Shady recruitment scam resurfaces in Kumasi

The culprits were formerly arrested by the Police in 2017 over their illegal activities

Some individuals behind a suspected network marketing scam busted in 2017 by security agencies in Kumasi have resurfaced.

They are luring unsuspecting people into paying ¢4,000 each with a promise of paying them ¢600 a week.

The leaders of the group claim to sell pendants with magical healing properties. Four of them were arrested in 2017 after camping 580 desperate youth in the shady recruitment scam in separate houses in Atimatim near Kumasi.

After the Regional Security Council sent back over 500 people, mostly from Northern Ghana, the group has resurfaced and has started recruiting hundreds of youth predominantly from the Northern Region.

The police in the region have said they are unaware of the group's renewed operations.
