The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has arrested a middle-aged man for holding himself out as a recruiting agent of the nation’s tax-collecting body.
The man is said to have taken monies from his unsuspecting clients and assured them of employment at GRA.
The suspect charges his victims as high as GH¢6,000 to get them employed in the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority.
But after sending him a WhatsApp and issuing a cheque for GH¢4,000 in an attempt to tease him, GRA successfully rounded him up on Monday.
Nick Kusenu Kafui has since been put behind bars at the Ministry Police Station, TV3’s Ebenezer Agyekum reported.
The Authority cautioned the public to be wary of such persons, indicating that it does not charge money at any point in its recruitment process.
He took advantage of the Authority’s recruitment advertisement placed in the Daily Graphic to entice the public.
He sent WhatsApp messages with a promise to get people recruited into the Customs Division of the GRA at a fee.
The Commissioner of the Customs Division of the GRA, Isaac Crentsil indicated that the service got a tip-off from a close associate of the authority.
The GRA subsequently devised a plan to arrest him which paid off on Monday.
