For illustrative purpose

Scamming has become a way of earning money for a lot of the youths. Most of the people that fall victims to scams are people who are looking to have a change in their lives without going through the right means. 

In a news reported by starrfm.com.gh, a 35 years old driver has been arrested for posing as military personnel to defraud people an amount of GHS 16,300. The convict, Yaw Gyamfi, has taken GHS 1,300 from his girlfriend's sister with the promise of facilitating her enlistment into the Ghana Armed forces. He also took GHS 15,000 from Nana Kwarteng Ababio II with the same promise of enlisting his four children. After dubbing these people, he went into hiding at Krofrom -Jacobu. He was arrested at his hideout and prosecuted in court. A military T-shirt was found in his belongings. He pleaded guilty to the charges leveled against him and hence was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment.

The youths out there who looking for ways to enter into civil offices should be cautious of who they are trusting with their monies to help them. Getting admission into the air force, military force, police service, immigration service, and the likes is very difficult without knowing or relating to anyone in top positions of these forces.

Stay vigilant in order not to be scammed of your hard-earned money.
