Telecommunications company, MTN Ghana, has announced an extension of the waiver on Mobile Money transfers up to GHc100 for three more months.

Per a report by citibusinessnews.com, transactions on interoperability, however, attract the normal charges.
The company also revealed that it revised the limits on daily transactions and wallet balances on its MoMo offer would remain the same, as approved by the Bank of Ghana (BoG) in March.
MTN Ghana also took the opportunity to caution its customers with respect to the activities of fraudsters.
It revealed that fraudsters and scammers would take advantage of every opportunity to defraud customers, so customers should be vigilant.
