of them.

“All MoMo customers will now have to pre-authorize any MoMo withdrawal request by dialing *182*7*2# before an agent can send a withdraw prompt message.”

Among many other measures to curb and control the fraud on MoMo, MTN encouraged and required users to be very diligent when approving transactions and to pay attention to the many educative materials on MoMo.

MTN reminded its customers that it will never discuss transactions regarding their MoMo wallet over the phone, therefore, such calls should be seen as fraudulent and be reported to MTN via the various reporting channels – by calling 100, reporting to any MTN Service Centre or using @MTNRwanda digital platforms.

Your MoMo Pin always needs to be kept confidential. In case you forgot your MoMo Pin, you don’t have to worry, we have made it easy and convenient to reset your MoMo Pin by dialling *182*9*1#. This however is only allowed if the balance is less than RWF 3,000 in your wallet. If your balance is higher you will need to visit your nearest MTN Service Centre.

To avoid hackers, the method of withdrawing from Mobile Money has been revised
