Police cautions public against vehicle fraud syndicate

The Ghana Police Service is cautioning the public against the activities of a vehicle fraud syndicate team operating across the country.

One of their main methods of operation is to advertise on online marketing sites. The fraudsters would also usually write ‘for sale’ on vehicles they intend using to dupe victims.

After a series of negotiations, they agree on the price with victims for payment to be done in an open space. They then bolt with both the money and the car.

Deputy Director of Police Public Affairs, Sheila Abayie-Buckman, says law enforcement agencies are stepping up their efforts to bring the fraudsters to book.

“We are asking the public to look out for the price at which the car is being offered for sale. Often, and almost always, the price of the car is far below the market value. That alone should issue a notice that something may probably not be right,” she said.

She has also advised persons interested in buying a vehicle to get the documents covering the vehicle and verify their authenticity from the appropriate state institutions.
