Ghana police

The Ashanti Regional Police Command has between the periods of 24th and 29th May 2020 arrested 16 persons suspected to be dealing in fake Ghanaian currency in the Region.

The suspects who are all females, between the ages of 17 and 40 years, were arrested at separate locations upon reported cases made against them and their activities. 

So far GHS24,000.00 in fake currencies of 100 and 200 cedis denominations were retrieved from the suspects and are kept in custody as exhibits the Police said in a statement.

According to the Police, the mode of operation of the suspects is to acquire the bigger denomination of fake cedis notes such as GHS100.00 and GHS200.00 denomination to engage in various business transactions in the Region.

Explaining the modus operandi of the culprits, the Police said “They usually use the fake cedi note to purchase items from unsuspecting traders at shopping centers such as Supermarkets and other markets places which do not have currency detectors.

“They move from one shop to the other and present the fake GHS200.00 or GHS100.00 note to purchase items whose values are negligible and take a change. They also take these fake currencies to unsuspecting mobile money vendors and make deposit into their mobile money wallet.”

The Police Command noted that it has since taken measures to investigate the source(s) of the fake currencies, as well create awareness among the general public.

The Police has, therefore, advised the public to be cautious about those who present high denominations to purchase items in small quantity and those who intend to make payments in haste with such bigger denominations.

The Police further urged Ghanaians to get themselves abreast with how to recognise the genuine 200 and 100 Ghana Cedis notes from the counterfeit ones and mobile money vendors to ensure that they receive the currency and examine it before confirming the transfer.

Also, operators of shopping marts and supermarkets have been urged to acquire currency detector were necessary.
