Beware of fraudsters in uniform — Eastern
The Eastern Regional Police have warned residents living in and around the New Juaben Municipality and other parts of the region to be wary of dealing with men in uniform as some are fake and only out to swindle them.
The advice came on the heels of recent incidents of fraudsters in uniform involved in one crime or the other.
The Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ebenezer Tetteh, in an interview with The Mirror, appealed to residents to heed the advice in order not to fall victim to such men.
“You must be suspicious of anyone who comes to you with the promise of enlisting your kids into any of the security services and asks you to part with money.
“Residents must not deal with such persons because they are fraudsters, rather they must report them to the police for action to be taken,” he said.
According to DSP Tetteh, the Regional Command was currently handling two of such cases involving fake military men.
Meanwhile, there was also a case last year involving a fake police officer, now serving his jail term.
According to DSP Tetteh, the command picked up Jonathan Anor in a military uniform on September 4, 2018 following a complaint from Reverend Maxwell Fosu
