“Recently, the wife of a notable politician (names withheld) was taken to one of the shrines where she was duped of over $18,000. She initially gave the fraudsters $10,000, then went home and brought $8,000 to them. After handing the money over to them, they told her to come back in 30 minutes when they would have doubled the money to fill a ‘Ghana must go bag’.


“By the time she came back, expecting to carry the bag of money that was promised her, the miscreants had already abandoned the place. It then dawned on her that she had been duped of her money,” a policeman officer said.

The source also said: “Even when the woman and her family reported the matter to the police, she seemed still convinced that she had genuine business with the fraudsters as she was only talking of the bag of money instead of telling us what exactly happened.”

The official however said that the police have been having a tough time trying to arrest the suspected fraudsters.

Not long ago, a man was arrested by the police
