Panic Grips DKM Customers Over Alleged Closure Of Its Accounts… | …But Company Says No Need To Worry

The Purported Letter Informing DKM of Account Freeze

A purported communique from the Financial Intelligence Centre, freezing the accounts of DKM Group of Companies being circulated on whatsapp and other social media networks is creating anxiety among the customers of the financial institution.

According to the communique, the Financial Intelligence Centre is directing the Company with immediate effect to freeze all its debit transactions on any account and other financial assets, pursuant to section 47(1) of the Anti-Money Laundering Act, 2008 (Act 749) as amended.

The affected accounts according to the alleged communique include DKM Mining Limited, DKM Transport, DKM Shea Butter, DKM Gas Filling Station and DKM Cement Depot Limited.

However, the development since it started circulating on social media has created panic reactions among customers of the company who have invested whopping sums of money running into billions of cedis.

Some of the company’s customers who received the news are in a state of confusion and sitting on tenterhooks, not knowing the truth or otherwise of the news being peddled on social media.

They recounted their terrible experience with how they lost their investment in similar situations with some micro finance institutions in the past.

In a sharp response through a press statement signed by its C.E.O Martin K. Delle, the Board of Directors and Management of DKM Diamond Micro Finance has debunked the allegation and indicated that, it has not received any official communique from the said institution freezing its account.

According to the statement, the allegation is false, malicious and a calculated attempt to undermine the reputation of the company and the enviable position it occupies in the financial market.

The statement is therefore calling on the general public particularly its loyal clients not to panic but to continue to do business with the company since it is a genuine financial institution registered under the Banking Act of Ghana.

Unconfirmed news trickling in is that, some policemen are seen in the premises of DKM, engaging the management of the company. will nose around to update you on the development.
