The Department of Controllers and Accountants General (CAGD), which is the government institution responsible for paying government employee salaries in Ghana, has warned the department of a new fraud that has been reported to them on several occasions by various employees who receive their salary.
It reads, according to the CAGD circular:
“Hi colleagues, there’s a scam going on where someone is going to call him from the office of CAGD. He then directly mentions your name, your rank, and any relevant information about you to convince you that he’s a department employee.
They’ll tell you that there’s some money they’re going to give you (GH 15000) that you’re going to share with them (50-50).
They’re going to tell you now that it’s a secret, and they don’t want any auditors to know, so they’re not going to pay through your mother bank, but only through DALEX, BAYPORT, IZWE.”
Please don’t fall for it because they’re going to use your information to take a loan from either of them that you’re going to want to split the money 50-50 with you, and they’re going to offer you a grace period of three months until deductions.
It’ll be too late by then, so please be careful. You’d have millions of credits defrauded, and this could affect your wages.
