Exclusive: How To Save Yourself From Payslip Fraud- CAGD. A must read

According to the Controller & Accountant General’s Departments’ E-Payslip system is an intelligent system  designed for workers to have easy access to their payslip. You can access your payslip from anywhere either on your mobile phone or any computer with internet connection.

A payslip is a piece of paper given to an employee at the end of each week or month, which states how much money he or she has earned and How much tax has been taken off.

However, a lot of workers get home with small money in their pocket at the end of the month all in the name of cyber crime and internet fraud.

Phishing is one of the most common online fraud which deals with collecting of a person’s personal information through E-mail, or websites claiming to be legitimate. These information can include your username, password, credit card number, SSNIT number etc.

Working for a whole month for someone to enjoy the money is something no human being in his or her right senses would like to experience.

How To Save Yourself From Payslip Fraud

Guideline for all government workers on GoG
payroll.

Choosing E-Payslip password
1. Never use your phone number as your E-
payslip
2. Never use your date of birth as your E-payslip
password.
3. Never use your name or names as password
4. Do not use repeated numbers as password,
say 1111 or 2020.
These things are easily predicted. Don’t be lazy Make a bit unpredictable and write it down securely if you fear forgetting. Do this for your password and email too.

Checking and printing payslip
1. Learn to check your payslip yourself.
2. Let only trusted people check your payslip for you.

3. If you open your payslip on anyone’s phone or, computer make sure to loge out before handing Over.

4. Don’t write your staff ID and password and
give to someone to go print your payslip for you, if it becomes necessary, change the password after that.

5. Download your payslip on your phone or
computer and send it for printing. It saves you
from money any unauthorized access.

6. When you go to cafe to print your payslip, let
the attendant type everything but type the
password yourself.

7. Make sure the attendant logs out before you
leave or change the password afterwards.

8. If a printed payslip is not clear and a new one
is to be printed for you, ensure that the unclear
one is destroyed or take it away – never leave it
behind.

Dealing with loan and insurance companies.

1. Check your own affordability and tell them or
let a trusted person do it for you.
2. Generate the MANDATE FORM yourself and
give them the code or let a trusted person do it
for you.
3. Never trust the loan and insurance officers with your staff ID and password.

4. If it becomes necessary to give out your details to generate mandate, do well to check the mandate history to confirm if they have generated only one or the required number needed Change the password latter.

5. For financial security sake, teachers ought to
take loans for business.

6. It’s wise to take loans from your banks or
union rather than the financial institutions.

7. Do not allow someone to force you to take loans

Working on arrears or any issues with payslip
from CAGD

1. Never trust anyone that calls you to help you
get your arrears or promotion. Controller
doesn’t have a collective center.

2. In case you want to give it a try, don’t give
your payslip password out. Anyone that claims
to work at the controller and wants to help you
with arrears or any related issues only needs
your staff ID. If he ask for anything else, he is
fake.

A true worker would get access to every detail
about you with just your ID. Your name would
probably be for confirmation.

4. If you give out you ID and password, they
would generate mandate form from your payslip and take loan in your name without your notice.

6. If they promise to work payment of arrears
for you for commission and you give them your
password, you may receive money and pay
them their cut but what you have received is not
arrears but loan. Wait for deductions.

7. Don’t be deceived to believe persons that
calls you claiming to be from Controller for a
near fact that they can mention your name,
date of birth school or district. Remember your
employment details are flying everywhere on
social media, it’s not magic.

In case you don’t know what mandate form is,
It’s like your signature, an authority note or
undertaking, that your payslip is programmed to generate which when given to controller means you have agreed for controller to deduct an agreed amount from your salary for a third party organization for a certain duration.
